Temperature on pressure level

Description

Hi,
I've got a probably trivial question, but I can't find the right help on the web site. I'm working with the 3D temperature filed on pressure level (UM v6.1, stash 16203). I need a smooth field from the top of the model to the ground (from 20hPa to 1000hPa), but when the pressure surface intersects the orography, I got discontinuity and random values in the temperature field. The 1000hPa level is completely land-masked. Example files can be found in /home/n02/n02/abozzo/work/um/xefse/A/apm
Is there any tool to extrapolate the "below ground" temperature in order to smooth out the field? Or am I using the wrong diagnostic?

Thank you,
Alessio

Hi Alessio,

The tool to compute diagnostics on pressure levels is called NDdiag. This can be found on the CMS web site under Tools & Utilities > UM Tools > Analysis and Plotting. Let me know if this solves your problem.

Regards,

Willie

Hi Willie,

thank you for the suggestion. I'll try with NDdiag, it seems to be the right tool for me.
