This workshop is focused on data analysis techniques for datasets related to earth sciences, remote sensing, & geographical information science. A variety of traditional and modern quantitative mathematical / statistical methods for data analysis will be discussed and applied, such as confidence intervals for statistical estimates, statistical hypothesis testing, correlation and regression, time-series analysis through Fourier transforms, auto-spectra and cross-spectra, plotting and analyzing directional data, data filtering methods, PCA, and introductory image processing in MATLAB. The workshop is based on extensive hands-on use of MATLAB as a programming and data analysis tool, and therefore requires previous basic-level expertise over MATLAB or at least another programming language.
