Paper Abstract

Though wavelets have been used extensively for image coding, compression,and denoising, they are also gaining popularity in the geophysical sciences as an analysis tool. Capitalizing on the wavelet's relatively tight localization in both the time and frequency domains, the wavelet transform of a data field can yield significant information about the localized frequency content of the underlying process. As an analysis technique, though, standard wavelet transforms suffer from some of the real work constraints that data sets often impose. Primary among these is the fact that the data set is not typically supported on a standard rectangular grid. We investigate the application of a boundary-compensated wavelet transform supported on an arbitrarily-shaped region. Applications to satellite-based altimetry of ocean basins are presented.
