MASWaves (Multichannel Analysis of Surface Waves for assessing shear wave velocity profiles of soils) is an open source software, developed at the Faculty of Civil and Environmental Engineering, University of Iceland, for processing and analyzing multichannel surface wave records using MASW. The software is written in MATLAB. The software and the sample data can be downloaded on this site.

The MASWaves software can be used and modified free of charge. The author(s) take no responsibility for the use of the software, and make no guarantees, expressed or implied, about its quality, reliability, or any other characteristic. Users of MASWaves assume sole responsibility its use in any particular application, for any conclusions drawn from the results of its use, and for any actions taken or not taken as a result of analyses performed using this software.

Referencing the MASWaves software and publications related to its development is highly appreciated. Below is a list of publications related to the development of MASWaves.
