I've been given some model data. The grid on which the
ocean model exists is irregular, with a displaced north pole.
The grid is 100 units in x and 122 units in y.
All variables exist on this grid type. However, the
dimensions of each variable are not in degrees of longitude or
latitude. Rather, they are in units of grid cells (i.e. 1
--> 100, and 1 --> 122).
What I want to do is take each variable and redefine their
latitude and longitude dimensions so that they are now in
degrees, not grid cell number. The ocean model provides this
information in separate variables called TLONG and TLAT:
- TLONG(100,122) = array of t-grid longitudes (degrees
- TLAT(100,122) = array of t-grid latitudes (degrees
So I am struggling with how to take the values held in
the variables TLONG and TLAT and set them as the dimension
values for other ocean variables, say TEMP and SALT.
There must be a simply way of doing this so I thought I'd
