Breaking the Walls of Subsurface Energy in Aarhus

How do you make science outreach, when your topic is not “sexy”? I work in hydrocarbons. I don’t cure HIV. I don’t work with 2D materials or machine learning (yet). So how do you talk about the awesome work you do in 3 minutes on a public stage? Falling Walls Lab Aarhus Aarhus set the […]

Supercharge your geoscience knowledge

The internet is a wonderful place. Information is a press of the finger away. We can retrieve scientific papers in seconds. We can connect to others, exchange ideas and collaborate. Here are some of my favorite ways. An Update on RSS Of course, this is not it. In my first post on geo-awesomeness, I gathered […]

Scientific Conferences on a Budget

Conferences are an important part of the world of science and technology. We get to publish preliminary results and bounce them off of our colleagues (or sometimes strongest competitors). It’s time for networking and also helps to take a break from the lab grind. But conferences take a huge burden on our budget. We have […]

My Interview with the EAGE about the Way of the Geophysicist

The European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE) interviewed me. It appears in the 2015 edition of their student newsletter. My fellow students already asked me about it and now you can read it online! I enjoyed talking in the interview with Kirsten Brandt and I do hope more opportunities like this may arise. Interview: Blogging his way […]

New on StackExchange: Temporal Resolution of Seismic data

Radius of the Fresnel zone is given by where v: velocity of layer : two way travel time :dominant frequency in the spectrum This shows that high frequencies give better resolution than lower frequencies and resolution deteriorates with depth and increasing velocities. However I found some text in “Seismic Data Analysis- Yilmaz” which is contradictory. […]

Do we even need math? – Calculus in geophysics and geology

The amount of calculus in geophysics and geology degrees varies throughout every university and even in uni itself, there seldomly is a consensus on how much math is actually needed. Jascha Polet from Cal Poly Pomona asked a very interesting question on Twitter: Should every student who graduates from a Geology (not Env Sciences) MSc […]

Lying with statistics

Lying with statistics.

You can see it quite often today, that an essential part of an axis is missing. I usually think highly critical of not showing your entire plot. Finally someone has made the appropriate visualization about lying with statistics. Baseline matters via Flowing Data from Reddit  

Gain traction in the Geoscience community

The internet is a wonderful place. I am one of the lucky people who does not have to wait for weeks to get a hold of a paper I might need for my thesis. As a scientist this international network has become indispensible. Not just for retrieving papers, but also the review process and colaboration. […]

52 things you should know about geology

How about a great book to read? People like to read in the most diverse situations. On the train, on a plane, when you take a couple of minutes off, or if you don’t have a working internet connection like me (it’s been over a month… I’m going crazy!). So finally I had the time […]
