Is your child experimenting with…geology?

A post by Chris RowanIt’s been a busy couple of days for me – a flurry of activity surrounding a big paper resubmission has necessitated several hours playing with python to produce some pretty new plots – and by ‘playing’ I mean ‘getting frustrated as I test the limits of my meagre coding skills’. Sadly, last night’s palliative was not really appropriate for a morning work session, so I amused myself on the internet instead, with the help of a few other geotweeps.

Feel free to add your own suggestions in the comments. It starts with pebbles on the beach, see. But before you know it, you’re on the real hard rock stuff…

    Oh, this one struck so close to home. Only when I was an adult myself did I realize how tolerant my parents were. 4 kids in this tiny house in the middle of the desert, and one of them is crazy enough to bring home poisonous arthropods in jars, disarticulated skeletons, and lots and lots of rocks. They were very generous with the space they had in that house.

    When I was a kid, my siblings and I had made a museum in our basement. Now we are 2 geologists and one ecologist. Our neighbor also contributed hand drawn maps and cross sections. He is a cartographer.
