Amazing footage in the YouTube video! To think that in 2006 I was standing on the summit and now it's an explosion of magma.
 
Volcanic eruption at Volcan Villarrica.

It is one of the most active volcanoes in Chile and a popular tourist destination located in the Chilean Lake District and home to a National Park. The alert in the area has been raised to RED and local communities are being evacuated.

The violent eruption began last night, and was caught on camera, you can now watch it on the BBC website (egu.eu/5ARQH5) or via this alternative YouTube link (egu.eu/3HMF85).
You can also view some still images of the eruption here: egu.eu/4AC0IH
David Pyle, of the Volcanic Degassing blog, has written a post with some very useful insights into the eruptive history of this volcano. The post also includes a number of links to keep up to speed with the current activity: egu.eu/8S7W6C

TL;DR: People are remembered for trying hard more than for succeeding.

You can see this sort of thing in shows like +The Voice​ as well. Very interesting read!

New blog post about my Euler deconvolution tutorial for The Leading Edge. The tutorial is #openaccess, code is #opensource and data is available on +figshare!
New paper: Euler deconvolution of potential field data. Posted on Dom 27 abril 2014 by Leonardo Uieda. This post is a bit late (almost a month actually) but here it goes. We have new publication in the April issue of The Leading Edge! You can grad a copy from the journal website (it's ...

New release of Tesseroids: command-line tools for gravity forward modeling in spherical coordinates!

This is a minor bug fix release.

#geophysics  
Tesseroids v1.1.1. Posted on Wed 12 February 2014 by Leonardo Uieda. Today I'm announcing a new release (v1.1.1) of my open-source software project Tesseroids. This is a minor bug fix release, so nothing has changed much since v1.1. See the changelog for details.

"If what we really want to see is optimal advancement of science, then open access to research means open access to as much as possible associated with the paper and not just the paper itself."

Upload all previous releases of my software Tesseroids to Zenodo: Done!

Now they each get their own DOI. So when citing in an article, you can now link using the http://dx.doi.org service. No more broken links! A better way to cite individual versions.

This month's The Leading Edge has a new section of #openaccess and #opensource tutorials started by +Matt Hall!

The tutorials are +Creative Commons licensed and available for free at the SEG Wiki upon publication. The tutorials use only open datasets and open-source tools. The code for Matts tutorial is in an +IPython notebook: http://nbviewer.ipython.org/github/seg/tutorials/blob/master/1402_Smoothing_surfaces.ipynb

This is a very important move toward open-access for the Society and hopefully the first of many!

Original article: http://library.seg.org/doi/abs/10.1190/tle33020128.1

Wiki edition: http://wiki.seg.org/wiki/Smoothing_surfaces_and_attributes
Several years ago I wrote an article about smoothing (Hall 2007). At the time I was aware of but unversed in the ways of reproducible science and open source software. So I offered to share my code, but it wasn't online. And it wasn't really code — it was a bunch of Landmark PowerCalculator ...

PLEASE NOTE: I will now return to science videos. I posted this video here because when I observe a blatant disregard for the truth I have to do something. I hope to prevent people from having the same experience I did.

How old is geoscience?

Great post about the early history of the Earth sciences.
