Numerical Methods in Environmental Data Analysis introduces environmental scientists to the numerical methods available to help answer research questions through data analysis. One challenge in data analysis is misrepresentation of datasets that are relevant directly or indirectly to the research. This book illustrates new ways of screening dataset or images for maximum utilization, introducing environmental modeling, numerical methods, and computations techniques in data analysis. Throughout the book, the author includes case studies that provide guidance on how to translate research questions into appropriate models.

Individuals working with data sets or images generated from environmental monitoring centers or satellites will find this book to be a concise guide for analyzing and interpreting their data.

Key Features

  • Bridges the theoretical underpinnings of modeling to research
  • Illustrates the computational resolution of environmental issues alongside the use of open source software
  • Provides information on the use of analogue versus digital data treatment processes


Research students and professionals in environmental science. Research students and professionals in civil and chemical engineering, environmental chemistry, atmospheric physics, space physics, environmental biology, and renewable energy
