Call For Posts – Accretionary Wedge #49: Out of This World

The time for our next Accretionary Wedge is nigh. I suppose it’s about time for your host to let you know what the topic is, then, innit? With Curiosity landing at the base of a three mile high mountain on Mars, I think we all know there’s only one sensible choice: we must head for …

Accretionary Wedge #40: Hey, Pumpkin, You Rock!

Okay, yes, lame-ass post title. It’s all a cunning plan to get you to click away from here and go savor the spicy pumpkin goodness of the 40th Accretionary Wedge, in which geo-lanterns are on delightful display. See? We still do geology round here occasionally! More to come, I promise!

The Photo Not Taken

    This month’s Accretionary Wedge is a tough one.  When I go out to a geological locality these days, I tend to come away with about everything I could possibly ever need or want – until later, when during some research I find out there was more to the place than I suspected, and …

Accretionary Wedge #34: Last Call for Posts

Googling “weird geology” returns a photo of Callan Bentley.   That’s just weird. Don’t forget to get your weird geology to me by Friday, the 27th.  Getting left out would just be boring. Boring Volcanic Field.  Which isn’t actually boring at all.

Accretionary Wedge #34: Call for Posts

And this time, it’s gonna get weird. Not just because I’m hosting, although that’s weird enough.  But we’re talking about Weird Geology. Let’s face facts, people.  Geology can be strange.  Outrageous.  Bizarre.  I’m sure you’ve all run into formations and landscapes and concepts that have left you scratching your head.  Maybe they got less weird …

Accretionary Wedge #31 is up at The Geology P.A.G.E., and it’s a delight: As you can see by the title (Wait, What?) the topic for this month’s Accretionary Wedge (#31) is surprising geological knowledge. And we had a ton of fantastic contributions to the topic. Beautifully compiled, too!  It’s Sunday.  Sit back and relax with …

Accretionary Wedge #30: OM NOM NOM!

My darlings, it’s here.  The sideboard groans under deposits of geologic delights.  And I’d have a lot more to say about it, except I have this sudden and inexplicable urge to eat until I explode. If all the participants wish to form a commune, I’ll be happy to find us a place with an enormous …
