Dr. Harlow and his team of geologists hiked along riverbeds and steep outcrops, collecting rock samples that might provide clues to the evolution of the Caribbean region. The Caribbean originated 120 million years ago, when areas of volcanic islands and ocean floor squeezed past Mexico and South America. In what's known as the Guatemala suture zone, the boundary between the North American and Caribbean tectonic plates, geologists have found remnants of both a plate collision and a subduction zone, where an oceanic plate plunged into Earth's mantle.

  • Rice geologists study half-billion-year-old 'time capsules' on Texas ranch

    When you look at the cliffs overlooking the Llano River in Central Texas, it’s hard to imagine that they were underwater a half-billion years ago and formed part of the North American coastline during the Upper Cambrian era. But that’s what brought Rice marine geologist André Droxler and his team of researchers to a rare land-based expedition. “I never thought on land you could discover something,” he said. “To discover something in the middle of Texas, it’s pretty exciting.” According to Droxler, the Eagle Ridge Ranch located in Mason County near Fredericksburg has some of the best outcrops in the world containing fossilized prehistoric bacteria and microbes. He believes these microbial reefs contained the first forms of life on Earth. Droxler’s team was granted access to the land...

From amazing tropical locations, to the deep crack found in Arizona, these are 18 Photos of the STRANGEST Geological Formations ! Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 9. Chimney Rock You might remember this place if you ever played the game called oregon trail. Located at the Chimney Rock National Historic Site, this famous landmark is located in the rather flat state of Nebraska. When Americans began heading west, they used this geological formation as a rendezvous point for fur trading. It’s was often spotted by pioneers along the Oregon trail and if they had made it this far, they knew they was a good chance they’d make it all the way to the prospering gold or silver mines of the west. The pillar is made of Brule clay and layered with ancient volcanic ash and sandstone. The chimney tower at the top, consists of stronger sandstone which has allowed it to stand upright. 8. Wave Rock Woah, surf's up in Australia and it looks like this huge wave is about to make this lady here wipe out! The 47 footer is found in hyden, Australia about 300 kilometres east of Perth. This wave is 350 feet long and made of Monzogranite. The photographer certainly took this photo from an amazing angle and it looks like it’s seriously about to crash any moment! 7. Bryce Canyon Rock Formations This photo that we see taken in Bryce Canyon located in Utah, is geologists call Hoodoo. They’re large pinnacle formations made of sedimentary rock that can reach up to 200 feet. Although Bryce Canyon, technically isn’t a canyon, tourists love coming to this national park for hiking, recreation and experiencing this strange rock formations in person. This photo captures carefully the different shades of coloring that the hoodoos give off. 6. Hanging Rock, Australia If you’re afraid of heights, you certainly don’t want to stand on the edge of this crazy rtock formation located in new south wales. The cliff reaches about 330 feet high. This giant block of sandstone has become a popular location for daring rock climbers but you have to imagine the view from the top is pretty insane! 5. Drangarnir, Faroe Islands Located in the isolated faroe islands, these sea stacks form in the Atlantic ocean and form an arch with striking beauty as you can tell from this photo. Arches like these found along the coastline, can be formed over a long period of time due to intense wave crashes hitting, weaker areas of stones. The waters can also erode the weaker parts of the rock, but this example in the Faroe islands is quite unique and stunning. 4. Located in the outback of Australia, it seems like this stone was some kind of watermelon chopped in half by some kind of giant with a samurai sword! The man here in the photo, must truly understand the bizarre, uniqueness to a rock formation such as this. It’s believed that the huge changes in temperature during night and day at this location caused the rock to expand and contract, eventually leading to it being broken in half. Some rocks and minerals when they’re separated have a much more smooth cleavage, such as this. 3. Strange Crack, Mexico Incredible photos were taken of a strange crack that runs east and west in the mexico desert. It stretches over kilometer long and is about 8 meters deep! The crevice has forced drivers and farm workers to work around it or risk falling down! Many were really unsure exactly what caused the surface of the earth to simply crack open like that but they believe it was mostly likely caused by an earthquake from the San Andreas fault. But what’s strange about that theory is that the San Andreas fault runs North and South. So it’s an unusual case nonetheless. 2. Valle De Luna, Bolivia Also known as the valley of the moon in English, this crazy place is found in bolivia. This is area that’s been wore away by erosion but from this photo you can tell that older things are beautiful as well. The unique clay erosion patterns are like something from out of this world and possibly on the moon! Be careful when hiking here since the rocks can get pretty jagged! James Bond Island :D This crazy looking rock almost seems as though it’s completely photoshopped but it’s not! A huge limestone pillar juts out from the sea and creates a huge tourist attraction! It’s located in Thailand and many are drawn by it’s beauty and mystery. The limestone tower reaches 66 feet high

