Short course at Universita di Roma TRE, June 2012

This short course introduces UNIX and LINUX as a platform for Earth science mapping and data analysis and provides comments on programming and scientific computing. In particular, it can serve as an introduction to use of the USC Geodynamics Earth Science Computing Environment, which contains software such as SEATREE. The course material also includes an introduction to using the Generic Mapping Tools (GMT) and iGMT.

Lectures:
