Weekend geoscience blog roundup

November 10, 2007

Because I can’t think of anything interesting to post about, here’s a real quick list of some other goings-on in the geoblogosphere this weekend.

  • I had been going through some Apparent Dip withdrawal … but, Thermochronic is back with a great post about everything you wanted to know regarding the mineral separation process but were afraid to ask. If you’ve ever done it, you’ll like the post. If you haven’t, but will in the future, you should read it.
  • A relatively new geoscience blog (at least new to me) is Rising to the Occasion, and has a great post about a rather odd e-mail exchange with a senior colleague.

I guess that’s it…i’m sure I missed something.  I need to go back to writing about what these dang rare earth element plots mean for Patagonian tectonic evolution.

    I have a question that has been on my mind for a while:

    What happens to the earth when we take out billions of tons of oil from it?
    Are the wholes left behind filled with something?
    Is there a risk of the emerging underground caves to collapse?
    Does it not alter the gravity balance of the earth within the sun system if the earth looses mass by the billion tons every year?

    Who would know?
