•Having trouble sleeping? Hoping to become even more confused about diagenesis? Looking for amazing examples of voiceovers and cutaways? See Marty Pepper's new blockbuster youtube video, Moki Marbles Matinee.
•Dr. Willy Guenthner () has a new website at his new institution, the University of Illinois.
• Check out our cover photo and new paper on diagenetic cement, concretions, and fracture-filling oxide minerals in Mesozoic sandstones of the Colorado Plateau, in GSAB, August 2014.
•New photos (Aug 2014) from HeDWAZ 2014 - Multichron, June-July 2014
•My former student Devon Orme's new website.
•GEOS 474/574: Geochronology & Thermochronology, Spring Semester 2014
•Field trip to the Colorado Plateau to investigate the mysteries of diagenetic oxides, October 2013
•Field trip to the Uinkaret Volcanic Field, October 2013
•September 2013: I'm back at UA and in the thick of things again. Just to show you what I've been up to lately, here is a shot of some of my favorite secondary minerals from my favorite place in the world.
•August 2012 to August 2013: I'm on sabbatical, at the Centre de Recherches Petrographiques et Geochimique (CRPG).
•Check out Stuart Thomson's recent paper on the landscape evolution of subglacial East Antarctica. This got a nice News & Views, and some good publicity, for example here, here, and here. This is also closely related to UA alum Clare Tochilin's cool paper on Antarctic erosion, here.
•Check out the recent paper led by Jay Quade on the mysterious rubbing boulders of the Atacama, in here:
. And while you're at it take a gander at some of the cool SEM pics in the oft-overlooked DR. What up with the Si-coating?
•The 40th Annual GeoDaze!, March 2012
•CIFAR field trip to Kohala volcano, February 2012
Less New, But Still Newish Stuff:
•Field trip to the Tucson Mountains, November 2011
•Photos and stuff from Antarctichron 2011
•Check out our recent paper on Clinker geochronology, the first glacial maximum, and landscape evolution in the northern Rockies, in here:
