      The 1988 Spitak Earthquake with a magnitude of MS6.8 took the life of thousands of people and caused widespread devastation in Armenia. It also ruptured the surface and is one of the best-studied seismic events in the entire Caucasus region. 30 [...]

      India Physiography Rendition

      Reporting on a Revolution [2018-03-04 16:53:00]   recommend this post  (106 visits)
      I came across this physiography rendition of India via Simon Kuestemacher. The contrast between the Himalaya and the Indo-Gangetic plain is awesome. But I was struck by other features in the Peninsular region. 1) The E-W oriented linear [...]

      A piece of Active faults in New Zealand - 2: Three recent earthquakes in South Island

      Part of the PATA (Paleoseismology Active Tectonics Archeoseismology) Days fieldtrip was dedicated to the Alpine Fault (see this post). Here I present few words and many pictures dealing with the recent earthquakes that have shaken the South Island, [...]

      Arctic Sea Ice May Be About To Set Another Record Low

      Dan\'s Wild Wild Science Journal [2018-03-06 00:26:54]   recommend this post  (86 visits)
      Earth science community is all watching the Arctic sea ice right now. We are very close to the winter maximum extent, and it may very well be the lowest on record. The ice has grown slowly due to the incredibly warm temperatures across the region [...]

      2017 North American wildfire pollution comparable to moderate volcanic eruption

      AGU Meetings [2018-03-05 17:16:55]   recommend this post  (83 visits)
      A new study finds the fires that spread throughout North America last summer burned so powerfully their smoke pushed all the way into the stratosphere, circled the globe in roughly two weeks and remained in the stratosphere at measurable levels for [...]

      The Struggle for Life in a Harsh Desert: The Living Fossils of Fossil Falls

      Geotripper [2018-03-07 04:26:00]   recommend this post  (73 visits)
      Fossil Falls, the Bureau of Land Management site near Little Lake and south of Owens Valley, is one of the strangest sights in the California Desert. The ironic point of Fossil Falls is that it has neither fossils, nor does it have falls. It is the [...]
