The PV contour values are fixed on given isentropic surface based on the 38-year climatology (from 1979 to 2016), with calculating the zonal mean PV where the maximum meridional PV gradients exist in each longitude during all winters in Southern Hemisphere (June-July-August).
The "show contours" option was selected and the L*, a*, and b* contour values were entered into the threshold space.
Contour values ranging from 340 to 1470 MJ.mm/ ha.h.year were derived from pluviograph records from 29 stations in Victoria, spanning 346 complete station years.
The contour values are normalized by the value of the variable at the die.
Second, it is important to add extra elements to a tapered wall if contour values such as shear and pressure are important.
The contour plots are presented with axes scaled in coded values, but the contour values are "real".
