how could I use subplot function to squeeze 12 existing graphs into 2 pages of 2x3

4 views (last 30 days)
I plotted 12 hourly velocity profiles using the following codes
if true
%
h = 2.5:2:40.5;
for a = date1126+12:date1126+23; % second tidal cycle of the day is selected by observing mag_ts
if and(a>=date1126+16,a<=date1126+22);% flood tide
plot(East_hrAve(:,a),h)
set(gca,'XTick',linspace(0,1.6,9)); % set x min and max and steps
set(gca,'XTickLabel',[0:0.2:1.6]); % set labels
xlim([0 1.6]);
else % ebb tide
plot(East_hrAve(:,a),h)
set(gca,'XTick',linspace(-1.6,0,9)); % set x min and max and steps
set(gca,'XTickLabel',[-1.6:0.2:0]); % set labels
xlim([-1.6 0]);
end
xlabel('Current East Velocity (ms^{-1})');
ylabel('Height above seabed (m)');
end
If the codes above are too complicated, I have simplified them to the ones below:
h = 2.5:2:40.5;
for a = date1204:date1204+12-1;% 1st cycle of the day is selected by observing mag_ts
figure;
plot(East_hrAve(:,a),h);
set(gca,'XTick',linspace(-1,1,11)); % set x min and max and steps
set(gca,'XTickLabel',-1:0.2:1); % set labels
xlim([-1 1]);
xlabel('Current East Velocity (ms^{-1})')
ylabel('Height above seabed (m)')
end
end
I would like to subplot every 6 graphs into a page of 2x3 but am not sure how to do it using subplot(2,3,__). There are 12 graphs above. You may alter my codes to create subplot or you may add a few lines after my codes to rearrange the existing velocity profiles into subplot. Many thanks.

h = 2.5:2:40.5;
i=1; % ADD THIS LINE
figure; % ADD THIS LINE
for a = date1204:date1204+12-1;% 1st cycle of the day is selected by observing mag_ts
if mod(i,7)==0 % ADD THIS LINE
i=1; % ADD THIS LINE
figure; % ADD THIS LINE
end % ADD THIS LINE
subplot(3,2,i) % ADD THIS LINE
i = i+1; % ADD THIS LINE
plot(East_hrAve(:,a),h);
set(gca,'XTick',linspace(-1,1,11)); % set x min and max and steps
set(gca,'XTickLabel',-1:0.2:1); % set labels
xlim([-1 1]);
xlabel('Current East Velocity (ms^{-1})')
ylabel('Height above seabed (m)')
end
