R and Python for Oceanographers: A Practical Guide with Applications describes the uses of scientific Python packages and R in oceanographic data analysis, including both script codes and graphic outputs. Each chapter begins with theoretical background that is followed by step-by-step examples of software applications, including scripts, graphics, tables and practical exercises for better understanding of the subject. Examples include frequently used data analysis approaches in physical and chemical oceanography, but also contain topics on data import/export and GIS mapping. The examples seen in book provide uses of the latest versions of Python and R libraries.
- Presents much needed oceanographic data analysis approaches to chemical and physical oceanography
- Includes examples with software applications (based on Python and R), including free software for the analysis of oceanographic data
- Provides guidance on how to get started, along with guidance on example code and output
Hakan Alyuruk was graduated from the Department of Chemistry (Dokuz Eylül University) with B.Sc. degree in 2010. He received his M.Sc. degree in 2012 from the Graduate School of Natural and Applied Sciences, Dokuz Eylül University. His M.Sc. thesis was related to antifouling and eco-friendly biocides. He is currently pursuing his Ph.D. at the Institute of Marine Sciences and Technology, Dokuz Eylül University as a research assistant. His doctoral studies center on characterization and determination of dissolved organic matter in seawater samples. His current research interests and future projects are mainly based on the in-depth chemical analyses and biogeochemical cycles of organic matter in the water column.
Murat Gunduz earned a doctorate of philosophy in physical oceanography from Institute of Marine Sciences, Middle East Technical University. After Ph.D., Dr. Gunduz worked as a postodoctoral research associate at COAPS, USA. Dr. Gunduz`s work has encompassed many areas of ocean modelling and climate change. He developed circulation models for the Adriatic, Caspian and Black Seas. He is also interested in the effects of global tele-connection patterns on the air-sea fluxes over the seas. Dr. Gunduz has experience on analysis of ocean related remote sensing data. Currently he is a faculty member at Institute of Marine Sciences and Technology, Dokuz Eylül University.
