A Cross-Platform Software Package for Efficient Data Reduction of Environmental Electrochemical Measurements
Through collaboration with Kim Binsted, we are working toward an automated software package for voltammetric scan analysis, a web-oriented database of electrochemical calibration information, and 'intelligent’ data acquisition software capable of making directed sampling decisions during long, unattended data-logging deployments. Binsted provided research credit for two graduate students to work on this project. Kayo Fujiwara utilized Matlab to attempt to optimize a peak-identifying and measuring algorithm. Bryan Norman produced a Java-based graphical user interface. Binsted, Glazer, Fujiwara, and Norman met weekly to improve design and track progress. Individual components of the Graphical User Interface and peak-measuring algorithm are operational, but further development is required for practical application to data reduction.
