I document my learning journey in hopes that it will help others on a similar path. Some of my latest blog posts are linked below.
Optimizing Componentry Analysis of Tephra with Computer Vision Python in Science Conference (SciPy 2022) Tyler J. Newton, Joshua Wiejaczka Abstract Forecasts of volcanic ash hazards rely on models informed by field studies of analogous eruptions. Two model parameters that affect forecasts, plume height and mass eruption rate, are calculated through componentry analysis, in which the…
This blog post covers the results and implementation of time series sonification. A rendered version of the Jupyter Notebook follows (if compatible with your browser), and the notebook can be accessed at https://github.com/tjnewton/snippets/blob/master/sonification/sonify_rattlesnake_ridge.ipynb We can listen to a landslide via direct sonification of ground motion time series from a nodal seismometer deployed on the Rattlesnake…
Notes on debugging a GMT 4.5.18 install on macOS Catalina 10.15.7 (to use with NonLinLoc). Start by following the instructions to install GMT dependencies here: https://github.com/GenericMappingTools/gmt/wiki. I installed dependencies on macOS via Homebrew: Then download the source code tarball via the GMT GitHub Wiki: https://github.com/GenericMappingTools/gmt/wiki/GMT-4.5.18. Untar by double-clicking the downloaded file. Open a terminal window,…
