Climate science is highly interdisciplinary by nature, so understanding interactions betweenEarth processes inherently warrants the use of analytical software that can operate across the disciplines ofEarth science. Toward this end, we present the Climate Data Toolbox for MATLAB, which contains morethan 100 functions that span the major climate-related disciplines of Earth science. The toolbox enablesstreamlined, entirely scriptable workflows that are intuitive to write and easy to share. Included arefunctions to evaluate uncertainty, perform matrix operations, calculate climate indices, and generatecommon data displays. Documentation is presented pedagogically, with thorough explanations of howeach function works and tutorials showing how the toolbox can be used to replicate results of publishedstudies. As a well-tested, well-documented platform for interdisciplinary collaborations, the Climate DataToolbox for MATLAB aims to reduce time spent writing low-level code, let researchers focus on physicsrather than coding and encourage more efficacious code sharing.
