A bibliography of seismic events

A bibliography of seismic events

Search for previous scientific work is never an easy task. Thanks to the internet and good search engines such as Google Scholar this process has been made a bit more easier. (It makes young scientists wonder how searching was done in the pre-internet days!). Although searching nowadays seems to be a simple tasks, it still requires putting in the correct combination of search terms. Furthermore yo ...[Read More]

Monday paper: Paleosols in the Transantarctic Mountains: indicators of environmental change

Bockheim, J. G. 2013. Paleosols in the Transantarctic Mountains: indicators of environmental change. Solid Earth 4, 451-459. DOI: 10.5194/se-4-451-2013 Abstract The Transantarctic Mountains (TAMs), a 3500 km long chain that subdivides East Antarctica from West Antarctica, are important for reconstructing the tectonic, glacial, and climatic history of Antarctica. With an ice-free area of 24 200 km2 ...[Read More]

Earthquake lights (2)

The phenomena of earthquake lights, mysterious lights in the sky during seismic activity, is still not clearly understood (check out the previous post about Earthquake Lights). Now, new research reveals interesting discoveries that might give a better scientific explanation about the phenomena. A presented research at the Bulletin of the American Physical Society, APS March Meeting in Denver, Colo ...[Read More]
