Re: [ferret_users] Conditional with more than one variable

Your later question makes me thing you have made a start at this, but  some useful tips for a new user. 

1) Work through the tutorial script

yes? go tutorial

where you will read what's on the screen as it makes plots.

2) have a look at the "tutorials" page, to see what is there, and explore topics you may be interested in.

For your dataset, you've found:

yes? use salt.2008.nc
yes? sh dat

Try "SHOW GRID salt", which will tell you the range of x, y, and T data on the grid - the translation of the coordinates into world coordinates will tell you what range you can use, for example, for:

PLOT/x=300/y=10/z=20 salt

SHADE/T=15-may/Z=0 salt

(15-may can be used without a year, but only if the time axis is a modulo axis; the average of all Januaries, all Februaries, etc.)

Hi Folks,

I am a new user for hycom and Ferret, I am facing problem regarding the concept of plot, fill and shade, kindly help me with that and please let me know how can i plot the data as :

yes? use salt.2008.nc
yes? sh d
     currently SET data sets:
    1> ./salt.2008.nc  (default)
 name     title                             I         J         K         L         M         N
 DATE                                      ...       ...       ...       1:12      ...       ...
 TIMEPLOT                                  ...       ...       ...       1:12      ...       ...
 SALT     Salinity                         1:360     1:418     1:40      1:12      ...       ...
when ever i am trying to plot the data it is giving me an error that the data is 3d, i understand that in ferret only 2d can be plotted but is there is any way by which i can plot this data.

You can have multiple AND statements, but if there is an error in one of the expressions, or incompatible grids, it can be hard to know where that is happening.

What I would do to track down what's going wrong is to use Ferret to plot or list parts of your _expression_.

(I don't know what the grids are. Set the region specifiers so you can do useful 2D plots)

  shade/k=1 ifv (temp_out ge 6 and temp_out le 20 ) then 1
or define variables similar to what you're going to compute and look at them

  let temp_var = ifv (temp_out ge 6 and temp_out le 20 ) then 1
  list/x=-43 temp_var[y=-24:-23@din,z=@din]

Once you know what's going on with your individual expressions, you could start putting them together, building towards the full _expression_ and again evaluate. So, can you do the calculation with temp and salt? 

   let u_acas_out = if (temp_out ge 6 and temp_out le 20 and salt_out ge 34.6 and salt_out le 36 ) then u_out
   load u_out

   let tr_u_out_430=u_acas_out[x=-43,y=-24:-23@din,z=@din]/1e6
   load tr_u_out_430

If that is successful, add more terms and work along.  If you run into problems or see error messages, you've got a smaller set of things going on so you may be able to see where that's happening.

Also, if you write back, please say what error messages or other behavior you are seeing.

Dear fellows,

I am trying to calculate the velocity integrated over an area, but I need it to be in the intersection of 3 variables and I can't do it.

Previously, I was able to do it with just 1 variable (density), but when I put the three of them together, something bad happens.

I believe is an error of syntax but I can't figure out the right way to do it.

Here is part of the code:

! Load the data
use temp_salt_out.nc    !d=1
use u_v_out.nc            !d=2
use temp_salt_nov.nc    !d=3
use u_v_nov.nc            !d=4
use temp_salt_dez.nc    !d=5
use u_v_dez.nc            !d=6

set mem/size=100

! Some corrections of the data
let temp_out  = (temperature[d=1]*0.000732)+294-273.15
let salt_out  = (salinity[d=1]*0.00153)+(-0.00153)
let dens_out=rho_un(salinity[d=1],temperature[d=1],0)-1000
let u_out  = (u[d=2]*0.00061)+(0)
let v_out  = (v[d=2]*0.00061)+(0)

! The condition part for temperature, salinity and depth
let u_acas_out = if (temp_out ge 6 and temp_out le 20 and salt_out ge 34.6 and salt_out le 36 and dens_out ge 25.5 and dens_out le 27.2) then u_out

! Calculate the integrated velocity.
let tr_u_out_430=u_acas_out[x=-43,y=-24:-23@din,z=@din]/1e6

Is there anyway to make this work? Any thoughts?
