Last Friday the RAS held a discussion meeting on Tectonics from Above: Recent Advances in the Use of High-resolution Topography and Imagery in London. Almost the entire Cambridge Tectonics Group went there and I absolutely enjoyed the meeting and [...]

Homo rex

Theropoda [2015-03-15 09:12:00]   recommend this post  (179 visits)
Ispirato dal precedente post, ecco un breve post totalmente demenziale, nel quale il solito antropocentrismo nell'illustrare Tyrannosaurus è stato rovesciato: in base al ben più nobile tyrannosaurocentrismo, ho illustrato Homo. Eccolo, con [...]

A Brief Season of Hope, But Dashed Hopes for a Better Year. Some Thoughts on the California Drought

Geotripper [2015-03-15 07:23:00]   recommend this post  (160 visits)
It's such a beautiful moment in time, being able to travel through the Sierra Nevada foothills, and seeing the glorious splash of color across the hillsides. The flower show was among the best I've seen in years. It wasn't necessarily good that [...]

¿Dijimos ictiosaurio-tortuga? ¡Mejor ictiosaurio-pelícano!

Dinosaurios (el cuaderno de Godzillín) [2015-03-17 15:48:00]   recommend this post  (159 visits)
Bueno, bueno... tenemos que reconocer que en el titular de esta entrada se nos ha ido un poco la mano y nos hemos puesto sensacionalistas (y anda que no hemos criticado aquí veces los titulares de prensa...). ¿Y esto por qué? Porque una vez más, [...]

Major Slope Failure at Yeager Airport in West Virginia

There was a significant slope failure at the Yeager Airport near Charleston, West Virginia last week. A 2005 project to create an Engineered Material Arresting System (EMAS) at the end of the runway required a massive reinforced soil structure [...]

On the Edge of the Sahara: a guest post by Ann Lingard

Through the Sandglass [2015-03-18 17:34:50]   recommend this post  (155 visits)
At the edge of the Sahara, I stood for a while and watched a dune move. It pushed out its toes, testing the flat ground in front of it; a small trickle of sand cascaded down the lee side

Paleoseismicity [2015-03-18 10:19:59]   recommend this post  (152 visits)
What’s new in paleoseismology and active tectonics research? Here’s my latest digest of some recently published  papers. As always, please feel free to point out ones that I’ve missed. Jusseret, S. (2014). Earthquake Archaeology: [...]

Willow Cones

In the Company of Plants and Rocks [2015-03-15 16:20:00]   recommend this post  (152 visits)
It was time to do something about all the cones on the willows along the river.  They’re so common; some trees are covered in them!  People notice, and I’ve been asked many times what they are.  I knew they weren’t really [...]

Movies have teasers. Books have sample chapters. And for fossils, there are photos of “unnamed taxa” in presentations

Delthyris sculptilis brachiopod from the Centerfield Fm.

Views of the Mahantango [2015-03-15 08:01:00]   recommend this post  (146 visits)
Today's fossil is Delthyris sculptilis which is an appropriate name due to the high relief and heavy decoration on the shell. D. sculptilis has a long hinge line connecting the pedicle and brachial valves. Each valve is deeply incised by plications [...]
