GPSconverter: Python software for conversion/visualisation of GPS data ideated while walking in the Piedmont’s mountains

The idea of this original development arrived to me while I was in a trekking trip. With a GPS tracker I was able to track my position and then be sure I was following the right path/directions using the bearing recorded by the GPS module. In support of the map on paper (which anyway it… Continue reading GPSconverter: Python software for conversion/visualisation of GPS data ideated while walking in the Piedmont’s mountains

Docker-Kickstart: Learn to build and deploy easily your applications with Docker

My goal with this tutorial is to whet your mind and show you the power of Docker and examples of its appliations. In an ocean of new technology, it can be hard to navigate the waters alone and tutorials such as this one can provide an helping hand. This is the Docker tutorial I wish… Continue reading Docker-Kickstart: Learn to build and deploy easily your applications with Docker

Python tools for improoving the Copernicus NetCDF files downloads/manipulations

I developed these python softwares with the aim to improve, automise and simplify the downloads/manipulations of Copernicus NetCDF marine data (part of the European Union’s Earth observation programme). In the specific, they are the first python tools of its kind created in this framework (https://marine.copernicus.eu) ever realised. The main goals that I wanted to address… Continue reading Python tools for improoving the Copernicus NetCDF files downloads/manipulations

Seismic Ambient Noise: Group/Phase velocity dispersions and maps (Part II)

The CC contains velocity dispersion information (group/phase velocity) about the medium traversed by surface waves (the ambient seismic noise is mainly constituted by surface waves, see the previous article)  between each station pair. Once the dispersion information is extracted, it is possible to apply seismic tomography to obtain corresponding group and phase velocity maps. For the… Continue reading Seismic Ambient Noise: Group/Phase velocity dispersions and maps (Part II)

Seismic Ambient Noise: Cross-correlations (Part I)

Cross correlations and Ambient Seismic Noise (ASN) The recorded ambient seismic noise is generated mainly by natural sources such as meteorological and oceanic disturbances. For example, sea waves are capable of producing a certain pressure that can then vertically propagate to the sea floor and generate ground motion. The vertical force will also generate Rayleigh… Continue reading Seismic Ambient Noise: Cross-correlations (Part I)
