Hi
I am posting in the topic related to the "non-numeric argument to binary
operator" as I got similar problem while running the netcdf code. I have
attached the file with this post. It is a climate data from NOAA site. The code
follows as:
library(survival)
library(RNetCDF)
library(ncdf)
setwd("c:/projects/netcdfcsfiles")
Conn42 = open.ncdf("128.111.220.111.46.15.32.42.nc");
# read the time variable, which measures years, and
# use the length of the vector to estimate the time span
#
timeObj = get.var.ncdf(Conn42,"time");
file42YrRangeDays = trunc(length(timeObj))
# Process each file separately:
# get attributes, read the rhum data cube,
# extract the time series from the cube,
# and rescale the time series vector
#
scaleFact = att.get.ncdf(Conn42,"rhum","scale_factor")
offset = att.get.ncdf(Conn42,"rhum","add_offset")
rhumObj = get.var.ncdf(Conn42,"rhum");
#
# the Relative Humidity data 'cube' has 4 dimensions:
# latitudes (4), longitudes (3), pressure levels (1),
# and time (days - several thousand)
#
rhCube = array(rhumObj,dim = c(4,3,file42YrRangeDays))
rh42Vec = (((rhCube[2,2,1:file42YrRangeDays]) * scaleFact) + offset)
#(Here is the point where I got the error "Error in (rhCube[2, 2,
1:file24YrRangeDays]) * scaleFact : non-numeric argument to binary operator"
I appreciate if anyone can help me out.
Sincerely,
Anil Acharya
