Have you tried the ELI 'Mini-world water cycle; a water cycle demonstration model in a box'? Make a sandy ‘beach’ in the box and add the shallow ‘sea’. Switch on the lamp (‘Sun’) and wait for a few minutes for the water to become warm (or ‘cheat’ by adding warm water from the kettle). Add the freezer pack to cause the effect of cooling air which will form ‘clouds’. After a time, the

Being the guest lecturer on a geology trip is great, especially if you get to talk about your favorite geologic features. But what does one do when volcanology day is over and it's time for the students to do a moraine mapping project? Naturally, sit on a convenient rock and observe some lovely lava

Pholadella radiata pelecypod from the Ludlowville formation of New York

 Devonian; RU,US,IN
The diversity of pelecypods that are found within the Devonian aged (Givetian stage) Moscow formation is pretty amazing. At a time when brachiopods were still somewhat dominant, pelecypods had become a strong part of the ecosystem in their own way. That is why I love it when I find another species that I've never seen before. Pholadella radiata is the muse of this post and is a nicely decorated shell that reminds me of the extant Arcidae family of shells. The specimens I found are all small, [...]

Layer upon layer of sand, clay and silt, cemented together over time to form the sedimentary units of the Badlands National Park in South Dakota, USA. The sediments, delivered by rivers and streams that criss-crossed the landscape, accumulated over a period of millions of years, ranging from the late Cretaceous Period (67 to 75 million years ago) throughout to the Oligocene Epoch (26 to 34 million years ago). Interbedded greyish volcanic ash layers, sandstones deposited in ancient river [...]

Flood Threat Growing for Texas

There is growing concern that a tropical cyclone may be forming in the Gulf tonight, and it will likely impact the Texas coast by late Monday. This system will probably not have time to reach hurricane strength but it does not matter since the threat is heavy flooding rains. While it will probably cross the coast well SW of Houston the heavy rains may affect the entire Texas coast, and

National Driller magazine had a nice article not to long ago interviewing Kord Wissman about his transition from consulting to contracting. Kord is the President of Geopier Foundation Company (owned by Tensar). He has some very interesting insights, it's worth the read. I admire Kord as well for his involvement with the Geo-Institute and the GBA, he is very generous with his time and talents, more of us should be like him!
