Histograms and composites. multimodal is always interesting. qualitative distinction! Regimes or modes (literal meaning). Buoy downwelling radiation along Pacific cold tongue as TIWs go by in the ocean.

Figure 3.16 – Width vs. top height of each EO for 16 June 2006 – 31 May 2008. Distribution is weighted by total number of pixels (volume) per EO to emphasize larger EOs. Bin size is 10 pixels (~ km) by 240 m. Width is the horizontal span of the EO.

Nice use of 2-dimensional histograms, and weighted histograms (= composites of multiple fields in each bin)
