Practical training

The Munich winter school is extensively built around exercises that are carried out in between presentations on fundamental theory or software packages like ObsPy. To make this feasible with heterogeneous hardware (i.e., your laptops) we use the virtual box concept and/or Jupyter notebooks (best installed by downloading anaconda). From www.virtualbox.org you can download a driver for your specific OS. We will provide you with a virtualbox based on Ubuntu with all pre-installed software and data. Please bring your own laptops! We recommend RAM of at least 4GB for a smooth operation of the virtual box.

While we will train basic Python and ObsPy it is useful to familiarize yourself with the basic concepts beforehand. Please consult the ObsPy www pages and the new collection of Jupyter notebooks at www.seismo-live.org with lots of tutorials and access to some relevant publications.
