So how well are the earth sciences represented in the nominations for the 2007 Open Laboratory? Well. There’s some great geodesy, climate science, oceanography, and paleontology, and Chris Clarke wrote a lovely meditation on Miocene volcanism in the Sierras. And of course a there’s truly excellent post about neuroscience which totally counts because it was written by a geoblogger (*casually buffs fingernails*). But the straight-up geology and geophysics is oddly absent.
The deadline for nominating posts is December 20, but you can submit anything written after Dec. 20 2006. Why not take a moment to dig back in your archives for some good “hard rock” writing? I’d do it for you, but, uh, I have dinner plans. Here’s the submission form.
Also! Remember, remember, the next edition of The Accretionary Wedge will be held this Thursday at The Other 95%-ember. The theme is “geology and life”, and I see no reason why Accretionary Wedge treason should ever be forgot.
