Re: How to calculate Threat Score in NCL

TS = hits / (hits + misses + false alarms)

No need for a function. You can compute the counts
of each category via num or dim_num_n (dim_num).

Note that either the numerator or the denominator
must be converted to type float (tofloat) to avoid
integer division which would always return 0.

hits = num(...) ; dim_num_n(...)
misses = num(...) ; dim_num_n(...)
false_alarms = num(...) ; dim_num_n(...)

TS = tofloat(hits)/(hits + misses + false alarms)
TS@long_name = "Threat Score"

You can create your own function.

function threat_score (...)
begin
:
return(TS)
end

Good luck
