Introduce yourself ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿพ

If you are new to this forum, feel free to stop by here to introduce yourself. We are all humans and itโ€™s always nice to know the people talking to us :slight_smile:

You could just say โ€œHiโ€ or tell us a bit about yourself. Which ever feels right for you.

NOTE: Letโ€™s keep this thread as a place for introductions. You can always start a new thread if someoneโ€™s introduction makes you want to reply and discuss something.

Hello, everyone! Iโ€™m Leo and I joined the GMT team in 2017 when I went to work with Paul and create PyGMT. Iโ€™m a Lecturer of Geophysics at the University of Liverpool, UK, and mostly a Python developer. My website has more links and information: https://www.leouieda.com

Hello Everyone,

My name is Mohammed Chaanda, and I joined GMT today. I am palaeoclimate scientist and would like to develop modelling skills using Python and AI, I only have basic skills. I solicit for your support and cooperation towards meeting my aspiration. I am based in the University of Plymouth, UK.
Thank you and looking forward to enjoy the benefits been a member of this platform. Meanwhile, I would like to congratulate Paul on his recent award.

Hi Mohammed, welcome to the community forum and thanks for introducing yourself!

Hello Am John from Zhejiang University, China

Hello, I am Franck, and I joined GMT two years ago and pyGMT last month. I am a Geophysics and Physical Oceanographer. Currently, I am a PhD student at the University of Yaoundรฉ I, Cameroon (West Africa). Itโ€™s a pleasure to be member of this platform.

Hello,

I am Eric Fielding, a geophysicist at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. I am a long-time GMT user, trying to keep up with the new developments in GMT6. I still have a lot of scripts that use GMT4, but I have been slowly converting to GMT5.

Welcome John, Franck, and Eric! Good to see you all in here :tada:

am a student from Nigeria studying inZhejiang University, China. Nice to see a continent mate, Africa.

Whatโ€™s a nice community. Happy to be part.
Itโ€™s sound good too to be with you here John!

Hello all,

I am Lester, a structural geologist and specialist in geodynamics and the applications of potential-field data for regional tectonic models.

As a long-time GMT user (version 3 onwards) I am very interested in the development of advanced processing methodologies, particularly within GMT, and simplifying tasks in scripting.

Hi- Iโ€™m a seismologist and have been using gmt since the version 4 days.

Hi Roland, welcome to the forum! I fixed the formatting for your image in your post. To insert images, use ![alt text](link to image).

Hi,

I am David. A tectonic modeller and fairly long time gmt user. Starting with 6.0 now.

I am John Robbins, with the ICESat-2 Project Science Office at Goddard Space Flight Centerโ€™s Cryospheric Lab. Iโ€™m more of a geodesist, and have been using (abusing?) GMT since V.2 days (about 1990).

Just discovered this forum.

Is this the main place to ask questions, rather than on the github site? Glad to be here!

Hi @John_Geodesy, welcome to the forum!

Yes, we setup the forum to have a place to chat, ask questions, and post announcements. The Github Issues are where youโ€™d go to report bugs or request features.

To ask a question use the Q&A category of the forum. If you have cool plots/scripts/links/stories/papers to share involving GMT, then feel to post them in the Lounge category. Weโ€™ll be making announcements of new releases and events in the Announcements category.

If a question turns out to be a bug, we might ask you to submit an Issue on Github instead so you can track the progress.

Hi all,
This is Ahmet Anil Dindar from Department of Civil Engineering of Gebze Technical University in Turkey. GMT is an incredible tool for displaying the seismic activities in Turkey. Iโ€™d like to implement PyGMT in my Python scripts.

All the best.

++Ahmet

Hey,
Iโ€™m Michael, a trained seismologist/geophysicist with a strong interest in data science related topics and especially data visualization. I work with GMT since my master starting in 2011 and continued during my PhD. Some of my scripts produced over the years are available from my GitHub account (https://github.com/michaelgrund/GMT-plotting). Iโ€™m pleased to use GMT now directly from within the Python ecosystem :wink:
