Written for students and researchers, this book integrates data analysis and numerical modeling in a single, coherent framework, allowing students to understand the natural flow from measurement to scientific understanding. The book translates theory into practical, step-by-step example code in MATLAB, allowing students to apply what they learn by giving them hands-on computer experience. Topics include measurement theory, probability distributions, error propagation and analysis, and 3D general circulation models.
An introduction to MATLAB is included, and MATLAB is used to solve many application examples. In addition, a supplemental set of MATLAB code files is available for download.
