Objective Analysis Software

The derivation of the Objective Analysis Estimation equations

The following is my Objective Analysis code for the analysis of scalar fields. There is both a FORTRAN version and a (rather crude) C version. I have included sample drivers for both and a sample input data set. The code is available shell packaged as a shell archive, objan.sh or as a tar archive, objan.tar

There is a Makefile for building these programs, you may need to change the compiler names and the paths depending upon your setup. (For testing I'd suggest changing the various directories to . -- the current directory).

I also have code for vector fields, and for multi-variate estimation. Contact me for details.

The FORTRAN version is heavily commented, and the C version follows the flow of the FORTRAN version so using the code should not be too difficult. The theory and the algorithm are documented in:
