An analysis task for comparison of global maps of sea surface temperature (SST) against observations.
Component and Tags:
component: ocean tags: climatology, horizontalMap, sst, publicObs
The following configuration options are available for this task:
[climatologyMapSST] ## options related to plotting horizontally remapped climatologies of ## sea surface temperature (SST) against reference model results and ## observations # colormap for model/observations colormapNameResult = RdYlBu_r # color indices into colormapName for filled contours colormapIndicesResult = [0, 40, 80, 110, 140, 170, 200, 230, 255] # colormap levels/values for contour boundaries colorbarLevelsResult = [-2, 0, 2, 6, 10, 16, 22, 26, 28, 32] # colormap for differences colormapNameDifference = RdBu_r # color indices into colormapName for filled contours colormapIndicesDifference = [0, 28, 57, 85, 113, 128, 128, 142, 170, 198, 227, 255] # colormap levels/values for contour boundaries colorbarLevelsDifference = [-5, -3, -2, -1, -0.1, 0, 0.1, 1, 2, 3, 5] # Times for comparison times (Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, May, Jun, Jul, Aug, Sep, # Oct, Nov, Dec, JFM, AMJ, JAS, OND, ANN) seasons = ['JFM', 'JAS', 'ANN'] # comparison grid(s) ('latlon', 'antarctic') on which to plot analysis comparisonGrids = ['latlon'] # first and last year of SST observational climatology (preferably one of the # two ranges given below) # values for preindustrial obsStartYear = 1870 obsEndYear = 1900 # alternative values for present day #obsStartYear = 1990 #obsEndYear = 2011
By default, a “preindustrial” climatology is computed for comparison with the
model results. For simulations covering a different time period, the range of
obsEndYear) should be updated.
