The [plot] section of a configuration file contains options that define default properties for all plots produce by MPAS-Analysis:

## options related to plotting that are the defaults across all analysis
## modules

# font size on axes
axisFontSize = 16
# title font properties
titleFontSize = 20
titleFontColor = black
titleFontWeight = normal

# the dots per inch of output figures
dpi = 200

The options for title fint size, color and weight as well as axis font size specify properties of these parts of each plot. Sizes are given in points.

The value of dpi specifies the resolution of the images written out by MPAS-Analysis (in dots per inch). The default produces large images that are appropriate for zooming in substantially and may be sufficient for publication. They are large (but not entirely unmanageable) for the web.
