comment Does the Nasa video show proof of the biotic pump theory?
@BrianWhite Seeding isn't a binary situation, i.e., no forest != no seeding. There are CCN everywhere, both advected and produced locally, even in semi-arid and arid regions. The point is that forests are also a source of CCN, so they supplement the background levels and can enhance the frequency/intensity of rainfall. The net climate effect is that this could help sustain forest further into continental interiors. Estimating the strength of that enhancement is a perfectly good research topic.

comment Does the Nasa video show proof of the biotic pump theory?
BTW, the biotic pump paper is Makarieva and Gorshkov (2007). It was a mean state, conceptual model that restated old theories in a different language. The ideas of moisture recycling and biogenic CCN were well established, it's their quantification that was (and still is) really difficult to pin down.

Ah, beat me to it! You could also use ax.outline_patch.set_visible(False).

comment Why is my grid offset in this example?
Yep, if it's screen aliasing then bigger images are often better. No idea if that plays well with IPython though.

comment Makefile to adjust a variable to multiple values then create a new directories for them?
Why not just have the program read the variable from a text file or stdin? Compile the executable once and run it for as many different values as you want. Or is the real problem more complicated than the Q suggests?
