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 lon lat | lon lat |
RMS (root mean square with mean *not* removed) over lon lat | lon lat |
RMSA (root mean square with mean removed) over lon lat | lon lat |
Maximum over lon lat | lon lat |
Minimum over lon lat | lon lat |