No country in the world produces all of the mineral resources necessary for modern society. International trade plays a critical role in providing these raw materials, forming a global network of production, export, import, and use. This network must continuously adapt to national and international developments in science, technology, politics, and economics. As a result, information on the global flow of raw materials plays a fundamental role in improving national and international resilience to potential supply disruptions and market changes. This is the first presentation from the AGI Critical Issues webinar, "Tracking the Global Supply of Critical Materials". This webinar focuses on U.S. and European Union (EU) efforts to gather information and develop tools that can be used to ensure a secure national and global supply of mineral resources; identify and quantify vulnerabilities in this supply; and stimulate national and international co-operation, education and outreach, and innovation in the development, recycling, and substitution of key mineral resources. Our speakers include: Nedal Nassar, Chief, Materials Flow Analysis Section, National Minerals Information Center, U.S. Geological Survey Vitor Correia, President, European Federation of Geologists, and co-ordinator of the EU’s INTRAW project This webinar is co-sponsored by the American Geophysical Union, American Institute of Professional Geologists, Australian Institute of Geoscientists, European Federation of Geologists, Geological Society of Africa, Geological Society of London, Geoscience Information Society, Mineralogical Society of America, and Society of Economic Geologists, with media partnership from the U.S. Geological Survey.

It is arguably a special case in planetary science, the Earth being the only known life-bearing planet. There are both reductionist and holistic approaches to Earth science. There are four major disciplines in earth sciences, namely geography, geology, geophysics and geodesy. These major disciplines use physics, chemistry, biology, chronology and mathematics to build a quantitative understanding of the principal areas or spheres of the Earth system. The following fields of science are generally categorized within the geosciences: - Geology describes the rocky parts of the Earth's crust (or lithosphere) and its historic development. Major subdisciplines are mineralogy and petrology, geochemistry, geomorphology, paleontology, stratigraphy, structural geology, engineering geology and sedimentology. - Geophysics and Geodesy investigate the figure of the Earth, its reaction to forces and its magnetic and gravity fields. Geophysicists explore the Earth's core and mantle as well as the tectonic and seismic activity of the lithosphere. - Soil science covers the outermost layer of the Earth's crust that is subject to soil formation processes (or pedosphere). Major subdisciplines include edaphology and pedology. - Oceanography and hydrology (includes limnology) describe the marine and freshwater domains of the watery parts of the Earth (or hydrosphere). Major subdisciplines include hydrogeology and physical, chemical, and biological oceanography. - Glaciology covers the icy parts of the Earth (or cryosphere). - Atmospheric sciences cover the gaseous parts of the Earth (or atmosphere) between the surface and the exosphere (about 1000 km). Major subdisciplines are meteorology, climatology, atmospheric chemistry and atmospheric physics. - A very important linking sphere is the biosphere, the study of which is biology. The biosphere consists of all forms of life, from single-celled organisms to pine trees to people. The interactions of Earth's other spheres - lithosphere/geosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere and/or cryosphere and pedosphere - create the conditions that can support life. • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earth_science .

His talk will describe the fascinating geology of Iceland as well as highlighting its beautiful scenery. The key geological feature of Iceland is the Mid-Atlantic ridge which appears above sea level in Iceland and marks the boundary between the North American and the Eurasian plates. These plates are moving apart by 2.5cm/year and create the longest mountain range in the world – from the Arctic to the Antarctic, and almost all of which is over 2500 meters below sea level . The fact that there is a hotspot under this ridge in Iceland makes it unique. This creates the Iceland volcanic plume where over the last 65 million years 10 million km³ of magma has erupted. The island of Iceland itself is less than 25 million years old. In the talk we will explore the location on the southwest coast where the mid Atlantic ridge emerges from the sea and two other locations where the ridge creates a spectacular trough cutting across the island. Other areas of geological interest include the largest glaciers in Europe, as well as the many active volcanoes of Iceland. These include the Laki eruptions in the 1780’s which resulted in wide spread famine and disaster in the northern hemisphere and are thought to have led to the French revolution, and the Eyjafjallajokull eruption which caused the disruption in air travel in Europe in 2010. The talk also features wonderful scenery from all around the island, with its many waterfalls, glaciers, and mountains as well as the aurora borealis (northern lights).

