The subject of wavelet and fractal analyses is fast developing and has drawn a great deal of attention of scientists in varied disciplines of science and engineering. The wavelet transformation is a localized transformation of signals in space-time and time-frequency domains. This property can be effectively utilized to extract information from signals that is not possible with the conventional signal processing tools. Over the past decade, wavelets, multiresolution and multifractal analyses have been formalized into a thorough mathematical framework and have found a variety of applications with significant impact in the analyses of several geophysical processes such as geomagnetism, atmospheric turbulence, space-time rainfall, ocean wind waves, fluid dynamics, seafloor bathymetry, well-logging and climate change studies among others. It is likely that there will be a variety of applications of wavelets and fractals in geophysics in the years to come.
This workshop aims to create a platform to discuss the developments in wavelet-based and fractal-based data analysis techniques and their applications in various processes of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric sciences. Papers related to but not limited to the following themes are welcome.
