An analysis task for plotting maps of Arctic sea ice concentration against observations.
Component and Tags:
component: seaIce tags: climatology, horizontalMap, seaIceConc, publicObs
The following configuration options are available for this task:

minimumLatitude determines what the southernmost latitude (in
degrees) included in the plot will be. The option
defines which longitude will be at the bottom of the plot.
By default, plots are produced comparing modeled sea ice concentration against
both observations produced with both the
algorithms. By altering
observationPrefixes, you can select only one
(or none) of these.
vertical = True can be used to plot 3 panels one above another
(resulting in a tall, thin image) rather than next to each other, the default
(resulting in a short, wide image).
The ability to modify observations files pointed to by
provided for debugging purposes and these options
should typically remain unchanged.
