The David M. Lawrence Science! Page
Well, since I'm not satisfied with having a life, I decided to create some scientific programs that you -- who are also apparently not satisfied with having a life, can run off of the web. I've just got started, so the list is short. But I will be adding to it over time.
A new version of CLIM EXtract for WINdows is now available. The new version of the program can search and extract climate data from both Global Historical Climate Network version 1 and version 2 files.
Environmental risk assessment utility:
Introducing EPC Calculator, a program that can help risk assessors evaluate contaminant data and calculate the exposure point concentration (EPC) of the data using the appropriate statistical distribution.
- CLIMate EXtract for Windows, which retrieves selected climate data from Global Historical Climate Network (GHCN) files. There are two versions, ClimExWin, for extracting data from GHCN version 1 files, and ClimExWinV2, for extracting data from GHCN version 2 files. The only 16-bit versions, for Windows 3.1 or DOS systems, have been discontinued -- but may be available upon request.
- Verify for Windows, an update of Henri D. Grissino-Mayer's verify5 program. The new version of Verify for Windows should run on later Windows operating systems (Windows 7, Windows Vista).
- Setup documentation for the Metronics Quick-Chek QC-1000 Digital Readout.
- A draft notice of prior art prepared in response to Herman J. Heikkenen's crossdating patent. It is in Adobe Acrobat (*.pdf) format.
- Back in 1994 I spent two months in Manitoba and Saskatchewan collecting tree-ring chronologies in support of the Boreal Ecosystem-Atmosphere Study (BOREAS). For those of you who are interested, you can keep up with my progress as I slowly finish working up the samples.
Almost useful stuff:
- Simple English-metric unit conversions and map scale conversions.
- A model to estimate the amount of solar radiation reaching the Earth's surface.
