The R package eseis – a comprehensive software toolbox for environmental seismology

Abstract. Environmental seismology is the study of the seismic signals emitted by Earth surface processes. This emerging research field is at the seams of seismology, geomorphology, hydrology, meteorology, and further Earth science disciplines. It amalgamates a wide variety of methods from across these disciplines and, ultimately, fuses them in a common analysis environment. This overarching scope of environmental seismology asks for a coherent, yet integrative software, which is accepted by many of the involved scientific disciplines. The statistic software R has gained paramount importance in the majority of data science research fields. R has well justified advances over other, mostly commercial software, which makes it the ideal language to base a comprehensive analysis toolbox on. The article introduces the avenues and needs of environmental seismology, and how these are met by the R package eseis. The conceptual structure, example data sets and available functions are demonstrated. Worked examples illustrate possible applications of the package and in depth descriptions of the flexible use of the functions. The package is available under the GPL license on the Comprehensive R Archive Network (CRAN) and maintained on Github.
