Accretionary Wedge #58: Signpost Outside of Nome, Alaska

I’m currently in Nome, Alaska for another season of fieldwork. So, if I’m a bit scarce around here over the next several weeks, that’s why. However, I hope to share a few pictures from Alaska now and then. Here’s one to start things off. While driving around the Nome area today, I ran across this fun signpost. I think that it is a perfect entry for Accretionary Wedge #58! Don’t …

Accretionary Wedge #58: Signs!

So, there’s  been no call  for an Accretionary Wedge geoblog carnival for July (although there is a call for August), but some folks on Twitter have suggested that I expand my signposts geomeme into a full Accretionary Wedge. Sounds like a good idea to me! So, for this month’s Accretionary Wedge, please share a picture of a geographical and/or geological sign that you find interesting. Please submit your entries by …

Accretionary Wedge #57: Seeing Geology Everywhere– The Compilation

Last month I hosted the Accretionary Wedge here at Georneys. The theme was “Seeing Geology Everywhere”, and I invited people to share stories about seeing the world through geology-tinted glasses, so to speak. Several geobloggers participated in the wedge: First up, Simon Wellings of the blog Metageologist wrote about how he pays attention to the accuracy (or, sometimes, the lack thereof) of the geology of children’s TV. Next, Lockwood DeWitt …

Accretionary Wedge #50: Camel Sunrise

I have the honor of hosting Accretionary Wedge #50 here at Georneys. The topic I chose for the September (Deadline: October 10th) Wedge is: Share a fun moment from geology field camp or a geology field trip. You can share a story, a picture, a song, a slogan, a page from your field notebook– anything you like! I have many fond memories from Dartmouth’s geology field camp (called “The Stretch”) in …

Accretionary Wedge #50: Field Camp / Trip Moments

Ron Schott recently reminded me that I am hosting September’s Accretionary Wedge geoblog carnival. Sorry for the late posting, but quite honestly I forgot that I was hosting this month! Fortunately, I’ve thought of a fun topic, and the deadlines for the wedge are somewhat fluid. I’ll make entries due on October 10th. Here’s the topic: Share a fun moment from geology field camp or a geology field trip. You …

Accretionary Wedge #42: Countertop Geology

Ian Saginor of the blog Volcanoclast is hosting this month’s accretionary wedge, and this month’s theme is countertop geology! Here’s the call for posts: Have you seen a great countertop out there? Sure, everyone says it’s “granite”, but you know better. Take a picture, post it on your own blog or send it to me and I’ll post it for you. Do you think you know what it is or …

Accretionary Wedge #39: Geologist Barbie

Sorry for taking awhile to post this October Accretionary Wedge. My thesis has been keeping me fairly busy recently! Back at the beginning of October, I issued this call for an Accretionary Wedge: Dress Barbie as a geologist for Halloween! To participate in this month’s accretionary wedge, purchase a Barbie (I think they sell for about $10) or, better yet, acquire one from a friend, thrift shop, or garage sale. …

Accretionary Wedge #39: Geochemist Barbie

Here’s my entry for Accretionary Wedge #39: Dress Barbie Like a Geologist for Halloween! Geochemist Barbie keeps busy in the clean lab! She wears a white, full-body tyvek jumpsuit to protect herself from chemicals. The suit also keeps dust and dirt out of the lab so that Geochemist Barbie can avoid contamination of her precious rock samples. Geochemistry is dangerous work! For instance, today Geochemist Barbie has to mix up …

Accretionary Wedge #39: Dress Barbie Like a Geologist for Halloween

Anne Jefferson just posted a wonderful round-up of back-to-school posts for Accretionary Wedge #38. I’m hosting Accretionary Wedge #39 here at Georneys.

Inspired by Paleontologist Barbie and in honor of Halloween, this month’s accretionary wedge is: Dress Barbie as a geologist for Halloween! To participate in this month’s accretionary wedge, purchase a Barbie (I think they …
