Both in open access journals:Taohelong jinchengensis n.g. n.sp. Yang et al., 2013A polacanthine known from partial postcrania (caudal vertebrae, dorsal ribs, left ilium, and armor plates). The authors provide what I believe is the first phylogenetic definition of the Polacanthinae (clade containing Polacanthus but not Ankylosaurus or Panoplosaurus) and their phylogenetic analysis places Taohelong as the sister to Polacanthus. Unfortunately, the article is in Chinese, so other details [...]
The Financial Post has an article (and a shocking image) that describe Shell’s Prelude project – the world’s largest floating vessel and the first ocean-based LNG plant. It will be stationed off the coast of western Australia. Related: What is
Just in time for Christmas, I have started a new series, which may end at one.
According to this article, the situation is bad. Lucky for us, I can't extract very much from behind the pay-wall, but I'll take it that most of the foundations are loose alluvial deposits. Now, Lima has been exposed to many earthquakes over the last decades, but no big one that can produce a steady 20 cm/s,
Perhaps you’ve heard of Bertha, the World’s Largest Tunnel Boring Machine or TBM? She’s currently working her way underneath Downtown Seattle, excavating the Alaska Way Bored Tunnel to replace the aging Alaska Way Viaduct. This $2 Billion megaproject is an incredible feat of engineering on so many levels. I was in Seattle in September for the Association of Engineering Geologists annual meeting, and was fortunate enough to attend a field trip to see the launch pit and Bertha [...]

The San Antonio Business Journal has an article that describes how pipeline capacity is throttling production from the Eagle Ford Shale of Texas and the Bakken Formation of North Dakota. Related: What is the Eagle Ford
This article is reblogged from Lee Allison’s http://arizonageology.blogspot.com/ The Arizona Mining Association reports that “Mining activity in 2012 generated $4.8 billion in total income for workers, business and property owners, and governments across Arizona, as well as, accounting for 12,100 direct jobs through the payrolls of mining companies. Indirectly, mining generated an additional 40,000 jobs
The Gemological Institute of America has an article with five videos and a photo gallery that gives you a “behind the scenes” look at the Smithsonian Gem and Mineral
Doubtless those of you who are interested in science careers have seen the many offended blog posts prompted by that fairly ill-considered Forbes article about how professors/academics have the most laid-back jobs because they only teach one or two classes a semester. After getting my hysterical laughter under control, I started thinking about all the comments where people describe how their typical academic day. I'm certainly not surprised by the long descriptions of everything that has to get [...]
This article on FarmAndDairy.com contains a few summary sentences for several shale drilling companies in the Marcellus and Utica
Bloomberg has an article that summarizes some of the efforts to produce oil and natural gas from shale outside of the United States. Some of these countries lack the equipment and expertise to develop the wells and are forming agreements with experienced
The Ring of Fire is a mining district in Northern Ontario. Stan Sudol who writes the blog Republic of Mining brought to my attention a series of article on his blog about The Ring of Fire. The link provided gets you to more links to a series of articles on the mines and mining potential
(Note: this is a the first try at a “stub” article about ongoing volcanic activity. Feel free to add additional information and comments after the post). The eruption at Sinabung has continued to intensify over the last week. The latest
More earthquakes today. I remember in the old days when the Sudbury smelter was killing everything, the debate was between Jobs and Life. And the smoking debate also had a jobs component.
Now we have this poor guy, whose every statement has to have a weasel word of 'not definite'. Usually people do this to get more money, but there isn't any down there. The only jobs in OK are
Rotten seismic instrumentation has led to great confusion. On one hand the USGS says it is a single blast, but they can't even locate it right. This led to people blaming one quarry, when it was another. The area is thick with quarries. Also, it was first reported by some as a 3.8, now a 3.2.
Inspectors are crawling all over the place, but what can they tell? Suppose, the
Lythronax argestes, a new species of tyrannosaur from Utah, was published yesterday in a PLOS One article by Mark Loewen and colleagues. Press release here. Really an amazing amount of art released with this new dinosaur: skeletal reconstructions by Scott Hartman, skulls and portrait by Lukas Panzarin, animal-in-environment by Andrey Atuchin, and sculpted bust by
USA Today has an article that describes what some universities are doing to attract women who plan to major in STEM fields and how they are working to interest other women in STEM
The police chief added: “As a citizen of Toronto I’m disappointed. It’s an issue of significant public concern.”
I mean, really, this was a criminal accusation, and we all know what any politician would do when backed into a corner, with nothing else to say.
I'm not a crook.
I don't know the definition of 'sex'.
I didn't know what
The Telegraph has an article with photos that explains how Royal Dutch Shell is building the Prelude, the world’s first floating liquefied natural gas facility. It will be stationed on the western coast of Australia preparing LNG that will be sold in Asian markets. It will weigh six times as much as the largest aircraft
An article in Nature suggests that Eucalyptus trees might translocate gold from the ground and into their leaves, making them potentially useful in gold
It shouldn’t come as a huge surprise to regular readers that PeerJ is Matt’s and my favourite journal. Reasons include its super-fast turnaround, beautiful formatting that doesn’t look like a facsimile of 1980s printed journals, and its responsiveness to authors and readers. But the top reason is undoubtedly its openness: not only are the article
