Most of the data processing (see Data Processing page), tidal analysis (see Tidal Analysis page), and plots (see TimeSeries Plots page) completed for this report were created using Matlab
software, created by Mathworks (www.mathworks.com). Plots were converted to tagged PDF format using
Adobe (www.adobe.com) Acrobat.
DISCLAIMER: The Matlab mfiles provide partial documentation of the techniques used
to create the plots in this report. The mfiles are not turnkey programs and
are not supported by their creator or by USGS.
This code was designed
to run on Matlab 2012b v8.0.0. Users are encouraged to look at http://woodshole.er.usgs.gov/pubs/of20071194/html/netcdf.html for more information about the NetCDF format and how it's used in our files.
adcp_curr_ts: Creates plots of the timeseries of vectorized water flow data.
adcp_magdir_ts: Creates plots of the timeseries of water flow data magnitude and direction.
adv_ts: Creates a plot of the timeseries of sensor range to boundary, water flow, and standard deviation of water flow.
pcadp_ts: Creates a plot of the timeseries of sensor range to boundary, water flow, and standard deviation of water flow.
obs_ts: Creates a plot of the timeseries of Optical Backscatter Sensor voltage.
ctd_ts: Creates a plot of the timeseries of temperature and salinity.
abs_ave_ts: Creates a plot of the timeseries of acoustic backscatter.
met_ts: Creates a plot of the timeseries of meteorological data from the USGS buoy, as well as data from two National Data Bouy Center buoys.
waves_ts: Creates plots of the timeseries of wave measurement data.
pressure_ts: Creates multisite plots of pressure measurements.
ttide_adcp_indiv : Perform tidal analysis on individual records of ADCP data.
t_tide: Performs harmonic analysis of a time series (called by ttide_adcp_indiv.m, ttide_adcp_comb.m, ttide_aqdp_indiv.m, ttide_aqdp_comb.m, ttide_argn_indiv.m, and ttide_argn_comb.m; Pawlowicz and others, 2002).
