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 www.jmlilly.net. [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). See also TRANSMAX, TRANSMAXDIST, ISOMAX, MAXPROPS. 'max2eddy --t' runs a test. Usage: [A,R,V,Ro]=max2eddy(dx,lat,C,rho); __________________________________________________________________ This is part of JLAB --- type 'help jlab' for more information (C) 2019 J.M.
