Hello. I am looking for a way to find the maximum / minimum coordinates from a wlfout file. Specifically, I want to know the position of the central pressure of the typhoon. Therefore, I would like to investigate the position that takes the minimum value of (P + PB) * 0.01.
Is it better to use the read_wrf_nc tool that can derive the maximum and minimum values?
Or is there any other way?
read_wrf_nc won't output the min/max values of the variables. You need to write a code to find this value and its position. Fortran, C, NCL, Python, etc. can be easily used to determine the value and position.
