Filters

Here are some filters that are useful for manipulating data. There are actually many more available, but they have to be entered manually. See Ingrid Function Documentation for more information. Average over X Y time | X Y X time Y time | X Y time |
RMS (root mean square with mean *not* removed) over X Y time | X Y X time Y time | X Y time |
RMSA (root mean square with mean removed) over X Y time | X Y X time Y time | X Y time |
Maximum over X Y time | X Y X time Y time | X Y time |
Minimum over X Y time | X Y X time Y time | X Y time |
