10 of the Best Free Linux Earth Science Software   
Sunday, April 03 2011 @ 04:08 AM EDT
Contributed by: sde

Earth science (also known as geoscience) is the focus of understanding the sciences related to the planet Earth. It includes a wide range of fields such as geology, geography, geophysics, meteorology, oceanography, and glaciology. Some people are surprised to learn that astronomy is also regarded to be an earth science. Geology is generally considered to be the primary earth science.

Science really prospers and advances when individuals share the results of their experiments with others in the scientific community. There is a certain logic that scientific software should therefore be released under an open source license. Software is crucial in helping earth scientists carry out scientific research in understanding the system earth and its interplay with society.

To provide an insight into the open source software that is available, we have compiled a list of 10 of our favourite earth science software. Hopefully, there will be something of interest here for budding scientists that need to work with large amounts of data with spatial attributes.
