When we generate spatial analysis plots and compare two models’ results using AMET, not every station data is plotted on both plots. But rather, based on my evaluation of the source code, if the difference between the observation and model is greater than the error threshold (which looks like +/- 3 degree for temperature, +/- 3 g/kg for mixing ratio), that station is not plotted on the graph. Is there a way to plot “all” data points, regardless of the difference between the observation and model data on the graph, so we can see larger variations beyond the threshold level? Can we choose the threshold levels in the “run_spatial_surface.csh” script? The threshold level in that script is:
------------ begin cut ---------------------
And threshold of number of data points at a
single obs site, below which a site’s statistics are NA.
This excludes sites with limited obs.
24NDAYS0.5 would only do sites with 50% of data over
number of days
setenv THRESHOLD 6
----------- end cut ------------
refers to total number of days. Can we use this parameter to control plotting all data points, or do we need additional parameters?
Thank you for your response.
