Python: Pandas

Python Data Analysis Library There is a Jupyter Notebook accompanying this post HERE! In a previous session we explored NumPy in detail, learning about array structures and vectorisation. While NumPy is extremely powerful, it has some limitations. For example, data is organised into rows and columns (often in more than 2 dimensions) without labels other … Continue reading Python: Pandas

Python: NumPy

There is a Jupyter Notebook accompanying this post HERE. NumPy is a Python package built around the concept of ndarrays (n-dimensional arrays) along with a suite of efficient functions for applying operations over those arrays. Many of the other important packages for data scientists are built on top of NumPy (e.g. Pandas, scikit-learn). In the … Continue reading Python: NumPy

Python: Arrays

Run and experiment with the code in this tutorial using the Jupyter Notebook Intro Abstraction is one of the fundamental concepts in object-oriented programming. It enables a user to implement an idea without having to grapple with its implementation, or put another way it allows access to a high level concept while hiding away lower-level … Continue reading Python: Arrays

Supraglacial Biogeochemistry Chapter

I recently wrote a chapter on the application of biogeochemical measurement techniques to glacier surfaces which will hopefully┬ábe of interest to students and fellow early career researchers, especially now during MSc project proposal time! Link here This chapter contributes to the British Society for Geomorphology's "Geomorphological Techniques" textbook which is rapidly growing and is a … Continue reading Supraglacial Biogeochemistry Chapter
