Geology Rap Geology is crunk! Learn about the rock cycle and plate tectonics with the latest rap by Mrs. Harvey. But be careful....geology can be HOT!!! LYRICS: Geology Its the study of rocks Mrs. Harveylicious gonna rock yo socks With the knowledge of the earth and its forms I know yo brains are thirsty, so get ready for the storm Its called the rock cycle and it goes round and round Consider it a geologic merry-go-round So hop on, cause this ride aint whack And Ill take you to the middle of the earth and back It starts with a rock getting weathered and eroded They get eaten away like iron thats corroded Wind, water, ice, and sulfuric acid rain These can all reduce a rock to itty bitty grains Called sediments, like dust in the wind When their transportation stops, deposition can begin Then pressure starts to build from the bottom to the top Cementation and compaction form a sedimentary rock Layers upon layers We be findin bones and shells in dem layers But when those layers get pushed down in the mantle The heat and pressure that results is far too great to handle Oh snap, wheres my sedimentary rock? My sedimentary rock is now a metamorphic rock Over years and years the rock is slowly changed The molecular structure of the rocks is rearranged As the metamorphic rock moves closer to the core It flows into the magma and melts more and more Cooling, crystallizing to an igneous rock If you touch it while its cooling, you best drop it like its hawwwt!

Geologist NW US predictions: "Seismic Window" in Pacific Ring of Fire & Earthquake Fish (in SoCal) Geologist Jim Berkland gives us background information on familiar anomalies (spatial and earth) that clue us to upcoming earthquakes. Berkland was famous for predicting the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake in San Francisco (also known as the Quake of '89 and the World Series Earthquake). Jim Berkland: "Seismic Window" (Highest Tidal Force): 19 - 26 Mar 2011, then next closest approach of the moon will be in 2016.

Why I Became a Geologist- Randy Marrett Dr. Randy Marrett is an Associate Professor in the Department of Geological Sciences at the University of Texas. Dr. Marrett's research concentrates on deformation processes in the upper continental crust where folds, faults, and opening-mode fractures are the most important products. This work is applicable to a wide range of human concerns such as natural hazards (eg, earthquakes, volcanoes) and the flow of fluids through rock (eg, hydrocarbons, water, contaminants). Some common themes that relate his disparate interests are quantitative field observations and ***ysis, especially using techniques that address spatial and size scaling of structures. Dr. Marrett currently has on-going projects that address active faulting and geyser eruption patterns in the Central Andes of Argentina and Chile, detachment folding and curved orogenic belt development in the Sierra Madre Oriental of Mexico, and opening-mode fracturing in numerous areas.

GigaPanning Geology Ronald Schott of Fort Hays State University talks at the first Fine International Conference on Gigapixel Imaging for Science, November 11-13 2010 at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA. This workshop will focus on the application of GigaPanning to geologic research and education. We'll explore field site documentation, GigaPan-based visual correlation of outcrops/specimens, macro- GigaPans, petrographic microGigaPans and discuss future directions in geologic GigaPanning. Examples of classroom pedagogy and research use of GigaPans will be offered to spark the discussion. Objectives: Discover the wide variety of existing uses for GigaPans in geology; Establish a social graph of the geologic GigaPanning community; Explore additional avenues for applying GigaPan technology to the study of the Earth.

The Geological Diagrams of Buckminster Fuller K. Michael Hays (Arch 1976) presented drawings and models from the Buckminster Fuller archive that demonstrate his understanding of the geometrical foundation of natural and designed phenomena. Presented on October 29, 2008, in the Architecture Auditorium. Michael Hays has played a central role in the advancement of architectural theory and the role of the architect as cultural critic. As editor of Assemblage and author of numerous books, he has focused attention on the work of Hannes Meyer, Ludwig Hilberseimer and Mies van der Rohe; as well as Peter Eisenman, Machado & Silvetti and the late John Hejduk. He is the Eliot Noyes Professor of Architectural Theory at Harvard University and the first curator of architecture at the Whitney Museum of American Art where he directed the recent exhibition on Buckminster Fuller.

Geology in Quran PLEASE READ IT ALL!!! In Geology, the phenomenon of folding is a recently discovered fact. Folding is responsible for the formation of mountain ranges. The earths crust, on which we live, is like a solid shell, while the deeper layers are hot and fluid, and thus inhospitable to any form of life. It is also known that the stability of the mountains is linked to the phenomenon of folding, for it was the folds that were to provide foundations for the relief that constitute the mountains. Geologists tell us that the radius of the Earth is about 3750 miles and the crust on which we live is very thin, ranging between 1 to 30 miles. Since the crust is thin, it has a high possibility of shaking. Mountains act like stakes or tent pegs that hold the earths crust and give it stability. The Quraan contains exactly such a description in the following verse: Have We not made The earth as a wide Expanse, And the mountains as pegs? [Al-Quraan 78:6-7] The word awtad means stakes or pegs (like those used to anchor a tent); they are the deep foundations of geological folds. A book named Earth is considered as a basic reference textbook on geology in many universities around the world. One of the authors of this book is Frank Press, who was the President of the Academy of Sciences in the USA for 12 years and was the Science Advisor to former US President Jimmy Carter. In this book he illustrates the mountain in a wedge-shape and the mountain itself as a small part of the whole, whose root is ...
Genesis and Geology The Channeled Scablands; Scientific Bias Against Catastrophism. "In the end, the truth of catastrophism did win, but it took more than 50 years to see the project through. And this was despite the fact that the event in question was relatively easy to document through field observations." EK Peters, No Stone Unturned: Reasoning About Rocks and Fossils, 1991, pp. 78 and 84. "Increase of knowledge about biology has tended to emphasize the extreme rigidity of type, and more and more to discount the idea of transmutation from one type to another--the essential basis of Darwinism." *McNair Wilson, "The Witness of Science, "Oxford Medical Publishlications (1942). "The theory [evolution] is a big mistake." *Louis Agassiz, quoted in H. Enoch, Evolution or Creation (1986), p. 139 [Aggassiz was a Harvard University professor] "To my mind, the theory does not stand up at all." *H. Lipson, "A Physicist Looks at Evolution", Physics Bulletin 31 (1980), p. 138. "From thealmost total absence of fossil evidence relative to the origin of the phyla, it follows that any explaination of the mechanism in the creative evolution of the fundamental structure plans is heavily burdened with hypothesis. This should appear as an epigraph to every book on evolution. The lack of direct evidence leads to the forulation of pure conjecture as to the genesis of the phylia; we do not even have a basis to determine the extent to which these opinions are correct." *PP Grasse, Evolution of ...
