A note to my readers
I’m going to be traveling and away from a computer for the next couple of weeks, so don’t expect any new posts until I return. There’s plenty of great stuff to read in the geoblogosphere these days (see feed on sidebar).
I still have several posts that are in various stages of completion (or in concept stage) that I hope to get out after I return:
A long-awaited follow-up to Theoretical Stratigraphy #1, in which I’ll discuss a couple classic papers from the early 20th century.
Last month, I mentioned how I was going to put together some posts talking about sediment gravity flow initiation mechanisms … when I started putting the first one together, I realized that I have never taken the time to put together a good reference post on sediment gravity flows themselves. So, that’s also in a draft state.
A paper I’m a co-author on about some deep-marine conglomeratic deposits in Patagonia is coming out in Sedimentology very soon (if you have access to their “early online articles”, which no one seems to have, you can get it here). Once it’s out for real, I’ll write up a blog summary of that as well.
A couple months ago, a reader asked if I would post about the landslide caught in the act on Mars. I’ve also been wanting to make some comments about the recent Geology paper by Pelletier et al. concerning the wet vs. dry flows on Mars debate. So, a post about recent Mars sedimentation events is also in the works.
Looks like I have a lot of work to do! Putting together good, “in-depth” posts takes a lot effort (as many of you know) and I’m finding it increasingly more difficult to find the time now that I’m not a graduate student. Stick with me though … I’ll get them out.
