Big changes are afoot for Eruptions - I'm on the move. After a year here at Big Think, I've decided to move the blog to Wired Science. Needless to say, I am very appreciative to Big Think for hosting me for the last year. It was an exciting year for [...]

Satellite images often make ground features more obvious. Here is a satellite image (Google Map) of the noth-western part of the Danish island Anholt. It shows nicely how coastal erosion (retreat) and progradation go hand in hand. To the east is a [...]
