## 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
