Episode 0 - “Hello World!”

In this episode, we discuss what this podcast is, who we are, and wrap up our conference travels. We also throw out our nominations for this week’s “Fun Paper Friday.”

The Podcast

We’ll be discussing: - Recent news/discoveries in geoscience - Technology that helps get the job done - Interviews with leaders in the field or interesting people - Conference stories - Bantering about any geo vs. tech topic - #FunPaperFriday articles

This podcast is for anyone working in, interested in, or vaguely associated with the Earth sciences. As Click and Clack the Tappet Brothers would say, we will often discuss things “unencumbered by the thought process.”

Who we are

John Leeman and Shannon Dulin, meteorology and geology geeks.

Winter Conference Wrap-Up

GSA - Vancouver, BC

  • Woolard Award winner-using paleomagnetism and continental reconstructions to determine how extinctions occurred.
  • Digital poster sessions integrating google earth and structural geology
  • Digital posters showing how drones are becoming more used to bring geology to students

AGU - San Francisco, CA

  • Nearly 24,000 people, about 30% students!
  • Interesting talks on friction as a fracture process, coaxial cable Bragg grating strain-meters, and slow-slip being stopped by earthquakes in NZ.
  • John co-chaired a student pop-up session and presented both science and a fun talk on using sensors in education. You can build a copy of his 3D Compass.

#FunPaperFriday

John’s Paper - Frostquakes in New England - Barosh (2000), especially relevant after the mysterious booms reported in Oklahoma last week. Frostquakes have caused ground fracture before.

Shannon’s Paper - (Okay, not a paper, but a cool website from me this week!) http://scieastereggs.tumblr.com/
