Thermospheric General Circulation Models (TGCM)

TGCMPROC-like master scripts

zp/Height vs. Latitude



master script: zplat_master.ncl

This script contours selected fields over a polar stereographic map projection at selected Zp pressure levels. User settable options include color, curly-vector overlay, and postscript file output.
1) user choice: black and white + longitude (geographic coordinates)

     
     comment out colormap
     ; colormap = "BlWhRe" 
     type       = "lon"
     lon2plt    = -180 
     
2) user choice: color + solar local time (geographic coordinates)

      
     colormap  = "BlWhRe" 
     type      = "slt" 
     slt       =  10 
     
3) user choice: color + slt + limit axis + manually select contour intervals (geographic coordinates)

     
     colormap = "BlWhRe" 
     type     = "slt" 
     slt      =  12 
     ymin     = -13
     ymax     =  -5
     manlev   =  True
     minlev   = -40
     maxlev   =  40
     int      =  40
     
4) user choice: color + zonal mean (magnetic coordinates)

    
    colormap = "BlWhRe" 
    type     = "zmean" 
    
5) user choice: color + height interpolation

    
    colormap = "BlAqGrYeOrRevi200"
    height   = True
    top      = 100
    bott     = 20
    dz       = 40
    
6) user choice: color + denisty unit converstion + limit y-axis

    
    colormap      = "BlAqGrYeOrRevi200"
    ymin          = -8
    ymax          = -4
    density_units = "CM3"
