Hello Everyone,

I need some help to calculate Integrated Water vapor transport (IVT) from
surface to 300hPa.  I am using ERA-Interim data (uwind (u), vwind(v),
specific humidity(q)). I have used the scripts that are published in the
grads user forum, but the results seems wrong (ex. the values are from
40000 kg/ms).

The formula I am using to calculate the IVT is


Integration is from Surface to 300 hPa.
