Hi again,

Tried the DIRECTION=57.29578*(arctangent(UGRD,VGRD))+180 Could not get it to work.

Entered DIRECTION=57.29578*(ATAN2(UGRD,VGRD))+180

Works OK - where U = 6 and V = 5, result dir= 220 deg

Speed = 8 m/s

Could you check it please.

Thanks

Hi Jeff,

Thanks for that. However (DIRECTION=57.29578*(arctangent(UGRD,VGRD))+180)

Does this formula work in what ever quadrant?

Or does the +180 change to suit V and U values?

i.e

180 if V>=0
0 if U<0 and V<0>0 and V<0
