             abstract = "The Helmholtz-Hodge decomposition is a very useful instrument for 
                         vector field interpretation because it traditionally distinguishes 
                         conservative (curl-free) components from mass-preserving 
                         (divergence-free) components. In this work, we propose to use the 
                         Helmholtz-Hodge decomposition as a basic tool for the analysis of 
                         an ensemble of 2D vector fields. Given a vector field ensemble 
                         \ε, our approach firstly generates the corresponding 
                         curl-free, divergence-free, and harmonic component ensembles by 
                         using the Natural Helmholtz-Hodge decomposition to each vector 
                         field in \ε. With these ensembles in hand, our proposal not 
                         only quantifies, via a statistical analysis, how much each 
                         component ensemble is point-wisely correlated to the original 
                         vector field ensemble, but also allows to investigate the 
                         uncertainty of curl-free, divergence-free, and harmonic components 
                         separately. We test the proposed method with a synthetic vector 
                         field ensemble and with a simulated vector field ensemble.",
