CSEM Activity Around the World

I really like this map as it highlights the different regions using CSEM and to what extent.
Not too many suprises but you can see high activity areas of:
San Diego correlating to Scripps
Norway and Germany correlating with EMGS and Fugro
Perth correlating with Me and Curtin University/others who've i spruked my software to
A few worthy notes:
A heap of activity in China and SE Asia
Seems like Nigeria is the hot spot of CSEM for Africa
Would have expected activity from Russia and Canada, but hey, can't complain.
Thanks for everyones support!

So I have a brain wave reading device?


I have tried some highlyexperimental programming as part of my PhD. As you may have figured out I am not just into Geophysics and MCSEM but I am also into human computer interactions.

The main reason I am into this area is that I HATE COMPUTERS. I won't get into too many explanations but I find that they perform poorly at communicating information. This is why I spend too much time on my interface rather than my actual software's innards.

First of all I found this device, the Neurosky Mindwave, and thought it was pretty cool. I have heard that UWA and Woodside and others were trialing these things out to understand the seismic/gravity/magnetic interpretation process so having to myself sounded awesome. It is actually meant as a toy, but it seemed like a pretty decent EEG. So as a hobbyist I had fun trialing out the 'toy's' potential. So after some time tinkering with drivers a few experiments were performed.

1. What is my brain pattern when I work?

2. Whoah, that first experiment was cool. Can you use this to detect liars?

3. Now those experiments were successful I wan't to claim my name to something. Lets make the first brain controlled interface system connected to a geophysical software package. Just for kicks.

Experiment 1 : What is my Working Pattern?

No real hypothesis. I knew how I worked but it was good to see it in the data.


I wrote my own logging program in java using the JNI code that came with the device which connected to the C drivers.
I actually did an experiment covering 8 hours of continuous work (coding).
This collected in excess of 24mb of raw data.
Each recording is computed around 1 second. The program recorded time [...]

Omnium CSEMoMatic Beta v1.0

The next gen beta CSEMoMatic Version.

It is shiny and new! See donwloads to try it out or see some screenshots from the gallery.

Yes, I know it is incomplete, but it is just a taste taster. Please send in your comments!

New Website

I like change. A new website using the wordpress engine with content management seems like a good place to start.
