Eady growth rate¶
This recipe computes the maximum Eady Growth Rate and performs the annual and seasonal means, storing the results for each dataset. For the seasonal means, the results are plotted over the North-Atlantic region for the selected pressure levels.

eady_growth_rate.py: Computes and stores the eady growth rate. Plots can be produced for the seasonal mean over the North Atlantic region.
User settings in recipe¶
Required settings for script
time_statistic: Set to ‘annual’ to compute the annual mean. Set to ‘seasonal’ to compute the seasonal mean.
Optional settings for script
plot_levels: list of pressure levels to be plotted for the seasonal mean. If not specified, all levels will be plotted.
