D47crunch v2.0

08 Aug 2021

Dear colleagues,

For those of you working with combined measurements of Δ47 and Δ48 in carbonates or CO2, I'd like to announce a new version of the 'D47crunch' package. Despite its name, this Python library is now also able to process/standardize Δ48 data, using the same conceptual approach as for Δ47 [1]. Many thanks to Mattia Tagliavento for providing the impetus for this new version.

If you are involved in Δ48 analyses, it would be very helpful if you could check it out, kick the tires a little bit, report any bugs and/or request new features by opening an issue on github (links below).

[PS] I'd also like to encourage all of you working with code to release some of your work on public repositories such as github, gitlab, et al. Code is just a tool among others, and you might feel like your work is too simple/ugly/unprofessional to be made public, but the process of releasing open-source packages/libraries is actually a terrific way to improve your skills _and_ the final product itself. It is also a "low-friction" channel to receive feedback from colleagues, and goes a long way to insure that your scientific results are reproducible by others.
