Ah. Very glad you asked. You see, I'd like to introduce you to one of my favorite geologic spots in the known universe. Let me show you my first sight of it:That was my first glimpse of a coastal bluff made of glacial sediments...
All right, yes, I've been very neglectful lately, but when you see what I've brought back from the field for ye, you'll forgive me. Probably. If you like garnets, certainly.B and I returned to Icicle Gorge last weekend and did the whole loop trail...
I'm back with more yummy geology. Literally yummy. This is geology you can really sink your teeth in to (as long as you brush them after).We're not talking that ginger licking of a rock and perhaps nibble on a corner that geologists sometimes do to determine what they're dealing with...
I had the great good fortune this weekend to meet Anne Jefferson and Chris Rowan at last. It was quite the adventure! Check it out at En Tequila Es Verdad - it's fantastic enough with three amazing geologists (with me as chauffeur), but the yellowjacket attack makes it that much more exciting...
Yes, fireworks are mostly chemistry and physics - but these beautiful light shows wouldn't be possible without geology, too!
Can you believe it's been over a year since we embarked upon Mount St. Helens madness? And we're not even done with the lateral blast yet! We have pyroclastic flows, ash clouds, and lahars yet to come, but in the meantime, for those who wish to either catch up or review the series to date, I present to you all the links ...
The Geokittehs blog and our own Rosetta Stones made the New York Times , you guys! I wouldn't believe it, only it made the print edition, too, and I've spent an unmentionable amount of time running down copies...
We've done Pompeii a few times round here. We had a nice, long, serious post, and then we had a bit of a sing-song. You could even sing along if you knew Latin.Now, courtesy of Coreen Tyers, we have got this: I don't even.....
You love kittens, right? Who doesn't! And kittens are especially hard to resist when they illustrate neat geological concepts.Kirby and Luna belong to my friend B, and they are killer cute...
Did you know you can illustrate geology with food? It's true! And tasty. Just about every foodstuff can be dragooned in the interests of education - you're limited only by your imagination and the concept you wish to illustrate...
