Geoblogosphere week in review (June 21-27, 2010)
Some posts from the geoscience blogosphere last week highlighting some interesting writing:
- Michael Welland from Through the Sandglass writes about how the amazing amoeba-like microbe Difflugia, which fashions its shell out sand, inspires sculpture artists.
- Chris Rowan from Highly Allocthonous explains the magnitude 5.0 earthquake in the middle of the North American plate (near Ottawa, Canada) last week.
- Garry Hayes from Geotripper discusses the issue of removing serpentinite as the official state rock of California because of misunderstood fears regarding the relationship of the mineral serpentine to harmful forms of asbestos.
- Suvrat Kher from Rapid Uplift asks the rest of the geoblogosphere to participate in a sedimentary basins meme — and kicks it off by writing about the Proterozoic Cuddapah Basin in India.
- Silver Fox from Looking For Detachment continues her series about traveling around the deserts and mountains of Nevada to find a thesis area.
