Zwally Color Tables
The color tables shown below are the current version of color tables
that were originally developed for the Antarctic Sea Ice Atlas
(Zwally et. al, 1983
). These color tables are the ones that are
used by the Ice Altimetry Group at Goddard Space Flight Center.
The difference color table was designed for use with data that
have both negative and positive values (such as dM/dt), while the
forward color table is used for data that are entirely positive
(such as standard deviations).
