Thermospheric General Circulation Models (TGCM)

TGCMPROC-like master scripts

zp/Height vs. Longitude



master script: zplon_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.

Examples:
1) user choice: black and white + latitude (geographic coordinates)

     
     comment out colormap
     ;colormap = "BlAqGrYeOrRevi200" 
     lat2plt   = -60 
     
2) user choice: color + latitude (geographic coordinates)

      
     colormap = "BlAqGrYeOrRevi200" 
     lat2plt  = -60 
     
3) user choice: color + latitude (magnetic coordinates)

      
     colormap = "BlAqGrYeOrRevi200"
     lat2plt  = -60 
     
4) user choice: color + latitude + limit axis (geographic coordinates)

      
     colormap = "BlAqGrYeOrRevi200"
     lat2plt  = 60 
     ymax     = 0 
     
5) user choice: color + lat + interp to height (geographic coordinates)


     
     colormap = "BlAqGrYeOrRevi200" 
     lat2plt  = 60.
     height   = True
     top      = 100
     bott     = 40
     dz       = 10
     
6) user choice: color + latitude + manually set contour intervals (geographic coordinates)

      
     colormap = "BlWhRe"
     lat2plt  = -60
     manlev   =  True
     minlev   = -14000
     maxlev   =  14000
     int      =  2000
     
7) user choice: color + latitude + limit y-axis + denisty unit conversion intervals (geographic coordinates)

      
     colormap      = "BlAqGrYeOrRevi200"
     lat2plt       = -60
     ymin          = -8
     ymax          = -4
     density_units = "CM3"
