For each input dataset, an individual plot is created. This diagnostic supports arbitrary variables of arbitrary datasets.

psyplot_kwargs: dict, optional

Optional keyword arguments for the plotting function given by psyplot_func. String arguments can include facets in curly brackets which will be derived from the corresponding dataset, e.g., clabel: '{long_name} [{units}]', title: '{long_name} Climatology of {dataset} ({start_year}-{end_year})'.
