Re: [ferret_users] converting depth cordinated into density (sigma) cordinate

Hi ferreters
Thank you Ansley. This is a very good FAQ that is solving some of my issues but is there a way to convert Pressure(dbar) axis to the Z (m) axis ?
This is the detail of my data

use salt_rg.nc
sh da
currently SET data sets:
1> ./salt_rg.nc  (default)
name     title                                               I         J              K         L          M         N
SALT     SALT_RG[L=100]                   1:360     1:130     1:58      1:152     ...       ...
 sh gr salt
 name       axis                                  # pts           start                                 end                      subset
 LONGITUDE LONGITUDE               360mr       20.5E                            19.5E(379.5)           full
 LATITUDE  LATITUDE                        130 r     64.5S                                64.5N                   full
 PRESSURE  DEPTH (dbar)                58 i-         2.5                                  1975                    full
 TIME      TIME                                    152 i   16-JAN-2004 05:14    16-AUG-2016 04:28       full
 normal    E
 normal    F


these are the depth levels in meters on which i want my data

regards, Binny

Another place to search is the FAQ's.  What I do is open up the FAQ page and use my browser's search capability.

Here's the one you need: http://ferret.pmel.noaa.gov/Ferret/faq/depth-axis-to-density-axis

Dear Ferreters

I think ferret is capable enough to convert depth co-ordinates (m) into density cordinates (kg/m^3) but how i don't know and i searched the mail archives but found nothing regarding this.

this is the description of my data and details what I am looking for.

i am having data of Potential temperature (PT), Salinity (S) and potential density (PD) all are from 0-2000 m in depth (Z), Lon(X), Lat (Y) and Time (t). So my data is PT(X,Y,Z,t), S(X,Y,Z,t) and PD(X,Y,Z,t). Now I want PT(X,Y,PD,t), S(X,Y,PD,t) and Z(PD) i.e. I want temperature and salinity as a function of density rather then depth. so that i can make depth section fill plot of temperature and salinity and overlay contours of density on it.

I am badly struck in this problem as there is no such link in the mail archive. please help me out for this problem

regards, Binny
