The Search for Acceleration, part 4: Mea CulpaJune 30, 2013
The error caused my rise rate calculations to be off by a factor of 12! This was because I failed to account for the monthly increments in the RLR data. This mistake caused large errors on my conclusions, which have now been corrected.
I use National Instruments LabVIEW software for all of my coding. LabVIEW is an advanced graphical programming platform that makes it possible to write sophisticated code in a completely graphical environment. That is, no lines of text as in the more traditional languages like Fortran or C. Instead, various sub-programs (or “sub-VIs” in LabView parlance) can be wired together to create complex programs that would take much longer to write other languages.
The image below shows the mistake I made. Mea Culpa.
