Chicken. No head. Running.

September 4, 2007

It’s been one of those days. I’m leaving for a trip tomorrow and needed to get a bunch of things done before stepping on the plane. Of course, I waited until the last minute to do some most of it. Hmmm…I did get the first The Accretionary Wedge out though.

I’m trying to get a draft of a paper to my co-authors…it’s finally almost there. I’m pretty excited, it’s the work related to this email. I blogged about this research a long time ago (back in February for Just Science Week), but it as gotten a lot more exciting since then. Hopefully I’ll have some time when I return from this trip to write a post about it. It involves El Niño’s, earthquakes, beach erosion, radiocarbon ages, and…everybody’s favorite…turbidites!

After this trip, I come back for a few days and then go out of town again…so September might be a slow month for Clastic Detritus.

    Oh man. I read your title and came looking for the YouTube video. (I’ve heard about those things, and was curious. :)

    On an unrelated topic, it good to see your getting some work done.

    I guess that’s what happens when you are trying to write…it’s way to easy to “take a break” and screw around on the internets or the google.

    hey Thermochronic…I think you oughtta start writing a series of science fiction novellas about the thermochronocracy
