Penrose Conference Announcement
The Geological Society of America via AEG
Rare geologic terranes exist in intraplate areas of the North American continent that illuminate nascent crustal-scale tectonic processes, fault nucleation/evolution, interaction of geologic structures in changing stress fields, tectonic effects on topography and fluvial systems and issues in seismic hazard/risk assessment. These terranes, if recognized, are ideally suited to multidisciplinary research, leading to greater understanding of crustal evolution from the crust-mantle interface to surface geomorphology.

Firsthand observations of the impacts of the 2013 Colorado floods
EARTH Magazine
Around almost every bend in the road on a tour of the Colorado Front Range and points downstream in the weeks after the September floods, the physical devastation confronted researchers like a punch in the gut. Even though they had all seen graphic images on the news, observing the destruction firsthand — especially from a geologic perspective — was truly stunning and humbling.

Study: Warring trolls explanation for mysterious basalt pillars revised
EARTH Magazine
Peculiar basalt pillars found in Iceland — attributed in local lore to a pair of angry trolls hurling projectiles at each other — are having their origin story updated. In a rare example of nonexplosive lava-water interactions occurring on land, the hollow pillars likely formed around vertical columns of steam and superheated water venting through lava as it flowed over saturated ground, according to a new study.
