RSKtools is a collection of Matlab m-files designed to access, process, and visualize data from RBR loggers.

RSKtools organises logger data in a Matlab structure, referred to as the RSK structure, which contains the logger and deployment metadata. The RSK structure supports two data formats: a continuous time series, or a collection of profiles. After loading the data into Matlab, it is easy to plot and process the data using default input arguments. All optional input arguments are name-value pair arguments which make the functions customisable and flexible.

Downloads and resources

For the current stable version of RSKtools, please go to RBR website. For developing and historical versions, one can check the Bitbucket repo.

An example of how to access and visualize RBR logger data can be found in this guide: Standard, while an example how to use RSKtools to post-process RBR logger data can be found here: Post-Processing

Software requirements

RSKtools requires MATLAB R2013b or later.

We suggest downloading TEOS-10 ToolboxGibbs-SeaWater Oceanographic Matlab Toolbox, and oceanographic colourmap cmocean Toolbox to maximize the capabilities of this toolbox.
