Driving Through the Most Dangerous Plate Boundary in the World: A Compilation of Fear(somely cool geology)

Geotripper [2015-07-05 07:19:00]   recommend this post  (335 visits)
Without a doubt, subduction zones are the most dangerous plate boundaries on the planet. Divergent plate boundaries produce earthquakes and occasional volcanoes, but nothing on the fearsome scale of the calderas and stratovolcanoes and magnitude 9 [...]

Theropoda [2015-07-05 16:08:00]   recommend this post  (334 visits)
Dei film di Jurassic Park si è detto molto. Molti di coloro che detestano l'idea che questi film siano un pretesto per parlare di scienza si ripiegano nel mantra acefalo del “è solo un film”. All'estremo opposto, quelli che credono che solo i [...]

Ladybird books are a firm favourite of mine, since (like many other Brits) I have very fond memories of learning to read with them as a child - not just those bought for me at the time, but also hand-me-downs, which were all the more special. Their [...]

Macropleura macropleura brachiopod from the Kalkberg formation of New York

If I may paraphrase the song "New York, New York" by Gerard Kenny, Macropleura is a brachiopod so nice, they named it twice! Macropleura macropleura is a large brachiopod and hard to mistake for something else in the Kalkberg formation. I've found [...]

I wanted to get my initial report on the Joni Mitchell conference out quickly. But since posting it, more thoughts have bubbled up through my mind. I’m thinking here mostly about how a humanities conference varies from a science one. Now of [...] | Impressum
