binder SimPEG


The em-apps were created principally for the DISC 2017, the SEG Distinguished Instructor Short Course about Electromagnetics Fundamentals and Applications. The apps are currently only sparsely maintained, and depend therefore on older versions of most requirements.

The recommended way of installation is therefore using conda together with the environment.yml file, see below. This environment will install many old versions of codes, so don't expect to be able to use that environment with your newest tool; rather, it will be a dedicated environment for these apps.


This is a repo of notebooks and interactive examples for The examples are based on code available in em_examples. Numerical simulations are based on SimPEG.


To run them locally, you will need to have python installed, preferably through miniconda or mamba forge.

You can then clone this repository. From a command line, run

git clone

Then cd into em-apps

cd em-apps

To setup your software environment, we recommend you use the provided conda environment

conda env create -f environment.yml
conda activate geosci-labs

You can then launch Jupyter

jupyter notebook

Jupyter will then launch in your web-browser.

Running the notebooks

Each cell of code can be run with shift + enter or you can run the entire notebook by selecting cell, Run All in the toolbar.


For more information on running Jupyter notebooks, see the Jupyter Documentation


If you run into problems or bugs, please let us know by creating an issue in this repository.
