Product

group harp_product

The HARP Products module contains everything related to HARP products.

The representation of a HARP product in C is a structure containing:

  • an array of variables

  • an array of dimension lengths for each dimension type (unavailable dimensions have length -1)

  • the source_product global attribute (can be NULL)

  • the history global attribute (can be NULL)

Note that the Conventions global attribute is not included as this is automatically handled by the import/export functions of HARP. Similar, the datetime_start and datetime_stop attributes are handled by the export function. They are set to the minimum and maximum values of the variables datetime, datetime_start and datetime_stop (if available).

For each variable in the HARP product the dimensions need to match the length of their type as defined in the dimension array of the HARP product (for all dimension types except ‘independent’).

Functions

int harp_product_bin(harp_product *product, long num_bins, long num_elements, long *bin_index)

Bin the product’s variables. This will bin all variables in the time dimension. Each time sample will be put in the bin defined by bin_index. All variables with a time dimension will then be resampled using these bins. The resulting value for each variable will be the average of all values for the bin (using existing count or weight variables as weighting factors where available). Variables with multiple dimensions will have all elements in the sub dimensions averaged on an element by element basis.

Variables that have a time dimension but no unit (or using a string data type) will be removed. The exception are count and weight variables, which will be summed.

All variables that are binned (except existing count/weight variables) are converted to a double data type. Bins that have no samples will end up with a NaN value.

If the product did not already have a ‘count’ variable then a ‘count’ variable will be added to the product that will contain the number of samples per bin.

Only non-NaN values will contribute to a bin. If there are NaN values and there is not already a variable-specific count or weight variable for that variable, then a separate variable-specific count variable will be created that will contain the number of non-NaN values that contributed to each bin. This count variable will have the same dimensions as the variable it provides the count for.

For angle variables a variable-specific weight variable will be created (if it did not yet exist) that contains the magnitude of the sum of the unit vectors that was used to calculate the angle average.

For uncertainty variables the first order propagation rules are used (assuming full correlation for systematic uncertainty variables and using the harp_get_option_propagate_uncertainty() setting for total and random uncertainty variables).

Return

  • 0, Success.

  • -1, Error occurred (check harp_errno).

Parameters
  • product: Product to regrid.

  • num_bins: Number of target bins.

  • num_elements: Length of bin_index array (should equal the length of the time dimension)

  • bin_index: Array of target bin index numbers (0 .. num_bins-1) for each sample in the time dimension.

int harp_product_bin_spatial(harp_product *product, long num_time_bins, long num_time_elements, long *time_bin_index, long num_latitude_edges, double *latitude_edges, long num_longitude_edges, double *longitude_edges)

Bin the product’s variables into a spatial grid. This will bin all variables with a time dimension into a three dimensional time x latitude x longitude grid. Each time sample will first be allocated to a time bin defined by time_bin_index (similar to harp_product_bin). Then within that time bin the sample will be allocated to the appropriate cell(s) in the latitude/longitude grid as defined by the latitude_edges and longitude_edges variables.

The lat/lon grid will be a fixed time-independent grid and will have ‘num_latitude_edges-1’ latitudes and ‘num_longitude_edges-1’ longitudes. The latitude_edges and longitude_edges arrays provide the boundaries of the grid cells in degrees and need to be provided in a strict ascending order. The latitude edge values need to be between -90 and 90 and for the longitude edge values the constraint is that the difference between the last and first edge should be <= 360.

If the product has latitude_bounds {time,independent} and longitude_bounds {time,independent} variables then an area binning is performed. This means that each sample will be allocated to each lat/lon grid cell based on the amount of overlap. This overlap calculation will treat lines between points as straight lines within the carthesian plane (i.e. using a Plate Carree projection, and not using great circle arcs between points on a sphere).

If the product doesn’t have lat/lon bounds per sample, it should have latitude {time} and longitude {time} variables. The binning onto the lat/lon grid will then be a point binning. This means that each sample is allocated to only one grid cell based on its lat/lon coordinate. To achieve a unique assignment, for each cell the lower edge will be considered inclusive and the upper edge exclusive (except for the last cell (when there is no wrap-around)).

The resulting value for each time/lat/lon cell will be the average of all values for that cell. This will be a weighted average in case an area binning is performed and a straight average for point binning. Variables with multiple dimensions will have all elements in its sub dimensions averaged on an element by element basis (i.e. sub dimensions will be retained).

Variables that have a time dimension but no unit (or using a string data type) will be removed. Any existing count or weight variables will also be removed.

For uncertainty variables the first order propagation rules are used (assuming full correlation).

All variables that are binned are converted to a double data type. Cells that have no samples will end up with a NaN value.

A ‘count’ variable will be added to the product that will contain the number of samples per time bin. In addition, a ‘weight’ variable will be added that will contain the sum of weights for the contribution to each cell. If a variable contained NaN values then a variable specific weight variable will be created with only the sum of weights for the non-NaN entries.

