Smartphone Seismometer using MATLAB

The increasing spread of mobile internet devices with built-in accelerometers led to the idea of using them to build up low-cost seismological arrays. This exercises demonstrates how to log, import and display smartphone accelerometer measurements with MATLAB.

MATLAB Recipes for Earth Sciences, 5th Edition

The 5th edition of MATLAB Recipes for Earth Sciences now has a book cover and can already be pre-ordered on the publisher’s webpage. The picture on the top is a 3D display of a filtered SRTM elevation data set of the Baringo area in Kenya, showing fault escarpments and lake basins. The function surfl has been used to generate a shaded-relief map with simulated lighting, contour3 to create white elevation contours and the demcmap colormap from the Mapping Toolbox.
