Ho, ho, ho! Merry Christmas, everybody. Have a joyful season and a happy, happy, happy new year! In case you’ve forgotten (over eating and drinking): Today is Friday and here are your links!
A short week full of Christmas events and defenses and farewells has passed here at my university, so this round-up is also to remind myself what I’ve missed… Today is Friday and here are your links!
Never, never, never ever, for no reason it is justifiable to damage a cultural heritage site. Not in Peru, not anywhere else in the world. Never. It should be always one of our primary objectives to sustain cultural and natural heritage sites. No discussion.
What happened in our world of geosciences last week? What news did you miss? What paper to read on the weekend? Here’s a roundup of last week. Today is Friday and here are your links!
Quite a lot happened this week. We have news on the world’s most abundant mineral, Nature going open access, a new blog on geomorphology, and more! So, Welcome back! Today is Friday and here are your links!
A long year ago, the last Friday links were published, a section I always liked and waited for during food coma or processing times. Christoph managed to find intriguing bits and pieces from the digital world of geosciences week after week. And now it’s me (and maybe with a little help from my friends), trying not only to follow-up but also to keep you updated and to keep the geoblogosphere interconnected. What a task!

What a week. I’ve seen loads and loads of interesting posters and met great people. Continue reading “EGU – it’s already Thursday!”
Europe’s biggest geoscience conference, the EGU General Assembly 2014, is approaching! Held in Vienna, Austria since about ten years by the European Geoscience Union, it brings together loads and loads of scientists from even more scientific fields. It’s great to present your work to your scientific community (because it’s likely they are there) but it might be even more suitable to meet new people, who give you helpful or even challenging input for your work!

Imagine you live or work in a seismically active region. Imagine you work on paleoseismology, active tectonics, earthquake engineering and encounter an earthquake. And now imagine you stand in the field examining recent earthquake effects. You soon might think about an easy way to document your data to have it digitized right away! Now you can use your Android smartphone to map, categorize, describe and report Earthquake Environmental Effects (EEE). A new application has been released: Earthquake Geo Survey.