For angle variables a variable-specific weight variable will be created that contains the magnitude of the sum of the unit vectors that was used to calculate the angle average.

Axis variables for the time dimension such as datetime, datetime_length, datetime_start, and datetime_stop will only be binned in the time dimension (and will not gain a latitude or longitude dimension).

Return

  • 0, Success.

  • -1, Error occurred (check harp_errno).

Parameters

  • num_longitude_edges: Number of edges for the longitude grid (number of longitude columns = num_longitude_edges - 1)

  • longitude_edges: longitude grid edge vales

int harp_product_get_derived_variable(const harp_product *product, const char *name, const harp_data_type *data_type, const char *unit, int num_dimensions, const harp_dimension_type *dimension_type, harp_variable **variable)

Retrieve a new variable based on the set of automatic conversions that are supported by HARP.

If the product already contained a variable with the given name, you will get a copy of that variable (and converted to the specified data type and unit). Otherwise the function will try to create a new variable based on the data found in the product or on available auxiliary data (e.g. built-in climatology). The caller of this function will be responsible for the memory management of the returned variable.

Note

setting unit to NULL returns a variable in the original unit

Note

Create a derived variable and add it to the product.

If a similar named variable with the right dimensions was already in the product then that variable will be modified to match the given unit (and in case unit is NULL, then the function will just leave the product unmodified). Otherwise the function will call harp_product_get_derived_variable() and add the new variable using harp_product_add_variable() (removing any existing variable with the same name, but different dimensions)

int harp_product_flatten_dimension(harp_product *product, harp_dimension_type dimension_type)

Collapse a given dimension into the time dimension

Flattening a product for a certain dimension collapses the dimension into the time dimension (i.e. the time dimension and the provided dimension are flattened together). For instance, if a product contains a variable with [num_time,num_longitude,num_latitudes,num_vertical] as dimensions, then flattening for the vertical dimension will result in a variable with [num_time*num_vertical,num_longitudes,num_latitudes] as dimensions.

The end result of this function is that the time dimension will have grown by a factor equal to the length of the given dimension type and that none of the variables in the product will depend on the given dimension type anymore.

Independent dimensions and the time dimension cannot be flattened. In the special case that the length of the flattened dimension equals 1, the dimension is just removed for all variables.

If the dimension length does not equal 1 then the following applies:

  • any variables that depend more than once on the given dimension type will be removed from the product,

  • the index and collocation_index variables will be removed if present, and

  • variables that had the given dimension type but were time independent are first made time dependent

Return

  • 0, Success.

  • -1, Error occurred (check harp_errno).

Parameters
  • product: HARP product.

  • dimension_type: Dimension to use for the flattening.

int harp_product_sort(harp_product *product, int num_variables, const char **variable_name)

Reorder a dimension for all variables in a product such that the variables with the given names ends up sorted.

Variables for the provided variable_name list should exist in the product and the variables should be one dimensional variables, all using the same dimension. The dimension that will be reordered is this single dimension of the referenced variables.

Only up to eight variables can be used for sorting.

Return

  • 0, Success.

  • -1, Error occurred (check harp_errno).

Parameters
  • product: HARP product

  • num_variables: Number of variables to use for sorting (1 <= num_variables <= 8)

  • variable_name: Names of the variables to use for sorting

int harp_product_execute_operations(harp_product *product, const char *operations)

Execute one or more operations on a product.

if one of the operations results in an empty product then the function will immediately return with the empty product (and return code 0) and will not execute any of the remaining actions anymore.

Return

  • 0, Success.

  • -1, Error occurred (check harp_errno).

Parameters
  • product: Product that the operations should be executed on.

  • operations: Operations to execute; should be specified as a semi-colon separated string of operations.

int harp_product_rebin_with_axis_bounds_variable(harp_product *product, harp_variable *target_bounds)

Rebin all variables in the product to a specified interval grid. The target bounds variable should be an axis bounds variable containing the interval edges (bins) of the target grid (as ‘double’ values). It should be a two-dimensional variable (for a time independent grid) or a three-dimensional variable (for a time dependent grid). The last dimension should be an independent dimension of length 2 (for the lower/upper bound of each interval). The dimension to use for regridding is based on the type of the second to last dimenion of the target grid variable. This function cannot be used to rebin an independent dimension or rebin the time dimension.

For each variable in the product, a dimension-specific rule based on the variable name will determine how to rebin the variable. For most variables the result will be the interval weighted average of all values overlapping the target interval. Variables that represent an integrated quantity for the rebinned dimension will use an interval weighted sum. For uncertainty variables the first order propagation rules are used (assuming full correlation).

Variables that depend on the rebinned dimenion but have no unit (or use a string data type) will be removed. Any existing count or weight variables will also be removed.

All variables that are rebinned are converted to a double data type. Bins that have no overlapping source boundaries will end up with a NaN value.

Return

  • 0, Success.

  • -1, Error occurred (check harp_errno).

Parameters
  • product: Product to rebin.

