A Different Kind of "Snow" in California, and a Coming World of Hurt

Geotripper [2015-02-26 09:29:00]   recommend this post  (287 visits)
 There is a different kind of snow falling in California right now. It might look vaguely like that cold stuff that has been falling back east, but the resemblance stops at "white". The almond orchards of the Great Valley have been [...]

Defensive use of the tail in monitors – and also sauropods?

Sauropod Vertebra Picture of the Week [2015-02-23 00:44:47]   recommend this post  (265 visits)
One thing that I’ve never understood is why some people are skeptical about sauropods using their tails defensively, when lizards do this all the time. I’ve been digging through the literature on this for a current project, and there are [...]

The bottom of Death Valley is the driest place in North America, and the hottest place in the world. It might stand to reason that it is a place that withstands the effects of California's horrific four-year drought, which is true, but it's not [...]
