You learn something new everyday. At least I hope you do. I learned something astounding revealed by satellite imagery of the Mojave Desert. We were headed home a week or two ago, and were taking a "short cut" along the San Andreas fault [...]

Just a week and a half ago (March 20-21, 2013) was the 62nd Annual Meeting of the Geological Society Southeastern Section, held in San Juan, Puerto Rico. This two day meeting was a great venue, not only to see some interesting presentations, but was [...]

Il est possible de créer des modèles numériques de terrain à partir de cartes topographiques numérisées. Pour cela, il faut d’abord importer un fond de carte topographique sous Qgis. Dans le cas présent nous avons importé un fond de [...]

Spring arrives in the Sierra Nevada Foothills (and a gratuitous mammal photo)

A long work week, and then another family gathering, this time in Porterville in the southern part of California's Great Valley. We couldn't resist the desire to see what was happening in the Sierra Nevada foothills, so we headed up a new road for [...]

A landslide occurred yesterday on Whidbey Island, USA. This post provides a brief overview of the event. Surprisingly little of the cliff top has been lost to date despite the size of the

A very pretty map

I really like how the topography and rivers show up on this map, but I wish it had a clearer key of the colors and of the black-outlined areas. Are they watersheds or political subdivisions. The flickr caption reads: “Map of the the Upper Tana [...]

Screening the Silica Shale for microfossils

Views of the Mahantango [2013-03-24 08:01:00]   recommend this post  (302 visits)
My next experiment with my new screen set was with a sample of eroded Silica Shale that I'd collected from an old dump bank near Sylvania, Ohio. Since the Silica Shale is contemporaneous with the Arkona formation I should find similar fossils. I had [...]

Here’s an update from the road–get ready for some crappy raw images, because that’s all I have the time or energy to post (with one exception). Here’s OMNH 1331. It’s just the slightly convex articular end off a big [...] | Impressum
