GSA 2013: Revisiting watershed drainage density: New considerations for hydrologic prediction

While I’ll be missing the festivities at the 125th anniversary edition of the the Geological Society of America, my able collaborator Sarah Lewis will be presenting our work in a session on “Quaternary Geology and Geomorphology: Past, Present, and Future.” Here’s what she’ll be showing off: Revisiting watershed drainage density: …

AGU 2013: Transient Storage versus Hyporheic Exchange in Low-gradient Headwater Streams

Abstract season is upon us. I’ll be at AGU, where there looks to be loads of good sessions, including one on “Groundwater-Surface Water Interactions: Physical, biological, and chemical relevance“. Hopefully, my work (abstracted below) will be part of this session. Transient Storage versus Hyporheic Exchange in Low-gradient Headwater Streams A.J. …

What this blog needs is more volcanoes

So much stuff going on here, I haven’t even had time to update since the end of the semester. But when I saw this video flit across my Twitter feed today (via @volcanojw), I slowed down to watch it and then had to share it. Someday I’ll get to Hawai’i …

Anthems for junior geology enthusiasts

The Kent State University Child Development Center kindergarten class is coming to visit the Geology Department this morning. They are going to get a chance to work on the Emriver stream table, figure out the the difference between fossils and rocks, and compare their stride length to a dinosaur’s. At …
