Nearly 30 years ago, I began teaching compact courses on data analysis in the earth sciences. Almost 20 years ago, I started thinking about writing textbooks. Now there are five textbooks and many different course formats for you. Here is an overview of the current options! Continue reading “Online Courses in Modern Data Analysis Methods in Earth Sciences with Python and MATLAB”
Soon, the popular book MATLAB Recipes for Earth Sciences (MRES) will be available in a version for Python (PRES). You can then put both books side by side, like a dictionary, MATLAB to Python and back. Continue reading “MATLAB and Python Recipes for Earth Sciences”
Here you find the MATLAB code and data of my paper “TURBO2: A MATLAB simulation to study the effects of bioturbation on paleoceanographic time series” published in the Elsevier journal Computers & Geosciences. Continue reading “MATLAB Code of “TURBO2: A MATLAB simulation to study the effects of bioturbation on paleoceanographic time series” (Trauth, C&G 2013)”
In two earlier posts, I presented templates for a conference poster with dark and white background. Here’s the white template in various formats. Continue reading “Creating Better Scientific Posters, Part 3”
Since I have just finished the PYTHON version of my book MATLAB Recipes for Earth Sciences (Springer 2021), I would like to offer a comparison of the advantages and disadvantages of both programming languages and development environments. Comments, corrections and additions via email are as always welcome! Continue reading “MATLAB vs. PYTHON from a MATLABer’s Perspective”
The popular online course on data analysis in the geosciences will be taught bilingual for the first time, using the two leading programming languages and development environments MATLAB and Python in parallel on 19–23 September 2022. The course is based on the 5th edition of my book MATLAB Recipes for Earth Science (Springer 2021) and on the new book Python Recipes for Earth Sciences (Springer, in press).
The German version of the 5th edition of #MATLAB Recipes for Earth Sciences is out today. Thanks to the subject of SpringerSpektrum for the professional support in the realization of the project.
While I was writing the new book Python Recipes for Earth Sciences, a Python version of my popular textbook MATLAB Recipes for Earth Sciences, difficulties kept cropping up in reproducing the MATLAB graphs. Either it took much longer with Python or the graphics were just less pretty. Of course, it’s up to me, a less experienced Python user, so I invite all Python users to do better!
