MAX2EDDY is the jWavelet module of jLab.

 MAX2EDDY  Converts transform maxima into oceanic coherent eddy properties.
 
    This function is part of 'element analysis' described in Lilly (2017), 
    "Element analysis: a wavelet-based method for analyzing time-localized
    events in noisy time series", submitted.  Available at www.jmlilly.net.
   
    [A,R,RO]=MAX2EDDY(DX,LAT,C,RHO) converts the wavelet transform maxmima
    properties C and RHO, at latitudes LAT and with alongtrack sample
    intervals of DX, into estimated coherent eddy properties A, R, and Ro.
 
    C and RHO are as output by MAXPROPS.
 
    The real part of A is the *apparent* coherent eddy displacement in 
    centimeters, while R is the apparent eddy radius in kilometers.  The 
    real part of Ro is a Rossby number estimate formed from A and Ro.  
 
    Note that the imaginary parts of A and Ro reflect the magnitude of
    the locally odd, or sin-like, portion of the anomaly.  These will 
    vanish for the noise-free transform of a Gaussian eddy.
 
    The eddy properties are derived assuming a Gaussian form for the eddy.
 
    For details, see Lilly (2017).
    
    See also TRANSMAX, TRANSMAXDIST, ISOMAX, MAXPROPS.
 
    'max2eddy --t' runs a test.
 
    Usage: [A,R,Ro]=max2eddy(dx,lat,C,rho);
