We are pleased to announce a series of seminars on data analysis in geosciences. The duration will be approximately 30-45 min. and the tutor is Liubomyr Gavryliv, PhD. from the Department of Mineralogy, Petrology and Economic Geology, FNS CU. Liubomyr currently works as a MarieSkłodowska-Curie research fellow in the UK and develops a multidimensional relational data model for mineralogical data analysis.

The seminar will go into the fundamentals of data analysis and its practical implications in mineralogy and geology
with a few examples from the tutor’s experience. We will discuss the following topics:

(1) What is data analysis and is it important in mineralogy?
(2) Most popular programming languages and tools for data analysis: Python and R
(3) Data collection: principal methods and drawbacks
(4) Data cleaning and transformation
(5) Data warehouse: databases vs temporary data storages
(6) Important resources for making data analysis

A short discussion will take place about the general improvement of research quality by the employment of
data analysis techniques with key examples.
