Geoblogosphere week in review (July 12-July 18, 2010)

July 19, 2010

Here are several posts from the geoscience blogosphere last week highlighting some interesting writing:

  • Ole Nielsen from olelog reviews global oceanic circulation within the context of a new study that addresses what might have happened to this system at the end of the Last Glacial Maximum some 15,000 years ago.
  • Erik Klemetti of Eruptions is out in the field, but keeps the excellent volcanology related posts going with guest blogger Ed Kohut who writes two great posts about the Mariana Islands (part 1 and part 2).
  • Kyle House of Geologic Froth writes about some recent mapping of the Bill Williams River in Arizona with a series of spectacular maps showing off how dynamic this river system is.
  • Michael Welland of Through the Sandglass continues his great writing about the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster with a post about the possibility of oil-consuming microbes that live in the sand onshore.
  • David Bressan of History of Geology posts about some of the first documented uses of forensic geology in the investigations of crimes.

Last, but certainly not least, is the past week’s events on the California serpentinite issue. If you’ve been living under a rock and don’t know what I’m talking about — the California state legislature has decided to spend their time and taxpayer resources on whether or not to remove serpentinite as the official state rock.
