Matlab M-Files

Most of the plots and statistical analysis done for this report were created using Matlab software, created by Mathworks (http://www.mathworks.com). Plots were converted to tagged PDF format using Adobe (http://www.adobe.com) Acrobat. The Matlab m-files provide partial documentation of the techniques used to create the analyses and plots in this report. This code was designed to run on Matlab 6.0 with NetCDF installed. Users are encouraged to visit the Web site http://woodshole.
http://woodshole.er.usgs.gov/staffpages/cdenham/public_html/ for more information about the NetCDF format.

Although these programs have been used by the USGS, no warranty, expressed or implied, is made by the USGS or the United States Government as to the accuracy and functioning of the programs and related program material nor shall the fact of distribution constitute any such warranty, and no responsibility is assumed by the USGS in connection therewith.
