int2p_Wrap

Interpolates pressure levels to a different set of pressure levels and returns 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 int2p_Wrap (
		pin        : numeric,  
		xin        : numeric,  
		pout       : numeric,  
		linlog [1] : integer   
	)

	return_val  :  numeric

Arguments

pin

An array of any dimensionality containing input pressure levels. If multi-dimensional, the level dimension must be in the rightmost position and the values must be monotonically increasing or decreasing.

xin

An array of any dimensionality containing the data to be interpolated. Must be the same shape and size as pin.

pout

An array of any dimensionality containing output pressure levels with values monotonically increasing or decreasing. If multi-dimensional, the level dimension must be in the rightmost dimension and all other dimensions must be the same as xin. If one-dimensional, then all of xin will be interpolated to the same levels. Must have the same units as pin.

linlog

A scalar integer indicating the type of interpolation:

abs(linlog) == 1 --> linear interpolation
abs(linlog) != 1 --> log interpolation

If linlog is negative, then extrapolation to levels outside the range of pin will occur. Use extrapolation with caution.

Description

This function is identical to int2p, except the return value will have metadata added based on metadata attached to xin. See the int2p page for full documentation and examples.
