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:

import nctoolkit as nc
ds = nc.open_thredds("")
ds.subset(time = 0)

Interpolating to a regular lonlat grid

If you want to interpolate to a regular latlon grid, you can use to_latlon. lon and lat specify the minimum and maximum longitudes and latitudes, while res, a 3 variable list specifies the resolution. For example, if we wanted to regrid the globe to 0.5 degree north-south by 1 degree east-west resolution, we could do the following:

ds = nc.open_thredds("")
ds.subset(timestep = 0)
ds.to_latlon(lon = [-79.5, 79.5], lat = [0.75, 89.75], res = [1, 0.5])
