Featured Catchment: The Weierbach – Yet another temperate forested headwater?

Featured Catchment: The Weierbach – Yet another temperate forested headwater?

Slate bedrock, an often overlooked system At first sight, the Weierbach catchment may seem unspectacular. It is indeed a small (42 ha) forested headwater catchment, located at mid-latitude in a low mountain range (450-500 m a.s.l.). However, when you take a closer look, and particularly below the surface, the Weierbach is a truly exciting eco-hydrological system. Located in the Luxembourgish Arden ...[Read More]

OceanTalk with Frédéric Le Moigne

Frédéric Le Moigne has been awarded the 2020 Outstanding Early Career Scientist Award for the Division of Ocean Sciences and he agreed to be interviewed for our first blog post on the new Ocean Sciences blog. Frédéric can you tell us about your background and education? I was born and raised on the Atlantic coast, near the bay of Brest in Brittany, western France. In Brittany the ocean is an impor ...[Read More]

The Sassy Scientist – Of Codes And Cares

On the matter of code choices, Alexa could have asked Siri, but instead chose an old-fashioned medium of enquiry compatible across all operating systems and wrote in to ask: Should I perform my research with an in-house code, an open source code or a commercial code? Dear Alexa, As a famous novel does not quite begin, it is a truth universally acknowledged that a geodynamicist in possession of a g ...[Read More]

What is FAIR for Geodynamics?

What is FAIR for Geodynamics?

A very important part of science, which is getting more and more attention, is how to share and manage our data. This week, Adina E. Pusok, Postdoctoral Researcher at the Department of Earth Sciences, University of Oxford, shares thoughts and tips on how to make our science fairer. So, what is FAIR for Geodynamics? This is a big question! I would say that what is fair for geodynamics is fair for a ...[Read More]

In between Natural Hazards and Heritage, interview to Maria Bostenaru

In today’s interview, we talk with Dr Maria Bostenaru. Maria is an architecture engineer with a research interest in the complex relationship between urban areas, natural hazards, and heritage. She tells us how she thinks that involving more humanities, which include, for example, the study of languages, literature, archaeology, together with information technology solutions may result in ne ...[Read More]
