I want to know how the Earth works…

The Fourier transform is a core, but abstract concept and tool. It can be viewed from several different perspectives, so I think it is helpful to see how different authors describe it. O’Reilly have a good introduction with Python code. I think that the videos linked below are helpful in understanding various properties. Hope you […]

Just wanted to advertise the recording of this awesome presentation from Dr Maggie Creed on engineering modelling of bedload transport during flood events.  

As an academic, my work balances both delivering face to face teaching and the leadership and management of research in equal measure. COVID has had a profound impact on the way we can work and forced us to make decisions about how to best deliver high quality teaching and foster a community where researchers feel […]

Edinburgh is leading a £20M GCRF Hub in Urban Risk Transition in Tomorrow’s Cities with a focus on Kathmandu, Istanbul, Quito, and Nairobi. This week, we held a webinar on some of the seismic hazard work being undertaken in Kathmandu. I will post a link to the full webinar when it is available, but you […]

This week I was excited to discover a new tool called MathKey that allows you to write math by hand using a stylus or finger on an iPad and it gives you a latex, MathML or computer rendered image of the equation back. It works surprisingly well! Really good for making presentations, lecture notes, writing […]

Modelling seismicity as a spatio-temporal point process using inlabru Background: This PhD is funded through the ‘RISE’ project as part of the Horizon 2020 program: Towards operational forecasting of earthquakes and early warning capacity for more resilient societies.Operational earthquake forecasting is the development of time evolving forecasts to quantify and communicate changing seismic hazard [1], […]

 Project Summary: You will develop and utilise a seismic monitoring system to monitor the mobilisation and transport of bedload in mountain rivers to understand impacts on flood hazard and fluvial erosion rates.  A full description of the project can be found on the E4 website. Project Background: Rivers that drain mountain catchments carry a bedload […]

Project Summary: You will develop a new Bayesian framework for forecasting the occurrence and evolution of natural hazards by adapting a cutting-edge spatio-temporal modelling package, originally developed for ecological systems. The full project description and details of how to apply for this as a NERC PhD can be found on the E4 website: Forecasting the spatio-temporal evolution of natural […]

In this post, I will just update the plots I showed in Part 1 of this blog. It has been a little difficult as I am relying on information in the public domain – and there have been few authoritative statements made directly by Cuadrilla. I have tried to highlight where I have only partial […]

  Professional grade seismometers are expensive, which is unfortunate because I would like to get a small network to experiment with. Thankfully – there is a potential solution. The Raspberry Shake team have been developing low cost seismometer using a Raspberry Pi to manage the software side. There are various flavours of Raspberry Shake. The 1D […]
