    Dear divyadavidt

    For gridded data you can use finite differences schemes. See page 16 from Piolle & Bentamy (2002). They computed wind divergence but it's the same. Positive (divergence), negative (convergence)


    Piolle, J.-F. & Bentamy, A., 2002. Mean Wind Fields (MWF product) - User Manual - Volume 2: QuikSCAT. C2-MUT-W-04-IF, CERSAT, Plouzané. Download from http://cersat.ifremer.fr/content/dow.../mutwqscat.pdf

    Regards,

    José
