I have posted a minor update to FORCinel (Version 2.01). This has added one useful feature: VARIFORC now remembers the last set of smoothing parameters used. These are stored in the wave “last_sf_used”. When choosing “change smoothing factor”, the previously used parameters are automatically entered into the dialogue box, making it easier to make adjustments to the smoothing factors. Don’t forget, you can leave comments on the FORCinel page if you have any comments/feature requests.
On January 8th and 9th 2014 the NPM group hosted the Magnetic Interactions 2014 meeting – the annual gathering of researchers from the UK (and beyond) working on all aspects of magnetism in the Earth sciences. Several members of our group, including 4th year undergraduates Claire Nichols and Roberts Blukis, PhD student James Bryson, post doc Nono Lascu, and even the PI presented talks and posters on our recent research (see publications to download PDFs of some of these).
