Diagnostics of stratospheric dynamics and chemistry
This recipe reproduces the figures of Eyring et al. (2006) The following plots are reproduced:
Vertical profile climatological mean bias of climatological mean for selected seasons and latitudinal region.
Vertical and latitudinal profile of climatological mean for selected seasons this figure and setting is valid for figure 5 (CH4) figure 6 (H2O) figure 11 (HCL) figure 13 (tro3).
Total ozone anomalies at different latitudinal band and seasons.

Required settings for script
latmin: array of float, min lat where variable is averaged, i.e. [60., 60., -90., -90. ]
latmax: array of float,and max lat where variable is averaged, i.e. [90., 90., -60., -60. ]
season: array of string., season when variable is averaged, i.e. [“DJF”, “MAM”, “JJA”, “SON”]
XMin: array of float, min limit X axis [-30., -30., -30., -30.]

Optional settings for script
start_year: int, year when start the climatology calculation  (default max among the models start year).
end_year:int, year when end the climatology calculation  (default min among the models end year).
multimean: bool, calculate multi-model mean, (i.e. False/True) (default False).
Required settings for variables
reference_dataset: name of the reference model or observation for regridding and bias calculation (e.g. ERA-Interim”).
