How to Find Detachment: General Geology

I'll be at the Northwest Mining Association meeting in Reno for a few day (NWMA), which isn't to say I absolutely won't blog, but... in case I don't, I'm posting a few ways to find this blog. The category this time? General Geology. (And, yes, I'm the one defining the categories.)

Some searches leading to Looking for Detachment, in the general geology category:

  • Caliente caldera
  • columnar andesite
  • Dixie Valley earthquake fault
  • geological style
  • geologists walking stick
  • geosyncline
  • geothermal gradient
  • mauna kea types of rocks produced
  • mt st helens shock wave photo
  • photo detachment folds
  • places to see before you die geology
  • scales of maps
  • survivor geologist
And some searching questions:

  • Do you think that uniformitarianism is consistent with rare catastrophic events, like a great earthquake?
  • How can you teach 4th graders about faults and folds with earthquakes
  • How to become a geomorphologist
  • Is broken top volcano close to a plate?
  • What are some interesting things about Broken Top volcano
  • What kind of a geologist should I be
  • Who is responsible for outlining the principal now called uniformitarianism

If you want to see which posts these searches led to, I'll let you Google it yourself! (What a concept.)

P.S. I'm at a hotel that has outrageous wi-fi charges, so am connecting via Verizon. Comments will be published; my comment replies may be limited - unless I break down and buy some internet time!

the first question in your list (the uniformitarianism one) is a fascinating question for which I've had a post in draft stage for about a year ... I forgot about that ... maybe I'll finish it.

I also like 'survivor geologist' ... any idea why?

Have fun at the meeting.

Brian, hope you get to that uniformitarianism post, that sounds like a good one. The survivor geologist has to do with a rumor/email that was going around (or goes around periodically) that implies there is a new survivor geologist show, and I posted about it last year - the whole thing is from the "Uncyclopedia."

Gaelyn: thanks!
