This session provides a multi-disciplinary overview of Geoscience research and applied case studies involving MATLAB, and it further discusses technical resources and new capabilities available to researchers and educators. MATLAB is a multi-paradigm numerical computing environment and programming language developed by MathWorks, which is supported by a large community of skilled toolbox developers and active users. It allows matrix manipulations, data plotting, algorithms implementation, creation of user interfaces, and interfacing with programs written in other programming languages. These characteristics of MATLAB functions and tools have attracted various projects in geoscientific fields of academia and industry, and particularly in data analysis, 2D/3D visualization and program development. Many scientific articles, including MATLAB-based applications, have been published in international journals. This session encourages studies introducing/applying MATLAB-based programs and applications. Contributions from all related fields of Earth Science are welcome.
In this session, we would like to provide an overview over the MATLAB ecosystem for geoscientists and engineers and to discuss recent technological developments. Useful techniques will be introduced to manage large distributed files and leverage cluster solutions for geoscientific computations. We will focus on the visualization of results for scientific publication and present state of the art capabilities to visualize geo-referenced data.
