Hello everyone,

Lately I am working on converting/printing the wrf output on .dat files. I need to have the u and v components in an ascii file in order to have them as input for another model. However, I am not sure how this can be done with NCL.

Any help is highly appreciated!.

Thank you in advance.

Hi Nefeli,

This site has some great examples of printing to ascii:

'write_matrix' works very well. asciiwrite can be a bit messier, but works for what you would need to do.
