Where Are All the Earth Science Bloggers?
It’s time to play a game! Where are all the earth science bloggers? Are geologists genetically inclined to dislike the nontechnical nature of the blogosphere? Or are we being discriminated against by our colleagues in physics and biology?
The following are all the active earth science bloggers of which I am aware:
- Andrew Frederiksen – Seismology, earth science, and society
- Sabine's Garden
- Walter Kessinger – Industry Seismology and Stuff
- Brian Balta – Left Thinking in a Right Lateral Shear Zone

Also of note: Transect Points has a list of soil science bloggers here.
I haven’t included very many LiveJournallers, because there’s like a billion of them and I’m too lazy to sort through. But you can find people interested in geophysics, geology, geodynamics, and hydrogeology, among other things. I update the list every few months or so.
