Emboldened by our experiments in El Nio analysis and prediction, people in the Azimuth Code Project have been starting to analyze weather and climate data. A lot of this work is exploratory, with no big conclusions. But it’s still interesting! So, let’s try some blog articles where we present this work.

This one will be about the air pressure on the island of Tahiti and in a city called Darwin in Australia: how they’re correlated, and how each one varies. This article will also be a quick introduction to some basic statistics, as well as ‘continuous wavelet transforms’.

Darwin, Tahiti and El Nios

The El Nio Southern Oscillation is often studied using the air pressure in Darwin, Australia versus the air pressure in Tahiti. When there’s an El Nio, it gets stormy in the eastern Pacific so the air temperatures tend to be lower…
