Hi all,

I have a collection of Argo profiles, which as probably all of you know are collections of temperature and salinity measurements over depth at particular latitude/longitude points.

I’ve been using xhistogram to calculate, for example, mean surface temperatures over a selected lat/lon grid. This works really well, and I’m glad to have this tool.

However, some of my values are discrete (e.g. integer labels). I’d like to calculate quantities like the median and the mode over these discrete values. Is it possible to group my profiles based on which lat/lon bin they belong to, with the intention of calculating median and mode over those groups?

Apologies if I’ve missed something obvious. I’ve spent some time looking at the docs and experimenting, but I haven’t found a solution yet. Thanks in advance for any help or clarification you can provide.
