View Full Version : Comparing current direction and strength with other parameters

20th December 2005, 01:40 PM
Can anybody tell me Ė how can I compare current direction and strength with some other parameters (temperature, backscatter signal). Actually I want to find correlations, but canít work with degrees. So, maybe there are some methods that allow me to do such kind of correlation?

This is an old post and probably you have found a way to correlate the parameters, but what do u mean "can't work with degrees"?

Did you try cross correlation?

looking forward for ur answer,

yeh, i think he must have done with it already.

My feelings is that he was trying to make comparisons on surface plots of temperature, current speed/direction as well as backscatter signal based on scales rather than cross correlation. This can be easily done in matlab.

If you didnt do it, let me know the type of datasets you use, model, satellite or in situ and whether they're of the same time series.
