% This function computes the mean altitude of n elevation bands
% if the hypsometric curve is given;
% Input:
%   data: the hypsometric curve
%   noband: number of elevation bands
%
% This works for a hypsometric data set with the format
% col 1: percentage of area that lies above the altitude in the 2nd colonne
% col 2: altitude
% first line has to contain 100% and the minimum altitude always exceeded
% e.g.
%100    1100            altitude always exceeded
% 99    1125
% 98    1150
% 97    1175
% 96    1150
% .     .
% .     .
%  0    3789            altitude never exceeded
