Climate Data Toolbox for Matlab
Welcome to the Climate Data Toolbox for Matlab! Here are some tips on getting started with CDT:
For a complete list of CDT functions, datasets, and tutorials, check out the CDT Contents page.
The best and most up-to-date version of CDT can always be found on GitHub or you can install it directly through the Add-Ons menu. That looks like this in the HOME menu:
Click Get Add-Ons, look up Climate Data Toolbox, and follow the prompts to download and install CDT automatically.
Other options You can get a usually-out-of-date latest "Release" of CDT here (about 100 MB) and just double-click on the file to install it:
Just double-click on that file and when the menu pops up, click Install. Installation should take less than a second.
2. Alternatively, if you haven't already downloaded the mltbx file, you can get it via the Add-On button from directly within Matlab.
