Mapping Geopotential Height with Principal Component Analysis: A Statistical Approach to Geoscience

Principal Component Analysis (PCA) is a powerful statistical technique used to reduce the dimensionality of high-dimensional data. This technique is widely used in various fields, including geoscience, to analyze large data sets and extract valuable information. One of the applications of PCA in Earth science is the analysis of geopotential height data obtained from atmospheric

Comparing EOFs in T Mode and S Mode for Earth Science Statistics

Empirical Orthogonal Functions (EOFs) are widely used in Earth science for the analysis of large data sets, such as ocean or atmospheric data. EOFs can be computed in two different modes: T mode and S mode. T-mode EOFs are based on the temporal covariance matrix of the data, while S-mode EOFs are based on the
