Reference to an input netCDF file opened with addfile.res
A variable containing an optional list of plot resources, attached as attributes.y_start
Start and end values of the y (S-N) locations of the zoomed area of interest.x_start
Start and end values of the x (W-E) locations of the zoomed area of interest.
A scalar id of the map created is returned.
This function zooms into a portion of the ARW WRF model domain, and creates a map background for this area.
wrf_map_zoom is part of a library of functions and procedures in WRFUserARW.ncl written to help users plot ARW WRF model data.
