WOWZERS?! This has been a hell of a past few weeks getting my poster together for the annual AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco.

I’ve finally got my poster done. Check it out on AGU ePosters.

I’ll be presenting my work from Summer mapping in Namibia. Come find me Monday afternoon in T13E: Earthquake deformation: Integrating Observations and Mechanisms II in Moscone South.

My research group is planning on heading out to the Corona fault in the Castro district look look at an awesome anastimosing fault surface with slicken lines so smooth you can see your reflection. I think there will also be a blogger meet up at some point?

Other goals for my return to California:

  • Catch up with friends
  • Become supersatruated with the best IPAs (and beer in general) in the World
  • Eat so many lengua tacos and so many carnitas burritos.

Happy Turkey Day!

This Thanksgiving, the Americans stranded at McGill are coming together for a feast. I got charged with turkey duty. Pray for me.

In honor of Thanksgiving, here are some of my favorite songs about thanksgiving/native americans..
I know there’s one more that I’m forgetting. This list is a good start though.

The Lord Weird Slough Feg – Warriors Dawn

Iron Maiden – Run to the Hills

Anthrax – Indians

Testament – Native Blood

This video was posted on the California Academy of Sciences website. Here Harold Tobin explains the goals of the NanTroSEIZE drilling project and how it ties into the larger picture of earthquake hazard assessment. This ship was also used during the JFAST project to drill the Tohuku earthquake fault. I’ve posted about the JFAST project before and here or learn more from their official page.
