I want to know how the Earth works…

We want to be able to deploy the Geoduino Seismic system as a data logger in remote locations which are off grid. It is therefore really important that we consider how to power the Geoduino efficiently. In some settings, this might be off a lead acid (like a car battery) with solar power to recharge […]

By PhD Student Bronwyn Matthews (Sounding Out the River) In September 2020, I started my PhD amidst a global pandemic of which I had no idea about when I applied in January 2020. I found the PhD opening for a project entitled ‘Sounding out the river: Seismic monitoring of bedload mobilisation and transport in mountain […]

There are two ways to control what the chips are doing. Use the microcontroller to make things happen Use functionality built into the chips to control operations In this post, we are going to look at the latter. Our Geoduino Seismic ADC system has a few different chips that can be programmed. We will start […]

Authors: Francesco Serafini (1), Mark Naylor (1), Finn Lindgren (1), Maximilian Werner (2), Ian Main (1) (1) University of Edinburgh, (2) University of Bristol Funding: This collaborative project was funded by the Real-time Earthquake Risk Reduction for a Resilient Europe “RISE” project, which has received […]

Here is the presentation from PhD Student Francesco Serafini at the Edinburgh School of GeoSciences annual Postgraduate Research Conference. He is funded by the Real-time earthquake rIsk reduction for a reSilient Europe project (H2020 RISE). Please find a pdf copy full paper on the arXiv preprint server. ABSTRACT: This work is about ranking earthquake forecasts […]

Here is the presentation from Dr Kirsty Bayliss in our group at the Seismological Society of America this year. She is funded by the Real-time earthquake rIsk reduction for a reSilient Europe project (H2020 RISE). ABSTRACT: To develop robust and reliable earthquake forecasts, we must have a good understanding of spatial patterns of seismicity. Log-Gaussian […]

  Blog Author: Francesco Serafini (2nd year PhD Student, H2020 funded) What a year to start a PhD! If two years ago someone told me that I would have found myself writing a blog post about my first year as PhD student in Geosciences at the University of Edinburgh during a global pandemic I wouldn’t believe […]

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 […]
