(by Enrico Tomelleri) gallery 027 precip Graphical representation of the correlation matrix of 13 highly correlated parameters. In the lower left triangle density estimates of the marginal bivariate distributions are shown (estimated with KDE). In the upper right triangle the linear correlation coefficients are shown. On the diagonal the univariate marginal distributions are shown. Compare also with previous picture. (By Maarten Braakhekke) Sample of 3 highly correlated parameters obtained with MCMC. The isolines on the axis planes and 3D surfaces indicate equal probability density of the marginal bivariate distributions. They have been derived with kernel density estimation. Compare with next figure and find the three corresponding bivariate distributions.

This isopleth diagramm is a visualisation of a whole year of half-hourly net ecosystem carbon exchange, where time of the day is on the x-axis, time of the year on the y-axis and colours code the flux quantity. It is called fingerprint, since each ecosystem usally exhibits very specific patterns. For the Mediterranean ecosystems a drop a activities during the summer period is charracteristic.
