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

RSKtools organizes logger data in a Matlab structure, referred to as the RSK structure, which contains the logger data 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 with default input parameters. However, many parameters can be customized using name-value pair arguments.

Downloads and resources

To download the current stable version of RSKtools, please visit 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: Getting Started, while an example of how to use RSKtools to post-process RBR logger data can be found here: Post-processing RBR data

Software requirements

RSKtools requires MATLAB R2013b or later.

We suggest downloading the Gibbs-SeaWater Oceanographic Matlab toolbox and the cmocean colourmap library to maximize the capabilities of RSKtools.
