It is the same one that OpenCV uses to findcontours. The code can be found here: https://github.com/sightmachine/SimpleCV/blob/develop/SimpleCV/Features/BlobMaker.py

Blob is actually a group information

In this case the information being pixels or color values

The Blob algorithm has to do with edge detection and there is an actual formula pertaining to that.
