Miss the USGS lecture?


Did you miss the recent U.S. Geological Service talk in Menlo Park on the USGS ARkSTORM project? That project considers the possibility of a hurricane-like storm striking the West Coast and staying for weeks, as happen in the winter of 1861.

Thanks to "Steve" on Town Square for a reminder that if you miss a public lecture at USGS, you can almost always view an archived videostream of the talk.

See the links below.

To draw attention to a couple of my favorite talks:
The Winemaker's Dance
Connecting Geology and Wine in Napa Valley
Geologist David Howell answers the questions "Does a glass of wine really contain 100 million years of geologic history ?" and "If "2-buck chuck" is drinkable, why bother with a $100 bottle of wine? "

Hot Oil, Frozen Ground, and Earthquakes
The Trans-Alaska Pipeline story-- so far, so good!
Three emeritus scientists discuss how a chance conversation at a urinal in 1968 led to a major redesign of the Trans-Alaska Oil Pipeline and the complex battle of scientific, economic, safety, environmental, and political concerns that resulted.
