I can't find my Surfer 15 colormap gradient in Surfer 16. Where did it go?

Certain colormap gradients were renamed or removed between Surfer 15 and Surfer 16. Below is a table of them. If you don't see a specific colormap gradient in the list, this is because it exists with the same name (or nearly the same name, as with BrownBlue v. Brown-Blue) in Surfer 16. The list is ordered as the colormap Presets list was organized in Surfer 15.

If the colormap gradient you want to use was removed, or you just prefer the old list of colormap gradients, see here: How Can I Get My Favorite Old Colormap Back Into Surfer?
