Most of the data processing (see Data Processing page), tidal analysis (see Tidal Analysis page), and plots (see Time-Series 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 m-files provide partial documentation of the techniques used
to create the plots in this report. The m-files are not turn-key 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/of2007-1194/html/netcdf.html for more information about the NetCDF format and how it's used in our files.
