From Smallest of Clues, Flying Reptiles Reborn: Natural History Museum Explores the Wonders of Pterosaurs

Utah Geological Survey - blog [2014-04-14 17:34:27]   recommend this post  (262 visits) About 220 million years ago, as we learn at a thoroughly entrancing new exhibition at the American Museum of Natural History, a fish caught a pterosaur, chewed it up and spit out the pieces. The expelled mass eventually fossilized, [...]

Wooster’s Fossil of the Week: An unusual scleractinian coral from the Upper Cretaceous of Israel

Wooster Geologists [2014-04-13 07:17:56]   recommend this post  (92 visits)
Originally this was going to be a mystery fossil for a crowd-sourced identification while I’m here in Israel doing fieldwork, but through the wonders of the internet I finally found a match for the strange fossil above: it is the scleractinian [...]

I added a couple of new papers to my literature collection last week. The studies deal with trenching in Iran and in China, tsunami research in Japan, Malta and Thailand, with archaeoseismology in Italy, and with seismic hazard of old … [...]

Bruce Black Hole gets into geoscience

Reference I didn't even read the response, it would probably make me barf.  Anyway the panel went nuts on stress measurement.  Hello!  The reason this is the worst rock in the world is the fact that it has no stress!  It's right on top of the [...]

Great stereonet applications

Structural Geology Blog [2014-04-15 00:52:35]   recommend this post  (58 visits)
Stereonet plotting programs are extremely valuable, particularly to those of us that are collecting field data. I have enjoyed using my iPhone app (GeoID) to collect geo-tagged measurements over the last year or two, and being able to easily import [...]

More is said about mine closure than is done about mine closure.  Will they ever close Giant and Faro?  I doubt it.  Still if the topic interests you, here a few upcoming events. The InfoMine Mine Closure Conference in Belo Horizonte promises [...]

Article Yet the report added that "the majority, but not all, of the recent earthquakes appear to be the result of natural stresses, since they are consistent with the regional Oklahoma natural stress field." I'm totally convinced that [...]

The drought in California is horrific. It is quite probably the worst drought in centuries, but we received a slight respite in the form of showers and snow during the last part of March and early April. It was a drop in the bucket towards relieving [...] | Impressum
