Hi Lei,

Do loops in any scripted language can be slow, and especially nested
do loops.

Since you can do array arithmetic in NCL without having to loop, I
highly recommend using this feature. Also,, anything inside a do loop
that doesn't need to be there should be moved outside the loop.

Here's another UNTESTED version of your code, that's a bit shorter.
This is probably not quite right, but hopefully you get the idea:

alat2d = conform((/natime,nalat/),alat,1)
rlat2 = (alat2d+1.429)*3.14159265/180.0 ; convert degree to radians
rlat1 = (alat2d-1.429)*3.14159265/180.0
temp = sin(rlat2)-sin(rlat1)
diff_lon = 2.8152d*3.14159265d/180.0d
R = 6371.0d*1000.0d ; unit is meterncd
area = R*R*diff_lon*temp
area = where(area.lt.0,0.0,area)
totalfch4 =0.0d

do i =0, natime-1
do j=0,nalat-1
kk = ind(.not.ismissing(aFCH4(i,j,:)))
if(.not.all(ismissing(kk))) then
totalfch4=sum(aFCH4(i,j,kk)*area)
afch4(i) = afch4(i)+totalfch4
end if
delete(kk)
end do
end do
