Subtract elements greater than a threshold?

5 views (last 30 days)
I have a 2048x10000 double precision dataset. Most values range from 0 to ~5000, but there are scattered values exceeding 1,000,000. After reading the manual for the instrument, I found that for numbers greater than 524287 (2^19 - 1) you're supposed to substract 1048576 (2^20). I had thought to index the data (ind = (test > 524287)) and then subtract the values from those indexed elements but have been unable to make it happen, often receiving the error: "Unable to perform assignment because the left and right sides have a different number of elements."

mask = YourArray > 2^19 - 1;
YourArray(mask) = YourArray(mask) - 2^20;
