On 20 November 2021 I will teach a lecture on “How climate influenced the evolution of early humans” for the Association for the Highly Gifted Child and Young People (DGhK Berlin-Brandenburg).
The 5th edition of my textbook MATLAB Recipes for Earth Sciences will soon be available in German, corrected and updated. Continue reading “MATLAB®-Rezepte für die Geowissenschaften”
On 24 September 2021 the University of Potsdam will open virtual lecture halls for 1,250 children aged 8–10 in order to inspire them for the world of science. During the event I will teach a lecture on climate change and human evolution during the Children’s University Potsdam.
Here you find the MATLAB code and data of my paper “Spectral analysis in Quaternary sciences” published in the Elsevier journal Quaternary Science Reviews. Continue reading “MATLAB Code of “Spectral analysis in Quaternary sciences” (Trauth, QSR 2021)”
The Global 30 Arc-Second Elevation Data (GTOPO30) is a 30 arc second (approximately 1 km) global digital elevation data set that contains only elevation data and no bathymetry. MathWorks announced that the gtopo30 function to read the data would be discontinued and that one should use the readgeoraster function instead. Here’s the updated recipe from Chapter 7 of the MRES book (Trauth, 2021). Continue reading “The 30 Arc-Second Elevation Model GTOPO30”
Here you find the MATLAB code and data of our paper “Northern Hemisphere Glaciation, African Climate and Human Evolution” published in the Elsevier journal Quaternary Science Reviews.
The older you get as a scientist, the more you encounter the problem that old files can no longer be opened. This does not affect MATLAB code and data files as much as graphics or text files. In the case of text, it turns out that LibreOffice Word displays files from the 1990s correctly, while Word is unable to open files created by older versions of the same software.
