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.

Abstract: Gms-index-mediator is a standalone index for spatio-temporal data acting as a mediator between an application and a database. Even modern databases need several minutes to execute a spatio-temporal query to huge tables containing several million entries. Our index-mediator speeds the execution of such queries up by several magnitues, resulting in response times around 100ms. This version is tailored towards the GeoMultiSens database, but can be adapted to work with custom table layouts with reasonable effort.

Abstract: The validation of a simulation model is a crucial task in model development. It involves the comparison of simulation data to observation data and the identification of suitable model parameters. SLIVISU is a Visual Analytics framework that enables geoscientists to perform these tasks for observation data that is sparse and uncertain. Primarily, SLIVISU was designed to evaluate sea level indicators, which are geological or archaeological samples supporting the reconstruction of former sea level over the last ten thousands of years and are compiled in a postgreSQL database system. At the same time, the software aims at supporting the validation of numerical sea-level reconstructions against this data by means of visual analytics.

Abstract: Grond is an open source software tool for robust characterization of earthquake sources. Moment tensors and finite fault rupture models can be estimated from a combination of seismic waveforms, waveform attributes and geodetic observations like InSAR and GNSS. It helps you to investigate diverse magmatic, tectonic, and other geophysical processes at all scales. It delivers meaningful model uncertainties through a Bayesian bootstrap-based probabilistic joint inversion scheme. The optimisation explores the full model space and maps model parameter trade-offs with a flexible design of objective functions. Rapid forward modelling is enabled by using pre-computed Green's function databases, handled through the Pyrocko software library. They serve synthetic near-field surface displacements and synthetic seismic waveforms for arbitrary earthquake source models and geometries.

Abstract: This software publication describes the data acquisition, processing and modelling of hydrological, meteorological and gravity time series prepared for the Argentine-German Geodetic Observatory (AGGO) in La Plata, Argentina. The corresponding output data set is available at http://doi.org/10.5880/GFZ.5.4.2018.001 (Mikolaj et al., 2018). Processed hydrological series include soil moisture, temperature, electric conductivity, and groundwater variation. The processed meteorological time series comprise air temperature, humidity, pressure, wind speed, solar short- and long-waver radiation, and precipitation. Modelling scripts include evapotranspiration, combined precipitation, and water content variation in the zone between deepest soil moisture sensor and groundwater. In addition, large-scale hydrological, oceanic as well as atmospheric effect are modelled along with the local hydrological effects. To allow for a comparison of the model outputs to observations, processing script of gravity residuals is provided as well.

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: The processing of Persistent Scatterer Interferometry (PSI) data and the estimation of displacement is a nonlinear and user-driven procedure that can introduce large errors for noisy backscatter points. Results may differ significantly depending on chosen thresholds, filter settings, constraints and final interpretation. Thus the identification of valid PS with rather low errors in the SAR data is a crucial step in the PSI workflow. PSI-Explorer is a scientific prototype of our visual-analytics (VA) approach supporting this important task. The prototype is written in Java and operates on Matlab files.

Abstract: For frequencies above 30 mHz the instrument intrinsic noise level of typical fluxgate magnetometers used at geomagnetic observatories usually masks ambient magnetic field variations on magnetically quiet days. Natural field variations referred to as pulsations (Pc-1, Pc-2, Pi-1) fall in this band. Usually their intensity is so small that they rarely surpass the instrumental noise of fluxgate magnetometers. INTERMAGNET has set a minimum quality standard for definitive 1 s data (Turbitt, 2014) which can actually hardly be met by fluxgate magnetometers in use by magnetic observatories. Brunke et al. (2017) propose a method to improve 1Hz observatory data by merging data from the proven and tested fluxgate magnetometers currently in use with induction coil magnetometers into a single data stream. This data publication includes the according MATLAB software package implementing the merging of both data sets. The content of the software package and the functionality of each module is described in the content.txt file that is also included in the zip folder. The resulting data are in line with the INTERMAGNET format for 1 s magnetic data, but surpasses the INTERMAGNET 1 s standard by far. The long term stability of the fluxgate data is not affected. The changes to the fluxgate data remain within the range of the instrument intrinsic noise. In addition to the Matlab software, we provide test datasets of one day length kindly provided by the magnetic observatories Niemegk, Conrad and Eskdalemuir.

Abstract: This code (nwrap.ijm) can be used to generate an 'unrolled' circumferential image of a tomographic drill-core scan, such as an X-ray Computed Tomography (CT) scan. The resulting image is analogous to those produced by a DMT CoreScan system®. By comparing such images to geographically references borehole televiewer data, it may be used to reorientate drill-core back into geographic space (Williams et al. submitted). This code should be installed and run as a plugin on ImageJ/Fiji. Full instructions are given in the code and in the Appendix A of Williams et al. (submitted). Examples of unrolled CT scans can be found at Williams et al (2017, http://doi.org/10.5880/ICDP.5052.004).