  • target_bounds: Target grid boundaries variable.

int harp_product_regrid_with_axis_variable(harp_product *product, harp_variable *target_grid, harp_variable *target_bounds)

Resample all variables in the product against a specified grid. The target grid variable should be an axis variable containing the target grid (as ‘double’ values). It should be a one-dimensional variable (for a time independent grid or when regridding in the time dimension) or a two-dimensional variable (for a time dependent grid when not regridding in the time dimension). The dimension to use for regridding is based on the type of the last dimenion of the target grid variable. This function cannot be used to regrid an independent dimension.

If the target grid variable is two dimensional then its time dimension should match that of the product.

For each variable in the product a dimension-specific rule based on the variable name will determine how to regrid the variable (point/interval interpolation). If interval interpolation is needed for one of the variables then target boundaries are needed. These can be provided using the optional target_bounds parameter. If this parameter is not provided, the boundaries will be calculated automatically from the target grid (by inter/extrapolating intervals from mid-points).

The source grid (and bounds) are determined by performing a variable derivation on the product (using the variable name of the target_grid variable).

Return

  • 0, Success.

  • -1, Error occurred (check harp_errno).

Parameters
  • product: Product to resample.

  • target_grid: Target grid variable.

  • target_bounds: Target grid boundaries variable (optional).

int harp_product_regrid_with_collocated_product(harp_product *product, harp_dimension_type dimension_type, const char *axis_name, const char *axis_unit, const harp_product *collocated_product)

Regrid the product’s variables to the target grid of the collocated product.

This function cannot be used to regrid the time dimension (or an independent dimension).

Both the product and the collocated product need to have collocation_index variables. These collocation indices will be used to determine the matching pairs. For each collocation_index value in product there needs to be a matching value in the collocation_index variable of collocated_product (but the reverse does not have to be true).

Return

  • 0, Success.

  • -1, Error occurred (check harp_errno).

  • dimension_type: Type of dimension for each of the dimensions of the variable that should be created.

  • vertical_axis: The name of the variable to use as a vertical axis (pressure/altitude/etc).

  • vertical_unit: The unit in which the vertical_axis will be brought for the regridding.

  • collocation_result: The collocation result used to find matching variables. The collocation result is assumed to have the appropriate metadata available for all matches (dataset b).

  • variable: Pointer to the C variable where the derived HARP variable will be stored.

int harp_import(const char *filename, const char *operations, const char *options, harp_product **product)

Import a product from a file.

This will first try to import the file as an HDF4, HDF5, or netCDF file that complies to the HARP Data Format. If the file is not stored using the HARP format then it will try to import it using one of the available ingestion modules. The options parameter is optional (can be NULL) and describes the ingestion options. The parameter is only applicable if the file is not already using the HARP format and needs to be converted using one of the ingestion modules. The operations parameter is optional (can be NULL) and provides the list of operations that will be performed as part of the import. Some operations, such as filters, can already be performed as part of an import and this may thus be faster than using a harp_product_execute_operations() after a full import of the product.

Return

  • 0, Success.

  • -1, Error occurred (check harp_errno).

Parameters
  • [in] filename: Path to the file that is to be imported.

  • [in] operations: string (optional) containing actions to apply as part of the import; should be specified as a semi-colon separated string of operations.

  • [in] options: Ingestion module specific options (optional); should be specified as a semi-colon separated string of key=value pair; only used if the file is not in HARP format.

  • [out] product: Pointer to a location where a pointer to the ingested product will be stored.

int harp_import_test(const char *filename, int (*print)(const char*, ...))

Test import of a product.

If the product is a HARP product then verify that the product is a HARP compliant netCDF/HDF4/HDF5 product. Otherwise, try to import the product using an applicable ingestion module and test the ingestion for all possible ingestion options. Results are printed using the provided print function. The print function parameter should be a function that resembles printf().

Return

  • 0, Success.

  • 1, Import failed (error is already printed, harp_errno should be ignored).

  • -1, Error occurred (check harp_errno).

Parameters
  • [in] filename: Filename of the product to import.

  • [in] print: Reference to a printf compatible function.

int harp_import_product_metadata(const char *filename, const char *options, harp_product_metadata **new_metadata)

Retrieve global attributes from a product file.

This function retrieves the product metadata without performing a full import.

Return

  • 0, Success.

  • -1, Error occurred (check harp_errno).

Parameters
  • filename: Path to the file for which to retrieve global attributes.

  • options: Ingestion module specific options (optional); should be specified as a semi-colon separated string of key=value pair; only used if the file is not in HARP format.

  • new_metadata: Pointer to the variable where the metadata should be stored.

int harp_export(const char *filename, const char *export_format, const harp_product *product)

Export HARP product to a file.

Export product to an HDF4, HDF5, or netCDF file that complies to the HARP Data Format.

Return

  • 0, Success.

  • -1, Error occurred (check harp_errno).

Parameters
  • filename: Path to the file to which the product is to be exported.

  • export_format: Either “hdf4”, “hdf5”, or “netcdf”.

  • product: Product that should be exported to file.
