Richard Styron has published several interesting tools for fault/stress analysis and other geoscience problems, see his website here: http://rocksandwater.net/. The latest Python tool he is sharing with us is for calculating fault slip rates from offset topography data – great stuff for paleoseismologists! He announced this a few days ago and allowed me to spread the news. Check it out and let him know what you think!
Last year I built a tool to calculate fault slip rates from offset marker data (age and offset distance of features cut by faults). Although I will be publishing a paper using it eventually, I’d like to spread the word about it now and just get it out to the community. The Slip Rate Calculator can be found here: https://github.com/cossatot/slip_rate_calculator, with more documentation.
