Abstract: The task of downloading comprehensive datasets of event-based seismic waveforms has been made easier through the development of standardised web services, but is still highly non-trivial, as the likelihood of temporary network failures or even worse subtle data errors naturally increase when the amount of requested data is in the order of millions of relatively short segments. This is even more challenging as the typical workflow is not restricted to a single massive download but consists of fetching all possible available input data (e.g., with several repeated download executions) for a processing stage producing any desired user-defined output. Here, we present stream2segment, a highly customisable Python 2+3 package helping the user through the whole workflow of downloading, inspecting and processing event-based seismic data by means of a relational database management system as archiving storage, which has clear performance and usability advantages. Stream2segment provides an integrated processing implementation able to produce any kind of user-defined output based on a configuration file and a user-defined Python function. Stream2segment can also produce diagnostic maps or user-defined plots which, unlike existing tools, do not require external software dependencies and are not static images but interactive browser-based applications ideally suited for data inspection or annotation tasks.

Abstract: EMMA – End Member Modelling Analysis of grain-size data is a technique to unmix multimodal grain-size data sets, i.e., to decompose the data into the underlying grain-size distributions (loadings) and their contributions to each sample (scores). The R package EMMAgeo contains a series of functions to perform EMMA based on eigenspace decomposition. The data are rescaled and transformed to receive results in meaningful units, i.e., volume percentage. EMMA can be performed in a deterministic and two robust ways, the latter taking into account incomplete knowledge about model parameters. The model outputs can be interpreted in terms of sediment sources, transport pathways and transport regimes (loadings) as well as their relative importance throughout the sample space (scores).

Abstract: BayHunter is an open source Python tool to perform an McMC transdimensional Bayesian inversion of receiver functions and/ or surface wave dispersion. It is inverting for the velocity-depth structure, the number of layers and noise parameters (noise correlation and amplitude). The forward modeling codes are provided within the package, but are easily replaceable with own codes. It is also possible to add (completely different) data sets. The BayWatch module can be used to live-stream the inversion while it is running: this makes it easy to see how each chain is exploring the parameter space, how the data fits and models change and in which direction the inversion progresses.

Abstract: This publication contains tools for statistical evaluation and exploration of data published by Radosavljevic et al. (2016). These data contain bulk geochemistry data (total organic carbon, nitrogen, stable carbon isotope) and granulometry of nearshore samples in the vicinity of Herschel Island, Yukon, Canadian Beaufort Sea. In addition, the functions of the script herein provide a means for summaries and comparison with terrestrial (Couture, 2010; Tanski et al., 2017; Obu et al., 2016) and marine (a subset of Naidu et al., 2000) data. The tools are contained in a script written for the R software environment for statistical computing and graphics. The script (sediments_geochemistry_plots_and_summaries.r) is richly documented and explains the functionality. Each data file also contains a description of the data in a comma separated file (csv).The functions of the script are:myinteract() - interactive modemysum() - provides numerical summaries for WBP and TB, a box plot and runs a Two-sided Mann-Whitney-Wilcoxon testmyloc() - provides numerical summaries and comparisons among the current study, marine, and terrestrial samples, a box plot and runs a Two-sided Mann-Whitney-Wilcoxon testmyseds() - provides numerical summaries and comparisons of grain size data among the current studymycums() - plots cumulative frequency curves of grain size distributions by transectThe package contains (included in the zip folder):sediments_geochemistry_plots_and_summaries.r - script filegeochemistry_data_including_other_studies.csv - contains data by Radosavljevic et al.

Abstract: Geoarchives are an important source to understand the interplay of climate and landscape developments in the past. One important example are sediment cores from the ground of lakes. The microfacies-explorer is a Java-based prototype, that provides a tailored combination of visual and data mining methods enabling scientists to explore categorical data from geoarchives.

