This is the April edition of my paper round-up. Today I recommend papers on high-resolution topography data, fault mechanics, earthquake environmental/archaeological effects (liquefaction, rotated objects, landslides), Quaternary dating, a fault [...]

Streptelasma (Enterolasma) strictum ? coral from the Bois D'Arc formation of Oklahoma.

I can't find very much info on the corals that are found within the Bois D'Arc formation so I have been comparing what I found with similar examples from the Kalkberg formation of New York which is of equivalent age. I found numerous examples of a [...]

So this thing happened yesterday. California, despite near-normal amounts of precipitation this year, is still in the grip of a long-term drought. The first part of March was wet, but for the last three weeks the rain ceased entirely, like someone [...]

Small quake in Intermountain Seismic Belt south of Utah

Arizona Geology [2016-04-16 18:06:00]   recommend this post  (154 visits)
A small earthquake, magnitude 2.0 hit in the midst of the active faults of the Intermountain Seismic Belt at 4:28 a.m. Friday morning, just south of the Utah border.  This does not appear to be related to the earthquake swarm of the past couple of [...]

Scientific Conferences on a Budget

The Way of the Geophysicist [2016-04-10 16:36:36]   recommend this post  (153 visits)
Conferences are an important part of the world of science and technology. We get to publish preliminary results and bounce them off of our colleagues (or sometimes strongest competitors). It’s time for networking and also helps to take a break [...]

Living the Dream, Day 5 – Granite Gorge and The Great Unknown

WATCH FOR ROCKS - Travels of a Sharp-Eyed Geologist [2016-04-10 00:05:47]   recommend this post  (146 visits)
We huddle together, this early May day, on a 12–person (14, if you include the guides) inflatable J–rig party boat that glides through the rapids with relative ease. We are ready for whatever thrill these cold riffles and rapids offer, so [...]

A great many dreams lie broken in the rock and gravel expanses of Death Valley National Park. The California Gold Rush had brought hundreds of thousands of people to the state in the 1850s, and though few of them ever actually became rich, there was [...]
