This book discusses the concept and applications of cyclostationary EOF (CSEOF) analysis developed by the author. The concept of this innovative space-time analysis technique is fully expounded in comparison with the conventional data analysis techniques. Many scientific examples included in the textbook demonstrate the importance and benefit of analyzing space-time evolutions in order to fully understand physical processes in a physical system. Various applications of scientific interests are developed and implemented based on the CSEOF techniques in the book; these applications are new and original. The book contains more than 100 exercise problems, pedagogical as well as research examples, all of which are fully solved in a separate exercise eBook. This is an advanced book on statistical climatology and an excellent self-teaching tool, which is intended for graduate students and researchers in earth sciences and statistics.
In addition to the hard-copy textbook (448 pp.), this book contains 5 DVDs: (1) window version of eBooks for textbook and exercise book (604 pp.), (2) Macintosh version of eBooks for textbook and exercise book, (3) CSEOF package (written in Fortran, Matlab, and IDL), utility programs, and univariate time series analysis package, (4) datasets for exercise problems, and (5) script files for all the exercise problems. Movies play inside the eBooks and can be played in their original sizes on separate windows. The eBook DVDs contain original movies and PDFs. The script files are detailed enough to follow all the exercise problems.
