[IDV #OMA-852870]: How to subtract off a mean profile or standard atmosphere profile?

> Hello IDV folks.
> For fields like T or theta or geopotential, I wish I could remove a reference 
> profile
> T(p) to subtract off the huge vertical gradient, so that horizontal gradients
> (which are so crucial for dynamics) can be discerned better in cross sections.
> Is there a way to subtract a zonal mean, or the global mean, or even a
> standard atmosphere, from every column in a 3D grid?
> I can't find anything useful in here.

     We do have some examples in the workshop document:


I am not fully understanding your requirement, but this may help.

> I thought about subtracting the initial TIME using 
> differenceFromBaseTime(field),
> but this introduces a lot of spatial structure from the initial spatial 
> fields,
> obscuring the structure of the time being analyzed.
> Thanks for any suggestions.
> And Merry Christmas!
