Lat_u in ROMs output

#1 Post by ara952 » Mon Sep 09, 2019 2:39 pm

Hi all,
I have recently downloaded a ROMs output from the Golf of Maine Operational Forecast System. I want to extract the U and V parameter from the NetCDF file. Unfortunately, all lat_u values are set to zero. I was wondering if there is any steps to fix it base on the mesh or other variables?
Thank you

sounds strange. check to see if you can get other variables, it might just be the server is not getting the data to you.
if you can get lon_rho and lat_rho, or even better lon_psi and lat_psi, then you can compute the lon_u and lat_u and lon_v and lat_v to a reasonable degree of accuracy as compared to what they used.
