Each week, the FLOSS Weekly podcast takes an hour-long look at exciting projects in the world of Free/Libre and Open Source Software. It recently covered QGIS (or Quantum GIS), which is a really nice, user friendly, Geographical Information Systems package … Continue reading
Inspired by Erik Klemmetti’s recent blog post about the rise of the term ‘supervolcano’, and by the imminent launch of the Volcano Top Trumps card game, I’ve created a quick game of my own: Soup or Volcano? The rules are … Continue reading
I’ve made an iPython Notebook that explains how to use lognormal distributions in Python/SciPy. Python is a free and open source programming language that is becoming increasingly popular with scientists as a replacement for Matlab or IDL. I hope that … Continue reading
The panorama above shows the volcanoes of Southern Iceland highlighted by early Autumn snows. Click the image for a full size version. It was taken near the town of Hella. From left to right, they are Hekla, Torfajökull, Tindfjallajökull, Katla … Continue reading

This post is a taste of (not so) slackademia. It shows how much work is involved in preparing the funding application for a NERC Standard Grant. It also includes a LaTeX template for anyone writing their own. It can be … Continue reading
I was quoted on the Daily Telegraph website at the weekend, in an article about the number of travel insurance companies whose policies cover volcanic ash. I’d answered some questions from the author by email, then he told me when … Continue reading
Here are some of my highlights from last week’s European Geoscience Union conference. These were presentations dirty hailstones formed in subglacial volcanic eruptions, a workshop on social media and blogging in geosciences, a splinter meeting on open source software in … Continue reading
