Last month was full of interesting and exciting geology news (as always)! Here’s a look back at some of the more popular posts for the month of February.
1.) The Economic Stimulus Bill and NSF Funding – A look at whether or not NSF funding should have been included in the stimulus bill.
2.) Where on Google Earth #157 – I won my first Where on Google Earth competition. Thanks to that, I hosted the first ever WoGE challenge on the Geology News blog.
3.) Conan Oâ€™Brien on the Phases of Boron – Conan wonders why it was so hard for the New York Times to get the phases of boron right in an article correction they posted.
4.) Limestone Quarry Explosion Photos – Awesome! – Fantastic photographs taken from limestone quarries in Japan, capturing the process of mining and breaking rock with explosive in detail.
5.) Something called volcano monitoring – My response to Bobby Jindal’s ridiculous response to President Barack Obama’s speech to a joint session of Congress.
Some other notable posts last month included karst caves, finding treasure with Google earth, visualizing Manhattan Island before human settlement, and our 4 year blogoversary!
