Brandenburg's university budget will shrink

Brandenburg's unviersities will get less money in the next years, despite a slight increase in the ministry's budget. That's because pension and other costs will rise even more. That's a rather dark perspective, especially for the universities here [...]

Ways and Means

Accretionary Wedge #43 has the theme of “my favorite geological illustration.” Hollis chose this theme at my urging based on her post about one of the spectacular old “birds-eye” oblique views of Black Hills geology. There [...]

Not a fossil

Dave Hone’s Archosaur Musings [2012-02-27 09:10:37]   recommend this post  (283 visits)
One occupational hazard of being a palaeontologist is that it’s quite a rare field to be in and yet fossils animals and especially dinosaurs are familiar to the public. Thus odd rocks and cattle bones can, to the untrained eye, look very [...]

What’s all this then?

Dave Hone’s Archosaur Musings [2012-03-03 22:51:26]   recommend this post  (262 visits)
Well at least of what it is should be pretty obvious based on the picture (which comes courtesy of and copyright to Brett Booth, of Carnosauria fame). I’ll be explaining all more fully as soon as I get the time, but after having been sitting [...]

Geo Video: An den Schicksalsklüften

Unter Vulkanologen geht der Spruch um, dass nur hoffnungslose Optimisten unter ihnen  in eine Altersvorsorge einzahlen. Und das nur schlechte Vulkanologen in den Genuss einer Rente kommen. Wenn man sich den Vulkanologen im unteren Video [...]

Geo-Video: Der Mond in 2012

Bei Bad Astronomy habe ich ein ziemlich cooles Video gefunden. Es zeigt den Mond, wie er sich in diesem Jahr präsentiert. Und zwar für jede Stunde, mit der exakten Mondphase und der Libration, die man auf dem Video sehr gut beobachten [...]

Strangers in a Strange Land: What stories can the stones tell?

What does a cartoon tell us? I remember a time when at least certain cartoons had the purpose of communicating an important moral or story at a level that could be understood by anyone (and then there were the other 99% that represented empty brain [...]

This week, we’ve been uploading clips from Richard Thomas’ film ‘Dan McKenzie and friends’, which looks at the early history of the theory of plate tectonics. It’s easy to forget that plate tectonics, an idea [...]

More Activity at Salton Sea (Salton Buttes) California

The Salton Sea is shaking. Over the last few weeks, many very shallow tremors have been occurring on the fault line that runs through this SE California farming town. The largest events so far have been around 3.5 in magnitude, and are clustering [...] | Impressum
