How will we deal with the hordes of people from the U.S. trying to invade our borders? Our trip, the Northern Convergence tour, was not over, but the time had come to cross the border back into the United States from Canada. The trip thus far had been an eye-opener. We had been exploring the "crowded" part of Canada in British Columbia and Alberta, but the land itself exuded wildness

More Effecient Drilling From Fewer Pads 

Geology.com News [2014-10-19 14:53:37]  recommend  recommend this post  (25 visits) info
Developments in drilling methods and technology are leading to efficiency gains for oil and natural gas producers. For example, “pad” drilling techniques allow rig operators to drill groups of wells more efficiently, because improved rig mobility reduces the time it takes to move from one well location to the next, while reducing the overall surface

It is that time of the year age when Saturday mornings and early afternoons are taken up with a visit to the movie house in Coquitlam and another MET opera.  Unusually sunny start to the season.  Still just cool enough to feel good to head indoors and settle back to opera. Today was Mozart’s The

The recent eruption of Mt Ontake, Japan tragically killed at least 50 hikers who were on the volcano at the time. Within hours of the eruption taking place, social media was flooded with first-hand video footage illustrating just how close many survivors came to perishing in an onrushing pyroclastic flow. Despite having a sophisticated seismic

Geography through time: doctoral dissertation trends

How has the discipline of Geography changed over time? David Kaplan and Jennifer Mapes - two professors from Kent State University - are analyzing geography dissertation titles from the past 125 years or so to explore this question. Inside Higher Ed posted an article a few weeks ago describing the professors' research and some of their preliminary findings. Keep an eye out for an early 2015 article on their research in Geographical Review!Original post blogged on

Well, OK, so there is the occasional heavy rainstorm, but this is upland Britain for goodness sake... Sunday is the 3 peaks cyclocross race, traditionally a cold and rainy mudfest.

In the low desert of southern Utah these days, when mid–September temperatures not only approach triple digits but also have the audacity to linger there, it is time to head to the high country for a hike along the redrock near Cedar Breaks National Monument. It never hurts to bring along a few friends. Judy points out the blazes, so we must be going in the right direction. Soon views emerge of Cedar Breaks and the 50–million–year–old lake and river deposits of the Claron Formation. [...]
