# Interpolation¶

nctoolkit features built in methods for horizontal and vertical interpolation.

## Horizontal interpolation¶

We will illustrate how to carry out horizontal interpolation using a global dataset of global SST from NOAA. Find out more information about the datset here.

The data is available using a thredds server. So we will work with the first time step, which looks like this:

[1]:

import nctoolkit as nc
ds = nc.open_thredds("https://psl.noaa.gov/thredds/dodsC/Datasets/COBE2/sst.mon.mean.nc")
ds.select(time = 0)
ds.plot()

nctoolkit is using Climate Data Operators version 1.9.10
