MAX2EDDY is the jWavelet module of jLab.

 MAX2EDDY  Converts transform maxima into oceanic coherent eddy properties.
    This function is part of 'element analysis' described in Lilly (2017), 
    "Element analysis: a wavelet-based method for analyzing time-localized
    events in noisy time series", available at
    [A,R,V,RO]=MAX2EDDY(DX,LAT,C,RHO) converts the wavelet transform 
    maxmima properties C and RHO, at latitudes LAT and with alongtrack 
    sample intervals of DX, into estimated eddy properties A, R, V, and Ro.
    C and RHO are as output by MAXPROPS.
    The real part of A is the *apparent* coherent eddy displacement in 
    centimeters, while R is the apparent eddy radius in kilometers.  The 
    real part of V is a velocity estimate formed from A and R, and the 
    real part of Ro is a similarly formed Rossby number estimate.
    Note that the imaginary parts of A, V, and Ro reflect the magnitude of
    the locally odd, or sin-like, portion of the anomaly.  These will 
    vanish for the noise-free transform of a Gaussian eddy.
    The eddy properties are derived assuming a Gaussian form for the eddy.
    For details, see Lilly (2017).
    'max2eddy --t' runs a test.
    Usage: [A,R,V,Ro]=max2eddy(dx,lat,C,rho);
