I’ve Never Seen Hail Like This Before

Rain drops and hail stones need something to form around, and we refer to this as condensation nuclei. The image below shows something else though. A tornado in the Texas panhandle last night picked up stalks of corn, and lifted them high into the [...]

A shallow Mw6.5 earthquake hit western Greece today in the morning. The quake had a right-lateral strike-slip mechanism and occurred at the Cephalonia transform, offshore Levkada. Two people died and some damage to buildings was reported. The event [...]

 Northwest Arizona had its fifth and sixth small earthquakes in the last week and a half, today just before noon. A magnitude 2.9 event at 11:48 a.m., local time was followed ten minutes later by a magnitude 1.5 quake very close by that was likely [...]

Hitting a nerve with popular posts

I blog here a few times a week, when I can manage it. Mostly I focus on new things I discover on field trips, advances in geologic imagery, and structural geology.  I get about 500 readers per day. But occasionally I write about other things, like [...]

2.0% of the Tuolumne River Story, Courtesy of the Tuolumne River Trust. And 8-foot-long Saber-toothed Salmon!

Standing on the Dana Fork, close to the headwaters of the Tuolumne River in January of 2012 (when no snow had yet fallen) Rivers often get used as a metaphor for life. Writers might compare the exuberance of youth with the dancing streams and [...]

A Day in Milford Sound, New Zealand

As long as I can remember, I have known about the Milford Track near Milford Sound. In the 1970's, it seems like lot's of Americans who loved trails and long hikes would talk about a fantastically beautiful trail located on New Zealand's South [...]

I’m fifteen days into NaNoWriMo, and have written twenty one thousand words. That’s a world record for me, although I won’t hide that I’m jealous of people who have already broken fifty thousand. Yes, I am a little bit behind [...]

A most directive Oklahoma earthquake - M4.3

This is at the far end of the zone, basically in a new area for the larger earthquakes.  It blasted in one direction only, typical NE.  Some stations recorded it as a 5.4.  I think it is closer to a 5 in terms of energy, so that really puts up [...]
