Initial Request
----------------------------------------------------------------
Respected Sir/Madam,
I wish to use wavelet stat tool for verification.
I am using tile_dim=64
so NSCALE is 6
now according to my understanding, ISCALE 0 to 5 (i.e. n=0 to n-1) is for
mother wavelet component and ISCALE = 6 is for father wavelet component
(domain mean), then ISCALE=7 stands for what ? There are in total 8
categories of ISCALE (i.e. 0 to 7) are appearing on line type ___isc.txt .
Kindly explain.
Thanks and Regards

Mansi,
I ran a test case of Wavelet-Stat using a tile dimension of 64 (which
is 2 to the 6th power), and I attached some images of the output.
Also below, I've listed an excerpt from section 7.2.1 of the MET
User's Guide:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
The binary forecast and observation fields obtained from the
thresholding are then decomposed into the sum of components on
different scales, by using a 2D Haar wavelet filter (Fig 7.2). Note
that the
scale components are fields, and their sum adds up to the original
binary field. For a forecast defined over square domain of 2^n grid-
points, the scale components are n+1: n mother wavelet
components + the largest father wavelet (or scale-function) component.
The n mother wavelet components have resolution equal to 1, 2, 4, ...
2^(n-1) grid-points. The largest father wavelet component
is a constant field over the 2^n grid-point domain with value equal to
the field mean.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
In the case of 64 = 2^6, we have 6 mother wavelet components with
resolutions equal to 2^0 = 1, 2^1 = 2, 2^2 = 4, 2^3 = 8, 2^4 = 16, and
2^5 = 32 grid points. And we have the largest father wavelet
which is constant over the 2^6 = 64 grid-point domain. So in the
attached output images, you should see pictures for the raw field, the
thresholded binary field, 6 mother wavelets, and one father
wavelet.
In the process of looking at this, I do see that our documentation
says "2^n x 2^n" in a few places when it should just say "2^n".
Perhaps that's a source of confusion. I'll make sure we correct
that for the next release.
Hopefully, that answers your question. If there's still some
confusion, please let us know.
Thanks,
John Halley Gotway

Mansi,
Please disregard my comment about the documentation issue - where it
says 2^n x 2^n in section 7.2.1 of the documentation is correct. I
was just confusing myself!
Thanks,
John

Respected Sir,
Many thanks for the reply and explanation.
Perhaps I have misunderstood ISCALE=0 as 1st mother wavelet component
,which actually stands for thresholded binary field.
Thanks and regards
Mansi
