Introducing FORCinel v. 3.0: A unified environment for processing, analysis and simulation of first-order reversal curve diagrams
FORCinel is a free software package for the processing and analysis of First Order Reversal Curve (FORC) diagrams. The software is written using Igor Pro by Wavemetrics. Although Igor Pro is a commercial package, Wavemetrics offer a fully functional demo version for both Mac and Windows, so you can download it and get started right away! The full version of Igor Pro is available to students at a heavily discounted price.
Version 3.0 is a major new version of FORCinel that includes dramatic improvements in speed and ease of use, fantastic new features, and full integration with our other advanced FORC software packages (FORCem and FORCulator). See What’s New in Version 3 to find out more!
FORCinel is written by Richard Harrison of the Department of Earth Sciences, University of Cambridge. Please feel free to contact the author with any questions/bug reports/feature requests.
