The course aims to help undergraduates (sophomore to senior) and incoming graduate students quickly get familiar with various computing tools and programming languages in the cost-free Linux (the affinity of Unix) system used mostly in geophysics and seismology community. The students can then use these tools or write their own programs for homework assignments and research studies. The topics covered in the course will be introductory and mainly for Geoscience-majored students but the content should be general and useful enough for other students who need to do programming and computing for their study.
1. Introduction to Linux (Unix) system
C shell, awk, vi editor or others
2. GMT (Generic Mapping Tool)
x-y plot, map projection, geophysical data presentation, and etc..
Data analysis, visualization, math operation, and etc..
4. SAC (Seismic Analysis Code)
Time series analysis, seismic data processing, macro programming.
5. F77 and F90 language
Fortran language largely used in geophysics community
6. C language* (optional if time is allowed.)*
Popular programming language
