An analysis task for plotting histograms of 2-d variables of climatologies in ocean regions.
Component and Tags:
component: ocean tags: climatology, histogram, regions, publicObs
The following configuration options are available for this task:
[oceanHistogram] ## options related to plotting histograms of climatologies of 2-d ocean ## variables # list of variables to plot variableList =  # list of observations to compare against obsList = ['AVISO'] # list of ocean variables by which to weight variables in variable list weightList =  # list of regions to plot from the region list in [regions] below regionGroups = ['Ocean Basins'] # list of region names within the region group listed above regionNames =  # Seasons to conduct analysis over # Note: start and end year will be inherited from climatology section seasons = ['ANN'] # Number of histogram bins bins = 40
A list of groups of regions, each of which will get its own gallery on
the resulting analysis web page. See Region Groups for
more information on the available region groups. By default,
the only region group is
regionNames can be set to
['all'] to plot all of the
regions in the geojson file. In the case of
Antarctic Regions, these
["Southern Ocean", "Southern Ocean 60S", "Eastern Weddell Sea Shelf", "Eastern Weddell Sea Deep", "Western Weddell Sea Shelf", "Western Weddell Sea Deep", "Weddell Sea Shelf", "Weddell Sea Deep", "Bellingshausen Sea Shelf", "Bellingshausen Sea Deep", "Amundsen Sea Shelf", "Amundsen Sea Deep", "Eastern Ross Sea Shelf", "Eastern Ross Sea Deep", "Western Ross Sea Shelf", "Western Ross Sea Deep", "East Antarctic Seas Shelf", "East Antarctic Seas Deep"]
Ocean Basins, they are:
["Atlantic_Basin", "Pacific_Basin", "Indian_Basin", "Arctic_Basin", "Southern_Ocean_Basin", "Mediterranean_Basin", "Global Ocean", "Global Ocean 65N to 65S", "Global Ocean 15S to 15N"]
variableList option determines the variables to plot. Currently, only
2-d variables are supported but we envision extending to 3-d variables in the
near future. The variables are to be listed according to their registry names, with
timeMontly_avg_ prepended in the code.
obsList option contains a list of the names of observational data sets.
Currently, “AVISO” is the only data set available, but we anticipate adding
several additional data sets in the near future.
weightList option determines the variables to normalize by in plotting
the histogram. This is an optional feature. If used,
weightList should be
of the same length as
variableList. We currently only support for 2-d
variables that are the same size as their corresponding variables in
variableList and that are present in the restart file. For example, we use
areaCell to weight cell-centered variables such as
bins sets the number of bins to include in the histogram.
