MTM-SVD method in python
This repository contains scripts to apply the MTM-SVD analysis method in python to climate data and model outputs. It is a direct adaptation of the Matlab script developed by M. Correa-Ramirez.
This script was adapted by Mathilde Jutras at McGill University, Canada

A description of the theoretical basis of the MTM-SVD toolbox and some implementation details can be found in: Correa-Ramirez, M. & S. Hormazabal, 2012. "MultiTaper Method-Singular Value Decomposition (MTM-SVD): Variabilidad espacio–frecuencia de las fluctuaciones del nivel del mar en el Pacífico Suroriental", Lat. Am. J. Aquat. Res.
The functions of the Matlab toolbox are based on the MTM-SVD FORTRAN functions developed by Michael Mann and Jeffrey Park (http://holocene.meteo.psu.edu/Mann/tools/MTM-SVD/), and the Matlab toolbox can be found on the same website.
The main script is contained in mtm-svd-python.py, and the required functions can be found in mtm_functions.py.
