Environmental Data Analysis with MatLab is for students and researchers working to analyze real data sets
in the environmental sciences. One only has to consider the global warming
debate to realize how critically important it is to be able to derive clear
conclusions from oftennoisy data drawn from a broad range of sources. This
book teaches the basics of the underlying theory of data analysis, and then
reinforces that knowledge with carefully chosen, realistic scenarios. MatLab, a
commercial data processing environment, is used in these scenarios;
significant content is devoted to teaching how it can be effectively used
in an environmental data analysis setting. The book, though written in a
selfcontained way, is supplemented with data sets and MatLab scripts that can be
used as a data analysis tutorial.
