Re: [ferret_users] how to set the axes

You are right and that is exactly what I'm looking for.
I know the use and show data commands, what I don't know and don't get from the manual is how I can define the axes that I want...I want a time series profile of uvel. could you please give me the code? a code or command that produces the time series graph of uvel....time from 0 to 24 hrs in x axis, and uvel in y axis.
Thank you,

Ferret gets information about the variable from the dataset, including its  grid and the units of the variable and its coordinate axes.  Is this netCDF data?   What Ferret commands did you use to open the data? If it is netCDF, then the commands,
yes? use dataset.nc  ! whatever your file is called
yes? show data
will give you information about what is in the file; the variables and their grid.  Because your plot is labeled with depth and velocity, I am guessing that you are not be looking at the data you're expecting.  Perhaps what you have is one timestep from the result.

I use COHERENS to run a test case  in linux and when I type show data in ferret  my data are uvel (xcomponents of current), drho (density difference) and tke(turbulent kinetic energy). by using the plot command like plot uvel, it automatically sets the y axes to be depth and x axes to be uvel. but I need to set x axis to be time and y axis to be uvel
would you please let me know how I can define x axes to be time from 0 to 24 hours, and y axes to be my uvel (x components of current).
my ferret version is 6.85.
I attached 2 files, the first one is what is given by just  typing :"plot uvel"
the second one is in a sample in the coherens manual....I need to define my axes to be like the second file.
please let me know the command, I couldn't find any thing in the ferret manual....
thank you,
