A variety of software has been developed for classroom instruction, operational use, and for research. A list is provided below. Please email me for more information and availability. Some is open source.
Parallel Coordinates Analytic Toolkit for Multivariate Data Analysis. This uses parallel coordinates visualization with stepwise regression. Patent number US8346682. Information is here and here
Akima, Steffen, PCHIP, and Catmull-Rom splines --- for monotonic data-fitting appropriate for meteorology interpolation
Validating ocean and weather models combining multiple metrics into a ranking system
Classroom exercises for synoptic meteorology, dynamics, tropical meteorology, oceanography, and numerical methods: see my teaching website weatherclasses.com
Enhanced HURDAT2 with hourly data, storm speed, and track direction. HURDAT2 provides historical hurricane track and intensity data. Information on HURDAT2 is here and here.
