Tweets for the Week

It's becoming popular to blog links tweeted on Twitter; here are mine for the past week. This practise was started by Chris at Highly Allochthonous a few weeks ago, and recently taken up by Ole at Olelog. I'm typically a bit eclectic on Twitter - links will include geoblogs, other geological and geographical articles, and articles on other subjects. I have, of course, left out any links I tweeted to my own blog, so as not to be too redundant and overweening. I'm not sure if I'll commit to doing this weekly, though it's fairly easy using Twitter Search, as Chris pointed out in his most recent twitter-link post. I've listed these in chronological order, with the least recent first and the most recent last.
