Welcome to Digital Earth Lab

Welcome! Digital Earth Lab is an exciting new earth science blog covering all the interesting and controversial topics nobody seems to touch. Here at DEL we believe us earth scientists reside in a extremely litigious industry full of intellectual property lawyers and sociopaths jerks. So don't you wish we could adopt new paradigms to encourage technological advancement? As an attempt to open up the industry to new ideas we will start by amassing as many amazing open source earth science applications as we can under one roof. So please add us to your RSS feed and check back every one to two weeks for updates.

Its Been Quite a Ride

First of all thanks everyone for their continuing support and feedback.  The download counter has risen to over 1500 downloads (+/- 500 thanks to Ukrainian bots) spanning 70+ countries. It has been a rewarding experience seeing so many different people from such varied and distinguished organizations using my software. Sadly it is time for to come to a close.

So What's Next for
I started as a way to share my software and work developed as part of my PhD. So now that my PhD has finally completed I will be decommissioning this website. I will keep  active and hosted for the next several years while I find a place to migrate the software and articles. I would like to migrate the software with still an existing geophysical open source consortium so if anybody has any ideas of where the software should reside please contact me.
CSEM Software From Inception...
I was 20 when I first devised of a CSEM modelling package, now at 26 I have a much clearer idea of how software should be structured and more largely the requirements for geophysical software development.  Software takes effort to create but good robust software takes dedication. I have been diligently adding to and modifying CSEMoMatic over these last 6 years and it has developed SIGNIFICANTLY from simple C code to a complex multi-dimensional Electromagnetic modelling and inversion platform written in Java. I co-wrote the first version with my friend Sean Phillips as part of his Honours Thesis for rapid generation of CSEM data for feasibility studies (Check out his work, it's a good read). The program took manual input and output the marine CSEM data into an easily importable format.

The work with Sean got [...]
