This second edition is an intensively revised and updated version of the book MATLAB (R) and Design Recipes for Earth Sciences.
It aims to introduce students to the typical course followed by a data analysis project in earth sciences. A project usually
involves searching relevant literature, reviewing and ranking published books and journal articles, extracting relevant information
from the literature in the form of text, data, or graphs, searching and processing the relevant original data using MATLAB,
and compiling and presenting the results as posters, abstracts, and oral presentations using graphics design software. The
text of this book includes numerous examples on the use of internet resources, on the visualization of data with MATLAB, and
on preparing scientific presentations. As with the book MATLAB Recipes for Earth Sciences-4rd Edition (2015), which demonstrates
the use of statistical and numerical methods on earth science data, this book uses state-of-the art software packages, including
MATLAB and the Adobe Creative Suite, to process and present geoscientific information collected during the course of an earth
science project. The book's supplementary electronic material (available online through the publisher's website) includes
color versions of all figures, recipes with all the MATLAB commands featured in the book, the example data, exported MATLAB
graphics, and screenshots of the most important steps involved in processing the graphics.
