How do you read the literature? Thoughts on academic maturation

The Open Source Paleontologist [2011-09-02 15:30:00]   recommend this post  (656 visits)
How much should you trust the scientific literature? Reflecting on my own academic maturation, as well as observing on-line discussions of dinosaur paleontology for over 15 years (yikes, I'm getting old!), I have concluded that most of us pass [...]

Design basis exceeded for North Anna nuclear plant

Ontario-geofish [2011-08-29 22:34:00]   recommend this post  (408 visits)
Article That's an absolute "For Sure".  When an M5 happened near the Perry nuclear plant, the design basis was exceeded, based on the crappy definition.  The horrible scratch plates went through the roof, as they will be found to have [...]

Where does Singapore come from?

This may seem at first glance a stupid question, and the answer – Cambodia – even sillier. But it’s a fact. The tiny island nation of Singapore is home to a booming economy and the growth that goes along

Truly cool! Black hole devours a star!

Black hole just about finished munching on wayward star!NASA Swift satellite. NASA Goddard Space Flight Center Terrestrial natural disasters don't seem so bad after you watch what happened to the wayward star that got too close to a black hole [...]

Virginia Earthquake - Fin

Ontario-geofish [2011-08-29 01:26:00]   recommend this post  (394 visits)
It was a wonderful earthquake, and like most eastern earthquakes before it, we learned absolutely nothing. The aftershock sequence seems entirely normal, so I wouldn't be saying anything unless I saw the events creeping towards the old seismic [...]

Is This Tropical Storm Katia??

Dan\'s Wild Wild Science Journal [2011-08-29 00:10:05]   recommend this post  (355 visits)
The track/intensity models are indicating development, but hint at a real possibility of an eventual NW track before it approaches North America. I suspect it will be upgraded to a named storm within 36 hours. The next 2 weeks are the most active of [...]

Irene Pounding The Mid Atlantic Coast

Dan\'s Wild Wild Science Journal [2011-08-28 02:09:48]   recommend this post  (353 visits)
The image on the right is from NOAA/AOML and shows a very large wind field around Irene. The latest NWP models continue to show a track near New York and Boston, but while Irene is a minimal hurricane the large wind field will cause significant [...]

New paper on the post-depositional changes of Tsunamites

Paleoseismicity [2011-08-31 18:09:30]   recommend this post  (346 visits)
A new paper published in Natural Hazards today discusses post-depositional changes of tsunamites. At sites in Thailand covered by sediments of the 2004 Sumatra tsunami, Szczuciński (2011) has documented significant changes in the deposits over the [...]

From NASA’s Aqua satellite. Taken with the MODIS sensor which has channels in the wavelengths of red, green, and blue light, so it’s true colour. Click for the HUGE “print that puppy and slap it on the wall”
