Dear Ke Deng,

In the future, please only send your messages to ncl-talk, and don't post questions to individual people.
Whenever you do this, folks on the list assume that the individual will answer, and everybody else ignores
the question.

I think what you want is the "getind_latlon2d" function, but this will only work if your lat/lon grid

This is UNTESTED:

lat2d = f->lat
lon2d = f->lon
nm = getind_latlon2d(lat2d,lon2d,(/20,70,/),(/110,260/))

Then, you can subscript with:

sst_CW(lat | nm(0,0):nm(0,1), lon | nm(1,0):nm(1,1), time | :)

If your grid doesn't have a nice rectangular structure, then you will need to consider regridding it
to a rectilinear grid.

See rcm2rgrid_Wrap, or ESMF_regrid:

For example I use this function evecv = eofunc(sst_CW({lat|20.:70.},{lon|110.:260.},time|:),1,False). So I want the regular lon and lat. Do u know how to solve this. Attached is my script about how to calculate the PDO. Thanks!
