Last September, my report on a day out in Java was illustrated with the output from my new Sony a55 digital SLR camera (although strictly, it’s not an SLR because it uses Sony’s remarkable translucent mirror technology) – it’s

Katla volcano in Iceland has been showing more harmonic tremor pulses as well as minor earthquake swarms within the caldera. This has been typical of Katla for almost a year now ever since it's very minor eruption in mid 2011. Icelandic scientists [...]

Santorum, Mining, and Abortion

Rick Santorum could conceivably be the next president.  I hope not, but it is not my choice. I would prefer Ron Paul; at least I agree with him fifty percent of the time.  Santorum may have a father, or was it grandfather who was miner.  But I [...]

The cost to attend the South African Mining Indaba was R12,000.  So there was another meeting called Alternative Mining Indaba.  A report on that conference is at this link.  The report is long and convoluted.  I have difficulty in working out [...]

New M.A.G.I.C. GigaPans are shown of two connected Hawaiian samples: one an igneous rock, one a loose beach sand. How could thematically-linked images like these be used to further geoscience education? Got any ideas? Chime
