Hey so quick dog update! This is Tuff’s brother, Mr. Snowball (Snowy)! He’s been with us for nearly a year now! He was adopted from the same shelter as Tuff. He was very abused and malnourished at a hoarders house. He was found dying in a box in an attic. He is 3 years old now and Tuff is slowly but surely teaching him how to play and make friends! He is technically my sisters dog and he looks at her like she is the best thing he’s ever seen. This has been your bi annual Lellypad dog update
jimthegeologist When 10% hydrochloric acid meets Gambier Limestone pyroclasts in a volcaniclastic tuff deposit, Mount Gambier, southeastern South Australia. Fizz away! Even the silt-sized fraction reacts, thus confirming the Gambier Limestone was the groundwater reservoir that fragmented as the lava in the Newer Volcanic Province rose through the crust 4,500 years ago, forming the Mount Gambier maar volcano. Limestone and basalt comprised the pebble-sized fraction. Fourth day of fieldwork with the John Monash Science School crew @officialjmss
The Owens River in California sits in Owens Valley, a fault-bounded valley at the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. In parts, it spreads out across the valley floor, but in other areas it is confined to a deep gorge that it has eroded through volcanic rocks erupted by the Long Valley Caldera. The terrain is spectacular - the Sierra Nevada Mountains on one side, the White Mountains on the other, and a volcanic caldera in the center. This river also is an industrial story - much of the water from this river is now shipped south to the city of Los Angeles by major aqueducts. This video takes you on a short fly fishing trip to the parts of that river that still flow.
