Project Description: This project report covers the design and implementation of a data analysis interface program for the Conrad Blucher Institute for Surveying and Science (CBI). The program has improved on the existing methods used to analyze data collected by Texas Coastal Ocean Observation Network (TCOON) by allowing a user to easily: 1. Invoke a C program "tcesm" to extract data from an Ingres database. 2. Pass the data to various existing FORTRAN programs "fftlngth" and "specld" to provide statistical analysis. 3. Present the results graphically using several S-plus functions. 4. Save the input and output variables and files. 5. Print the spectrum and the data when needed. This system has proven to be efficient, user friendly, and fast. It has became the foundation for future development.
