For my work I am analyzing pressure waves. I am new to this however, and do not know very much. I have attached two plots of the same wave. One plot is a line plot, and the other is a dot plot. For my analysis, I am using MATLAB.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

As can be seen from the two plots, my data is very noisy. There is nothing I can do about this however, so I will have to work with what I am given. I would like to use a filter, a moving average, or perhaps a combination to better understand the data, but I do not know which to use, why one would be better than the other, advantages, disadvantages, etc.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Nate
