Serpentinite and California’s state rock
Starting today I will be doing weekly posts for the San Francisco Bay Area public TV/radio station KQED’s community science blog. They produce a television program called QUEST that highlights greater Bay Area science and scientists and have a fantastic companion website with interactive maps, video reports, writing, and more. While my posts for QUEST will certainly have a local spin to them, I hope the greater geoscience readership will enjoy them.
My first post won’t be news to most of my regular readers — it covers some of the basic facts about serpentinite that have already been blogged/written about by Garry Hayes at Geotripper, Andrew Alden at About.com, Silver Fox at Looking for Detachment and many others on Twitter (use #CAserpentine to see the latest). The point of the post was to communicate fundamental information to a slightly broader audience and the work and advocacy of my fellow geoscience bloggers made this a relatively easy task. Thank you!
