StagLab ( is a software package that incorporates an extensive suite of fully-automated Geodynamic diagnostics and, crucially, applies state-of-the-art, scientific visualisation to produce publication-ready figures and movies, all in a blink of an eye, all fully reproducible. Indeed, StagLab is the first fully scientific visualisation software as it uses exclusively Scientific colour maps (from to prevent significant visual errors that would otherwise distort the underlying data and mislead the reader, while excluding others with colour-vision deficiencies. StagLab, a simple, flexible, efficient, reliable, and testable tool, is written in MatLab and adjustable for use with Geodynamic mantle-convection codes.


The development of StagLab is supported by the Research Council of Norway through its Centers of Excellence funding scheme, Project Number 223272.
