This second edition of the brilliantly comprehensive work introduces methods of data analysis in geosciences using MATLAB.

The fully revised and updated edition includes new subchapters on windowed Blackman-Tukey, Lomb-Scargle and Wavelet powerspectral analysis, statistical analysis of point distributions and digital elevation models, as well as a full new chapter on the statistical analysis of directional data.

The text includes a brief description of each method and numerous examples demonstrating how MATLAB can be used on data sets from earth sciences.

Including exercises and fully worked-out solutions as well as many detailed illustrations, the book is highly relevant in a massive variety of geosciences that employ MATLAB, and includes digital versions of MATLAB recipes on a CD-ROM.

It has been written by Martin Trauth, who for more than ten years has taught various courses on data analysis in earth sciences at the University of Potsdam as well as other European universities.
