Climate Profiles Explained

The Climate Profiles graph gives the user the opportunity to observe at a glance the distribution of the data in the EPW file for four key variables and their variation between day and night.

The Climate Profiles graph are Violin Plots. They show the probability density of the data at different values, usually smoothed by a kernel density estimator. Wider sections of the violin plot represent a higher probability that members of the population will take on the given value; the skinnier sections represent a lower probability.

On mouse hover, they display various statistical properties of the data:

  • maximum value

  • minimum value

  • mean

  • median

  • 1st quartile

  • 3rd quartile
