    On Wednesday night the Etna on Sicily showed strombolian activity and glowing lava flows were visible from Catania. Don’t miss the great photos here and the webcam of the INGV and EtnaTrekking. This is the first larger eruption since May 2008 and surely one of the most beautiful ones. News coverage with more great videos here.

  • What’s up? The Friday links. (1)

    On 4 January, 2011 a partial solar eclipse was visible in Central Europe (up to 80% coverage of the sun).  Werner Kraus shot some nice photos through a number of filters, but the best picture surely has been made by Thierry Legault from Muscat, Oman – the partial eclipse with the ISS transiting! Incredible.

  • Teaching Paleoseismology – Excursion to Greece

    Paleoseismology and archeoseismology do only rarely appear in the curriculae of geoscience studies. Those topics will be covered in courses on tectonics and structural geology in most universities. Practical courses that allow applying the knowledge in the field can be a very good supplement, but in Germany, active faults are rare. RWTH Aachen University therefore organized a field trip to Greece, where active faults, fault scarps, archeological sites and beautiful outcrops are omnipresent.
