Deformed polynomials in objective analysis of meteorological fields

  • A. Albino de Souza


An attempt is made to use polynomials, deformed by appropriate functions to analyse sparse meteorological data avoiding the misbehaviour of polynomials when data is not abundant. The method is used in restricting conditions when meteorological data is sparse and computer capability limited.
