Geologists sometimes get to play with dirt even in the laboratory. Here’s an experiment - a river delta is simulated, with sediment piling up and forming a wedge, at the same time as a normal fault is moving. This type of setup is commonly found on continental margins, where there are many normal faults left over from continental rifting and sediments from the continents pile up on top of them.

This simulation shows the type of structure commonly present in areas like the Mississippi River Delta. Understanding these processes is hugely important economically because these faults and folds are places where oil and gas reserves can move upwards and become trapped.


First off, if you’re a teenage fanjago, listen up. Shi7’s about to get real.

Showing off your Ninjago pride is tricky if you’re older than ten and don’t know a particularly well-stocked Walmart. Sure, there’s keychains out there, but those just aren’t enough. Unless you’re an awesome T-shirt artist, you’ll probably have trouble finding the perfect shirt. 

Here’s a list of my ideas for the perfect teen Ninjago shirt. If you like them, please reblog/like. If I get one hundred notes on this, I’ll email these ideas to LEGO. Here goes:

~A simple maroon one with purple text reading “ONLY ONE CAN REMAIN” on the front, with the Anacondrai tattoo on the back

~One that looks like Garmadon’s shirt on the front and back, including the peeled back corner with the tattoo peeking out

~Same as above, but with Clouse/Chen/etc’s shirt print

~Replicas of every ninja gi EVER

~Lloyd’s shirt from RoTS. Yas.

~Serpentine torso prints.

~Shirts with awesome Ninjago quotes on them

~One with the lyrics to “The Weekend Whip” shaped like a ninja silhouette in various colors

BONUS IDEAS: Exact replicas of Lloyd’s cape (RoTS) and Pythor’s belt (ToE).
