I am trying to calculate wind speed from the U and V wind components of a
Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) simulation. However, I came to realize that some variables of the model (including wind components) are staggered. This makes it really difficult to analyze the model output as is, since the dimensions of staggered variables differ from those of non-staggered variables .
Does anybody have any hints on how to de-stagger these fields in a netcdf file produced by the WRF model?
