grdcut - Extract a subregion out of a .grd file


       grdcut input_file.grd -Goutput_file.grd -Rwest/east/south/north[r] [ -V
       ] [ -f[i|o]colinfo ]


       grdcut will produce a new output_file.grd file which is a subregion  of
       input_file.grd.       The      subregion      is     specified     with
       -Rwest/east/south/north as in other programs; the specified range  must
       not  exceed  the  range  of input_file.grd. If in doubt, run grdinfo to
       check range. Complementary to grdcut there is grdpaste, which will join
       together two grdfiles along a common edge.

              this is the input .grd format file.

              this is the output .grd format file.

       -R     xmin,  xmax,  ymin, and ymax specify the Region of interest. For
              geographic regions,  these  limits  correspond  to  west,  east,
              south,  and north and you may specify them in decimal degrees or
              in [+-]dd:mm[][W|E|S|N] format. Append r  if  lower  left
              and  upper  right map coordinates are given instead of wesn. The
              two shorthands  -Rg  -Rd  stand  for  global  domain  (0/360  or
              -180/+180  in longitude respectively, with -90/+90 in latitude).
              For calendar time coordinates you may either give relative  time
              (relative  to  the  selected  TIME_EPOCH  and  in  the  selected
              TIME_UNIT; append t to -JX|x), or  absolute  time  of  the  form
              [date]T[clock]  (append  T  to  -JX|x). At least one of date and
              clock must be present; the T is always required. The date string
              must  be  of  the form [-]yyyy[-mm[-dd]] (Gregorian calendar) or
              yyyy[-Www[-d]] (ISO week calendar), while the clock string  must
              be  of  the form hh:mm:ss[.xxx]. The use of delimiters and their
              type and positions must be as indicated  (however,  input/output
              and  plotting formats are flexible).  This defines the subregion
              to be cut out.


       -V     Selects verbose mode, which will send progress reports to stderr
              [Default runs "silently"].

       -f     Special  formatting  of  input  and output columns (time or geo-
              graphical data) Specify i(nput) or  o(utput)  [Default  is  both
              input  and output].  Give one or more columns (or column ranges)
              separated by commas.  Append T (Absolute calendar time), t (time
              relative  to  chosen TIME_EPOCH), x (longitude), y (latitude), g
              (geographic coordinate), or f (floating point) to each column or
              column range item.


       Suppose  you  have  used  surface  to  grid  ship gravity in the region
       between 148E - 162E and 8N - 32N, and you do  not  trust  the  gridding
       near  the  edges, so you want to keep only the area between 150E - 160E
       and 10N - 30N, then:

       grdcut grav_148_162_8_32.grd  -Ggrav_150_160_10_30.grd  -R150/160/10/30
