Re: [seul-sci] For discussion
Thanks for the nice introduction!
It would be nice if you made a list of what is missing in Linux
so we could reply to it. Normally there is always a similar program
in Linux, the problem is that they are normally very different.
Let me now introduce myself.
I am around 35 years old (a bit old for these kind of stuff) and
I am working right now at the Spanish Instituto Nacional de
Meteorologia (I guess no translation is needed).
I received my PhD at the Instituto de Astrofisica de Canarias
some years ago.
Right now I am involved in several fields of research, mainly
atmospheric aerosols and atmospheric remote water vapour
measurements. As a side subject I also work in complexity in physical
systems (chaos and such).
I am the virtual head (not formal head) of the Grupo de Aerosoles y
Radiacion from the Atmospheric Izaņa Observatory in Tenerife (Canary
Islands). This group is formed by two more persons besides me.
In the free software comunity I have written two drivers for data
adquisition systems and some programs to adquire and plot that data.
I think this is a field were there is much to be done in Linux.
I am also getting more involved as a developer in the PDL language
(Perl Data Language) which is a language based in Perl for
manipulating large data sets. By the way there is also an interface
for R from PDL.
