‘Central Rocks”: Washington’s virtual geology

Dear friends,

I’m passing along links to some wonderful geology field trips on the east side of the Cascades. These are virtual field trips hosted by new subscriber Nick Zenter of the geology faculty at Central Washington University. Visit his website, ‘Central Rocks’, at http://www.geology.cwu.edu/geologytv/ . You can select ‘Roadside Geology’ and immediately take field trips to cool spots in eastern Washington hosted by Nick. You can also listen to interviews with top drawer geologists working in various places all over Washington and elsewhere in the world (China, Hawai’i…). And last, you can watch public lectures by some of the folks in the interviews about the geologic work they are doing.

Another of Nick’s projects is a collaboration with Tom Foster called Ice Age Floods. This is about much more than those stupendous events. Scroll down at the blog http://iceagefloods.blogspot.com  to find video shot by Tom as he flies around eastern Washington geology sites in his ultralight.

Both of these links are now listed in the ‘blogroll’ in the right side margin of Northwest Geology Field Trips. There is more stuff on those two sites than you can shake a stick at. (What in blue blazes does THAT mean, anyway? And, just what is a blue blaze? Are there green ones?)
