Re: eof

Hello Murat,
You might want to start by regridding your data to a space and/or
time grid that is coarser and computing EOFs on that grid first.  This
will give you some experience with the functions and you will get
some feel for what the results will look like.

Have you tried running the examples in the on-line demo of the EOF

The analysis as you may know, solves a matrix problem where the matrix is
dimensioned (NX*NY) by NT, n your case  966 by 29920.   The EOF functions
use other workspace as well which demands even more memory.   Do you
have 60 megabytes of memory available to you on your system?  I was able
to begin the eof_stat calculation with  (x=46,y=21,t=29220) using some data
generated by an analytic function, but completing the computation is time
consuming even for smaller problems.

define axis/t=1:29920:1 tax
define axis/x=1:46:1 xax
define axis/y=1:21:1 yax
define grid/x=x10/y=y10/t=tax g10x10
set grid g10x10

set memory/size=60
let eofstat = eof_stat (sample_function,  2. , 0.1)    !sample_function as in the EOF
