What’s up? The Friday links (5).

The Accredtionary Wedge #30 blog carnival hosted by Mountain Beltway came up with a tasting idea in January: The Geological Bake Sale. Explore and enjoy thematic food like the moon surface cake, the pillow lava bread and the debris flow vegetables. If you create a sweet fault or a tasty trench, we promise to publish it on paleoseismicity.org.  There’s a geologists game going on in the internet called WOGE – Where on GoogleEarth? Aim is to identify an area by a screenshot of GE and to write a short summary of the geological features there. The quiz is hosted by the last winner. Pretty nice and always fascinating. Here you can find an overview.

Science News came up with a story telling that “the magnitude-8.8 earthquake that pummeled Chile in February 2010 did not relieve seismic stress the way scientists thought it might have” and that therefore the risk is not reduced. Read more here. This video provides amazing aerial pictures of the quake area:

Great geo-science videos can be found at Structural Geology’s YouTube channel. Its hosted by the working group for Structural Geology, Tectonics and Geomechanics of RWTH Aachen University. They made a lot of sandbox analogue modelling, DE modelling and grain growth stuff. You’ll also find lectures online. Check out!

Have a nice weekend!
