Another way would be m = ma.masked_where(a>0.8,a)

Ohoh. What version of numpy are you using ? if you don't give an axis
parameter, you should get the median of the flattened array, therefore a
scalar, not an array.
Anyway: you should use ma.median for masked arrays. Else, you're just keeping
the NaNs where they were.