In November 2010, Museum Curator George E. Harlow embarked on a Constantine S. Niarchos Expedition to the Montagua Valley in central Guatemala, a fault zone rich in the precious mineral, jadeite jade. Dr. Harlow and his team of geologists hiked along riverbeds and steep outcrops, collecting rock samples that might provide clues to the evolution of the Caribbean region. The Caribbean originated 120 million years ago, when areas of volcanic islands and ocean floor squeezed past Mexico and South America. In what's known as the Guatemala suture zone, the boundary between the North American and Caribbean tectonic plates, geologists have found remnants of both a plate collision and a subduction zone, where an oceanic plate plunged into Earth's mantle. The high pressures of subduction zones help form minerals like jadeite and its host rock, serpentinite. By following the trail of jade in this region, Dr. Harlow and his team are gaining an understanding of the subduction and collisions that occurred throughout the history of Caribbean plate tectonics. During the expedition, the team studied an ophiolite--a piece of sea floor crust emplaced on top of the continent that had not previously been recorded on geological maps. Back at the Museum, Dr. Harlow's team, including Dr. Kennet Flores, a Davis Postdoctoral Scholar in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, is conducting geochemical studies of the rock samples gathered during the expedition. Dr. Harlow anticipates that the results will provide insight into the geological puzzle of Guatemala and open windows for research in other parts of the world. George Harlow's Constantine S. Niarchos Expedition was generously supported by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. The research described in this video has been supported in part by the National Science Foundation (NSF) under grant numbers EAR0309116 and EAR1119403.

When you look at the cliffs overlooking the Llano River in Central Texas, it’s hard to imagine that they were underwater a half-billion years ago and formed part of the North American coastline during the Upper Cambrian era. But that’s what brought Rice marine geologist André Droxler and his team of researchers to a rare land-based expedition. “I never thought on land you could discover something,” he said. “To discover something in the middle of Texas, it’s pretty exciting.” According to Droxler, the Eagle Ridge Ranch located in Mason County near Fredericksburg has some of the best outcrops in the world containing fossilized prehistoric bacteria and microbes. He believes these microbial reefs contained the first forms of life on Earth. Droxler’s team was granted access to the land after working with Woodlands resident Donald Shepard and his wife, Rose, who own the ranch. The professor of Earth science also secured funding from four major oil companies that had interest in the research on microbial reefs. Since 2012 the Rice professor and graduate students have made many trips to Mason County, drilled more than 150 core samples and virtually mapped the area using a drone. Droxler said the three summers here “have been some of the happiest summers I have had in my life,” and he returns with the same excitement as the first time he paddled down the Llano River in search of half-billion-year-old “time capsules.”

003 - Geology In this video Paul Andersen explains how rock is formed and changed on the planet. The video begins with a brief description of rocks, minerals, and the rock cycle. Plate tectonics is used to describe structure near plate boundaries. Hot spots and natural hazards (like volcanos, earthquake, and tsunamis) are included. Do you speak another language?

Less than one-third of the U.S. is mapped at the level of detail necessary to make informed planning decisions on a local scale concerning natural resources, natural hazards, infrastructure planning, and environmental stewardship. In the Great Lakes region, the Great Lakes Geologic Mapping Coalition (GLGMC), a group including U.S. and Canadian state and provincial geological surveys, is producing detailed 3D geologic maps that are helping to provide decision-relevant information to Great Lakes state communities. Due to similar regional geology, these state surveys can work together, sharing their expertise and resources so that each can better address geologic issues in their area. Working with the communities, the GLGMC provides and makes maps that solve problems such as groundwater contamination and resource development. This is the second presentation in the AGI Critical Issues webinar, "Geologic Mapping to Empower Communities: Examples from the Great Lakes". This free webinar brings together experts from three state geological surveys to introduce geologic mapping in the Great Lakes region, showcase projects from the Great Lakes Geologic Mapping Coalition, and review planning decisions made based on their work. Our speakers are: Richard C. Berg, Director, Illinois State Geological Survey Harvey Thorleifson, Director, Minnesota Geological Survey Jason Thomason, Associate Hydrogeologist and Section Head; Hydrogeology and Geophysics, Illinois State Geological Survey John Yellich, Director, Michigan Geological Survey at Western Michigan University This webinar is co-sponsored by the American Association of State Geologists, Association of Engineering and Environmental Geologists, American Institute of Professional Geologists, Environmental and Engineering Geophysical Society, Geological Society of America, National Association of State Boards of Geology, Society for Sedimentary Geology, and the Society of Exploration GeophysicistsInternational Exposition and 88th Annual Meeting in Anaheim.
