GLG410 Surfaces Matlab
Following the lecture on contouring, the demonstrations of contouring,
gridding and surfaces from the Matlab book, and the Electron density
demonstration, complete the following tasks for the beginning of lab,
Tuesday, November 23.
- Read and work through the examples in Chapter 8 of Middleton
sections 8.1 and 8.2.
- Given these data of the surveyed topography along the San Andreas
fault zone, make:
a) a contour map of the dataset with a 1 m contour interval. Overlay
b) Two surface plots with lighting and useful view directions to show
the scenery. Use the subplot command to put both of the plots in the
same figure. THe left one should show the data points as well, while
the right one will not. Use two different views and or colormaps to
illustrate what you think is important. Write a 1-2 sentence
description of the site and what you want us to see in your plot.
- Following the Electron density
demonstration, use this
dataset of the Na32.grd: It is the electrons density data for
R(NaO)=3.2. The Na atom is not bonded to the bridging O atom. Perform the
transformations and calculations demosntrated, and make a similar figure as
this one. Write a 1-2 sentence description of what you think the different
plots highlight and which are more useful than others.
- Make a web page report with figures of the above tasks 2 and 3
(including diary excerpts and your written commentary). Email the url
to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
