ncl_csc2sd: convert from Cartesian to lat/lon coordinates

NAME

CSC2SD - convert from Cartesian to lat/lon coordinates

SYNOPSIS

CALL CSC2SD (N, X, Y, Z, RLAT, RLON)

DESCRIPTION

N
(integer, input) The number of coordinates to convert.
X,Y,Z
(double precision, input) The Cartesian coordinates of the input points.
RLAT
(double precision, output) The latitudes of the output coordinates, in degrees.
RLON
(double precision, output) The longitudes of the output coordinates, in degrees.

USAGE

CSC2SD is called to find equivalent latitude and longitude coordinates to specified Cartesian coordinates on the unit sphere. The coordinate (1.,0.,0.) is mapped to the latitude/longitude coordinate (0.,0.). The latitude/longitude coordinates are returned in degrees. CSC2SD is a double precision version of CSC2S.

ACCESS

To use CSC2SD, load the NCAR Graphics library ngmath.
