Presentation of the MATLAB/LEGO MINDSTORMS Practical on the Day of Teaching at U Potsdam

On the Day of Teaching at U Potsdam I will give a talk about the MATLAB/LEGO MINDSTORMS practical, sponsored by MathWorks Inc. The practical, part of the master’s courses “Geosciences” and “Remote Sensing, geoInformation and Visualization“, as well as of the Summer School on Earth Surface Dynamics, aims to  improve student’s skills to build efficient teams to solve typical problems in earth sciences in acquiring, processing and analyzing typical multispectral (visible, infrared, thermal), geophysical (seismic, magnetic) and geometric (2D, 3D) data.

Comment on “Young Researchers Better Avoid EGU Journal Climate of the Past”

I am one of the 4 Chief Editors of the journal Climate of the Past (CP) which is referred to in the article by Martin Trauth. I would like to thank Professor Trauth for his courtesy in letting me explain the publication system of CP so that young researchers can decide for themselves whether it is for them or not.

Young Researchers Better Avoid EGU Journal Climate of the Past

Years ago my former doctoral student submitted a manuscript to the open access/open review EGU journal Climate of the Past. The manuscript about past climate variations in southern Ethiopia undoubtedly had its weaknesses and received negative reviews – and got rejected by editor Martin Claussen. Unfortunately, the rejected article along with reviews remains visible online at the CoP webpage and since then inspires reviewers of follow-up manuscripts submitted to other journals.

Turning off warnings in Live Editor impossible?

According to the Release Notes for R2017b the Live Editor now checks code for errors and warnings using the message bar and message indicator. However, deactivating the warnings in the editor does not seem to affect the Live Editor. Was the possibility of disabling warnings forgotten by the software developers? In my example the message bar is full of warnings marked in orange because I define graphics object handles most of which are not used.

U Potsdam Article About the MATLAB/LEGO MINDSTORMS Practical

Today the University of Potsdam published an article by Matthias Zimmermann about the MATLAB/LEGO MINDSTORMS practical, sponsored by MathWorks Inc. The practical, part of the master’s courses “Geosciences” and “Remote Sensing, geoInformation and Visualization“, as well as of the Summer School on Earth Surface Dynamics, aims to  improve student’s skills to build efficient teams to solve typical problems in earth sciences in acquiring, processing and analyzing typical multispectral (visible, infrared, thermal), geophysical (seismic, magnetic) and geometric (2D, 3D) data. Photo: Karla Fritze.
