03.08.2021 | DSC Seed Grant
DSC funds a Data Science Project in Geosciences
The DSC Seed Grant goes to Dr. Alice Lefebvre for the development of a Bedform Analysis Toolbox.
The DSC Seed Grant was awarded for the fifth time. The aim of the internationally integrated project led by Dr. Alice Lefebvre from MARUM is to develop a Bedform Analysis Toolbox
(BAT). Bedforms – ripples, dunes, sandwaves – are ubiquitous features in sandy subaqueous settings. They exert a major influence on a range of processes, from small-scale turbulence and sediment transport to large-scale coastal geomorphology.
The open source BAT will combine already available methods to analyse bedforms into one easy-to-use software. In collaboration with international geoscientists and a data scientist, this MATLAB toolbox will be created in the coming months. The toolbox will enable the bedform research community itself, but also non-experts, to examine large bathymetic datasets to characterize bedform properties.
