There can not be function for everything.

You can always write your own.

Also, is the (x,y,z,t) fortran ordering???

Is 'z' one dimensional or 4 dimensional?

let: dz=layer_thickness,

q=variable, fortran(x,y,z,t)=>ncl(t,z,y,x) ; 0,1,2,3

z_zavg = dim_sum_n(q*dz, 1)/dim_sum_n(dz) ; q and dz (x,y,z,t)

-- dz4 = conform(dz,z,1) z_zavg = dim_sum_n(q*dz4, 1)/dim_sum_n(dz4) ; q(x,y,z,t), dz(z) On 1/21/13 10:00 AM, Hyacinth Nnamchi wrote: > > Hi users, > I want to calculate the vertical average of a 4D (x,y,z,t) ocean variable. The problem is that the depths will have to vary: I want to use the thermocline depth (already calculated, x,y,t) as the base at each grid point, for the vertical vertical averaging. Is there a way/function to do this ncl? > Thanks in advance. > Hyacinth > > > > > _______________________________________________ > ncl-talk mailing list > List instructions, subscriber options, unsubscribe: > http://mailman.ucar.edu/mailman/listinfo/ncl-talk > _______________________________________________ ncl-talk mailing list List instructions, subscriber options, unsubscribe: http://mailman.ucar.edu/mailman/listinfo/ncl-talkReceived on Mon Jan 21 12:59:54 2013
