Cambridge University Earth Sciences
Bullard Laboratories - the
home of geophysics in Cambridge
Here is a great site on sequence
stratigraphy from the University of South Carolina. Check it out.
Here is a FORTRAN script which has coded up the Zoeppritz Equations. These
equations describe the relative amplitudes of reflected transmitted and
converted waves with angle of incidence at an interface between two media
of differing properties. The zprtz.f subroutine was written by G. B. Young
and L. W. Braile. The main.f front end was written by me, Jenny Maresh
while at the Bullard Laboratories, University of Cambridge. You can probably
tell that I don't know the first thing about FORTRAN. :o)
Compile the script doing something like this: f77 main.f zprtz.f
main.f - The front end fortran
zprtz.f - The main fortran subroutine
zprtz.help - A help file to help
zprtz.par - A sample input file
The next useful tool is a UTM to geographic coordinate converter. Someone
has told me that this can be done in GMT,
and I don't doubt it. GMT is
after all totally amazing and fantastic. However here is another FORTRAN program
this time written by Rose Edwards, formally of Bullard Laboratories, which
does a good job. Various important things to know about the program
are included in the associated help file.
Next are some useful Geological/Computery type links which I use in
GMT - Generic Mapping Tools,
better than any fancy GIS package... and free
to Geographic convertor - A useful java applet if you want to convert
just one or two points quickly
2D traveltime inversion and amplitude modeling programs from Colin Zelt
at Rice University, Texas.
nedit - My new favorite text editor.
gnuplot - a very quick way of plotting
things up and looking at functions in 2D and 3D.
gnuplot tutorial - This
site got me up and running with gnuplot.
Here are some links which might be useful for anyone writing a thesis
especially if the use LaTeX.
University Engineering has a great LaTeX tutorial plus loads of key
links and downloads. (I think access may be limited to cam only though)
is the bibliography arm of LaTeX. This Harvard University site explains
how to use it.
Guide to Grammar and Style is a bit American, but useful all the same
The Elements of Style by William
Strunk, Jr. purportedly a 1918 classic is published in it's entirety by
OED - The definitive word on words.
More LaTeX stuff can be found here...
