Can I ask, how you did get these arrays? Did you define these or did come from 
somewhere else?  And why are they in two separate arrays? ...

... In most cases you're better off using a single array to hold both pieces 
of information.

Right, do you actually do anything with the non-maximum values? Are they used 
anywhere in your code, or do you really just want the maximum value for each 
year?

There may be an easy way to solve your problem, but first you need to:

1) explain why you're using 2 arrays
2) state whether the non-maximum values are used at all, if they are being 
used, /how/ are they being used.
