Interpolation to pressure levels

This post was from a previous version of the WRF&MPAS-A Support Forum. New replies have been disabled and if you have follow up questions related to this post, then please start a new thread from the forum home page.



I have model output from a successful MPAS run which has been converted via the convert_MPAS executable. The analysis I am doing involves integration across pressure levels. Is there an easy way to convert the pressure variable output into a new coordinate for other variables (i.e., can I convert the output from model levels to pressure levels)?

Thanks for your continued assistance,
There isn't at present any "officially supported" tool for interpolating MPAS-Atmosphere output to pressure levels. However, the Python script from this post might serve as an example of how you could interpolate a field to a single isobaric level.

(Note: I've modified the title of this thread to indicate that the question is one of interpolation to pressure levels.)
