Synopses & Reviews
This unique book introduces earth scientists to MATLAB and its use for displaying and analyzing typical data sets encountered in geology, geophysics, or geography. Includes many MATLAB scripts to implement displays of graph types rarely provided by spreadsheets or presentation graphics programs. These include triangular diagrams, rose diagrams, stereographic projections, histograms with fitted normal curves, cumulative curves (plotted on probability paper), trend surface and residual contour plots, semivariograms, and divider plots for the determination of fractal dimension. Appropriate for those interested in Data Analysis found in geology, geography, or geographics.