Abstract: Radiance Light Trends is a GIS web application that is designed to quickly display information about radiance trends at a specific location (available online at https://lighttrends.lightpollutionmap.info). It uses data from two satellite systems, DMSP-OLS and VIIRS DNB, with data processing by NOAA. New VIIRS layers are added automatically as soon as NOAA makes them available to public. The web application allows the user to examine changes in nighttime light emissions (nearly) worldwide, from 1992 up until last month. From 1992 to 2013, data comes from the Operational Linescan System of the Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) satellites. From 2012 to the present, data comes from the Day/Night Band of the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite instrument (VIIRS DNB). Due to significant differences in the instruments (as described by Miller et al., 2013), it is not possible to have a single record running from 1992 to today. A description of the VIIRS DNB night lights product used in this application was published by Elvidge et al. (2017), the data used in the app can be accessed from the NOAA Earth Observation Group (EOG) Website: https://ngdc.noaa.gov/eog/download.html

Abstract: We present SCOTER, an open-source Python programming package that is designed to relocate multiple seismic events by using direct P- and S-wave station correction terms. The package implements static and shrinking-box source-specific station terms techniques extended to regional and teleseimic distances and adopted for probabilistic, non-linear, global-search location for large-scale multiple-event location. This program provides robust relocation results for seismic event sequences over a wide range of spatial and temporal scales by applying empirical corrections for the biasing effects of 3-D velocity structure. Written in the Python programming language, SCOTER is run as a stand-alone command-line tool (requiring no knowledge of Python) and also provides a set of sub-commands to develop required input files (e.g. phase files, travel-time grid files, configuration) and export relocation results (such as hypocenter parameters, travel-time residuals) in different formats -- routine but non-trivial tasks that can consume much user time. This package can be used for relocating data sets in local, regional, and teleseimic scales.

Abstract: The presented datasets and scripts have been obtained for testing the performance of a trigger algorithm for use in combination with a ringshear tester ‘RST-01.pc’. Glass beads (fused quartz microbeads, 300-400 µm diameter) and thai rice are sheared at varying velocity, stiffness and normal load. The data is provided as preprocessed mat-files ('*.mat') to be opened with Matlab R2015a and later. Several scripts are provided to reproduce the figures found in (Rudolf et al., submitted). A detailed list of files together with the respective software needed to view and execute them is available in 'List_of_Files_Rudolf-et-al-2018.pdf' (also available in MS Excel Format). More information on the datasets and a small documentation of the scripts is given in 'Explanations_Rudolf-et-al-2018.pdf'. The complete data publication, including all descriptions, datasets, and evaluation scripts is available as 'Dataset_Rudolf-et-al-2018.zip'.

Abstract: This service provides routing information for distributed data centres, in the case where multiple different seismic data centres offer access to data and products using compatible types of services. Examples of the data and product objects are seismic timeseries waveforms, station inventory, or quality parameters from the waveforms. The European Integrated Data Archive (EIDA) is an example of a set of distributed data centres (the EIDA „nodes“). EIDA have offered Arclink and Seedlink services for many years, and now offers FDSN web services, for accessing their holdings. In keeping with the distributed nature of EIDA, these services could run at different nodes or elsewhere; even on computers from normal users. Depending on the type of service, these may only provide information about a reduced subset of all the available waveforms. To be effective, the Routing Service must know the locations of all services integrated into a system and serve this information in order to help the development of smart clients and/or services at a higher level, which can offer the user an integrated view of the entire system (EIDA), hiding the complexity of its internal structure. The service is intended to be open and able to be queried by anyone without the need of credentials or authentication.

Abstract: GeoMultiSens developed an integrated processing pipeline to support the analysis of homogenized data from various remote sensing archives. The processing pipeline has five main components: (1) visual assessment of remote sensing Earth observations, (2) homogenization of selected Earth observation, (3) efficient data management with XtreemFS, (4) Python-based parallel processing and analysis algorithms implemented in a Flink cloud environment, and (5) visual exploration of the results. GeoMultiSens currently supports the classification of land-cover for Europe.
