Students will familiarize themselves with the basics of the unix-environment and command-line coding, a variety of seismic data access methods, and simple software tools for processing and visualizing waveform data. The course is aimed at users with limited programming experience and/or knowledge of seismology.

Advanced Course, August 12-16, 2013

Students, postdocs, and early career scientists with a good foundation in unix-systems, programming, and seismology will learn methods for obtaining, accessing, and manipulating large amounts of waveform data. The course is aimed at users who are comfortable writing programs from scratch in one or more languages.
