Product Description


A. Plueddemann, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Woods Hole, MA, USA
...this is an excellent, practical text on data analysis, with minor improvements over the first edition.
Oceanography, Vol. 14, No. 4
P. Myers, University of Alberta, Canada
...The book is well laid out, with the content easy to find and access. The statistical presentation, while mathematical, is clear and straightforward, without unnecessary complexity. ...I think this is an excellent book on the topic and it would be an ideal textbook for a graduate level course on geophysical data analysis. I could also see the book becoming a well referred to reference for researchers working with oceanographic data, whether from actual observations or from the output of numerical models.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just in time ! 5 April 2000
By C Domingues, Phys. Oceanog. student - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
We have no similar books in Physical Oceanography. It puts together the description of many useful techniques (including the modern ones) and it also considers pratical aspects of data collection and analysis. The text is easy to follow. The figures are very clear. Useful references are cited. Other geophysical areas can also benefit from it. Do I need to say something else !

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended 10 Nov. 2000
By Firochromis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
In Data Analysis Methods in Physical Oceanography, Emery and Thomson have drawn together a broad range of information on data analysis methods in a single volume. It is an excellent book for the experienced researcher as well as upper level undergraduates and graduate students. It could either serve as a textbook or as a reference handbook. The focus of the book is on application of methods and not just theoretical description. The material is presented in the same fashion that data is approached, from collection to analysis. Particularly useful is that each chapter provides background for the topics presented; setting a context for understanding the material.
The first chapter reviews the basics of statistical sampling and how various oceanographic data elements are collected. It describes in detail the various methods used for collection and their inherent strengths and weakness. The second chapter moves from collecting the data to processing and data presentation; including calibration, interpolation and a variety of presentation formats. The third chapter presents the standard statistical methods and procedures for error handling. The last two chapters cover the range of methods used for spatial and time series analysis of data. This includes not only long established methods but more recent methodologies, such as wavelet transforms, as well.
A bibliography and set of appendices complement the text, making the book an all encompassing reference work. The authors have created an extensive bibliography that enables readers to follow up with more specific readings. The appendices include units in physical oceanography, a glossary of statistical terms, statistical tables, and non-uniform numbers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great reference for students and practicing professionals in oceanography 3 Jan. 2007
By Marcos M. Sastre - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a must have for all field oceanographers. The material is well organized and clearly presented. Excellent companion for intro data analysis and observational physical oceanography texts.
