Rise and Fall of San Diego – Part 2 of 2

[ Music ] >> Hey. I'm up here, on top of the San Diego National Bank building. From here we can see San Diego Bay with its marine traffic and it really is a superb bay for its commerce, its recreation and, of course, its beauty. But 120,000 years ago, had this building been here, it would have looked like this. [ Sound of Rushing Water ] So why would this building be under water? For more than 2 1/2 million years, the earth has been locked in an ice age. In fact, sheets of ice up to 2 miles […]

Iceland Geology #6 – Volcano Warning Near the Blue Lagoon and KEF Airport

Huge inflation has been detected under MT. Þorbjörn on Reykjanes peninsula since January 21 2020 The mountain is beside the world famous Blue Lagoon, big powerplant and Grindavík fishing village The inflation is most likely a sign of magma accumulation at a depth of just a few km The inflation is unusually rapid, around 3-4 mm per day and has accumulated to 2 cm to date. Here we can see earthquakes in Iceland up to 6 mo back in time on map.is Covered with earthquake swarms from the sub-sea Reykjanes ridge and throughout the whole peninsula We had 1700 earthquakes […]

Geography Now! MALDIVES

Hey everybody, GeographyNow.com is finally launched And since you guys asked for it, We made you guys 'Geography Now!' notepads and buttons. Stop by the website if you'd like to get one. Thanks for the support guys! For years, you guys have been joking over and over by saying: "Oh by the time Geography Now gets to the Maldives episode, the country is gonna be underwater." Well, Ha ha ha ha!! Guess who's still staying afloat! Islands don't float. – Oh yeah, hey Hannah, how you doing? I'm Marvelous! – Hannah you know, what? – What? How would you like […]

Plate Tectonics– Geological features of Convergent Plate Boundaries

We already talked a lot about plate boundaries, where new bark material is actually created and the plates are actually spaced apart – we call it "divergent boundaries," and we gave an example of this – the mid-Atlantic ridge, where essentially new bark material is created. On the other side of the equation we have areas where the plates collide with each other. We see this here, where the Nazca plate moves against the South American tectonic plate. We also see it here, where the Pacific plate moves against the Philippine plate – they move against each other. Well, what's […]

73) Field Geology Preparations

(Opening Music) This is my field notebook. There are many like it, but this one is mine but this one is mine. My field note book is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my field note book is useless. Without my field note book, I am useless. And I must record my observations true, or what's the point. Geologic field work starts long before you ever get into the field area itself. You will probably spend at least a week in preparation for every day you spend […]

Michael Cremo: “Forbidden Archaeology” | Talks at Google

MALE SPEAKER: Thanks to all of you for coming to this talk by Michael Cremo on forbidden archaeology here at Google. So when was the last time somebody questioned evolution? Do you know? In your experience, any numbers? I'm just trying to say how often it happens, somebody questioning such a major theory as evolution. Any guess? I mean, before the talk. Sorry? AUDIENCE: It happens all the time in the US. MALE SPEAKER: OK. That's good. That's good that people are aware of that debate. Some people don't even know that it's a theory and know it's being debated, […]

2017 February Evening Public Lecture — Geology Up-Close

[ Silence ] [inaudible background conversations] Hello. And good evening. Welcome to the U.S. Geological Survey. My name is Leslie Gordon, and it’s – I’ve missed the last couple of public lectures, so it’s good to be back here and see a lot of friendly and familiar faces. It’s always my pleasure – before I introduce tonight’s speakers, I want to make sure that you come back next month. It’s going to be a really exciting talk. I hope I am here as well. It’s going to be about brown bears, sea otters, and seals in Katmai National Park in […]

Science in Action: Undergraduate Research in Geology

We're in Grayson County in southwest Virginia close to Mount Rogers, which is the highest point in Virginia and our research is looking at ancient volcanic rocks that formed about 750 million years ago. Today we're looking at rocks called conglomerates, which are sedimentary rocks that have clasts of older rocks in them, and we are collecting clasts of the volcanic rhyolite that are in the conglomerate in order to analyze them through geochemistry and to determine the age of the clasts. Around 760 million years ago there was an attempted rift. There was a supercontinent kind of like Pangaea […]

Geology at the University of Exeter’s Penryn Campus, Cornwall

In Dorset here we're actually in one of the largest oil fields onshore in Europe. These rocks here, which are about 200 million years or so old, record the major environmental changes that have taken place in the past. We could predict using computer models now what's going to happen in the future. It's important to get out in the field because then you get a real feel for it, it's very different, it's not idealized and you have to work it out for yourself and doing that makes you about a geologist, I think. Geology is a very diverse […]
