dim_variance_n_Wrap

Computes unbiased estimates of the variance of a variable's given dimension(s) at all other dimensions and retains metadata.

Prototype

load "$NCARG_ROOT/lib/ncarg/nclscripts/csm/contributed.ncl"  ; This library is automatically loaded
                                                             ; from NCL V6.2.0 onward.
                                                             ; No need for user to explicitly load.

	function dim_variance_n_Wrap (
		x        : numeric,  
		dims [*] : integer   
	)

	return_val  :  float or double

Arguments

x

A variable of numeric type and any dimensionality.

dims

The dimension(s) of x on which to calculate the variance. Must be consecutive and monotonically increasing.

Description

This function is identical to dim_variance_n, except the return value will have metadata added based on metadata attached to x. See the dim_variance_n page for full documentation and examples.
