How can I calculate the difference (WD_Bias) in two wind directions (in degrees) so that the results range from 180 to 180? Below is what I have so far? Does this seem to do what I want or am I missing something else? I seem to be getting sort of funny results. {wind direction: 0 degrees is coming from the North, 90 deg is coming from the East, 180 deg is coming from the south, 270 is coming from the West} WD_Bias = WD_model  WD_obs WD_Bias[WD_Bias>180.]=360.WD_Bias[WD_Bias>180.] WD_Bias[WD_Bias<180.]=WD_Bias[WD_Bias<180.]+360.
