Scattering Data to See Correlations

The most popular data visualizations in oceanography are probably timeseries plots and maps.  But I suspect a strong third is the scatterplot. While a timeseries plot can show how a variable changes in time, and maps can show variation…

Air and Sea Temperatures

I love creating data visualizations. I always feel like I’m on an adventure when I take some data, visualize it in a number of different ways, and try to make sense of what secrets are hidden inside. Often times you have a good idea…
