Last Friday the RAS held a discussion meeting on Tectonics from Above: Recent Advances in the Use of High-resolution Topography and Imagery in London. Almost the entire Cambridge Tectonics Group went there and I absolutely enjoyed the meeting and [...]

A Brief Season of Hope, But Dashed Hopes for a Better Year. Some Thoughts on the California Drought

Geotripper [2015-03-15 07:23:00]   recommend this post  (65 visits)
It's such a beautiful moment in time, being able to travel through the Sierra Nevada foothills, and seeing the glorious splash of color across the hillsides. The flower show was among the best I've seen in years. It wasn't necessarily good that [...]

On the Edge of the Sahara: a guest post by Ann Lingard

Through the Sandglass [2015-03-18 17:34:50]   recommend this post  (48 visits)
At the edge of the Sahara, I stood for a while and watched a dune move. It pushed out its toes, testing the flat ground in front of it; a small trickle of sand cascaded down the lee side

What’s new in paleoseismology and active tectonics research? Here’s my latest digest of some recently published  papers. As always, please feel free to point out ones that I’ve missed. Jusseret, S. (2014). Earthquake Archaeology: [...]

Homo rex

Theropoda [2015-03-15 09:12:00]   recommend this post  (44 visits)
Ispirato dal precedente post, ecco un breve post totalmente demenziale, nel quale il solito antropocentrismo nell'illustrare Tyrannosaurus è stato rovesciato: in base al ben più nobile tyrannosaurocentrismo, ho illustrato Homo. Eccolo, con [...]

Willow Cones

In the Company of Plants and Rocks [2015-03-15 16:20:00]   recommend this post  (44 visits)
It was time to do something about all the cones on the willows along the river.  They’re so common; some trees are covered in them!  People notice, and I’ve been asked many times what they are.  I knew they weren’t really [...]

On This Day in 1980: Mount St. Helens Awakes!

Rosetta Stones [2015-03-15 11:18:10]   recommend this post  (43 visits)
Don’t worry, Mount St. Helens isn’t exploding right at the moment (*sadface*). But if you’ll step into the Vulcan Mark III TimeMachine with me, we’ll go watch her wake up!... -- Read more on ScientificAmerican.com

Delthyris sculptilis brachiopod from the Centerfield Fm.

Views of the Mahantango [2015-03-15 08:01:00]   recommend this post  (41 visits)
Today's fossil is Delthyris sculptilis which is an appropriate name due to the high relief and heavy decoration on the shell. D. sculptilis has a long hinge line connecting the pedicle and brachial valves. Each valve is deeply incised by plications [...]

What are the Most Important Geologic Roadcuts in California? A Candidate in Coulterville

In a recent post, I explored the geology of the Charlie Brown outcrop. It included excellent examples of normal faults, welded tuff, and airfall tuff, features that served as a microcosm of the geology of the entire province. I was on a field trip [...]

¿Dijimos ictiosaurio-tortuga? ¡Mejor ictiosaurio-pelícano!

Dinosaurios (el cuaderno de Godzillín) [2015-03-17 15:48:00]   recommend this post  (37 visits)
Bueno, bueno... tenemos que reconocer que en el titular de esta entrada se nos ha ido un poco la mano y nos hemos puesto sensacionalistas (y anda que no hemos criticado aquí veces los titulares de prensa...). ¿Y esto por qué? Porque una vez más, [...]
