AGU 2013

(So apparently I forgot to hit "publish" back in December... oops)

Off we go to AGU!

Monday, December 2, 2013


So, while I'm not really into twitter OR Seventeen Magazine (or nail polish... let's be honest), I do love all the nerdy photos with #ManicureMonday tags.

So, I thought I'd join the tradition, and show off some fun shots of my dirty nails next to cool fossils (and other geology things)

A Late Triassic (Norian) Sphinctozoan sponge (a hypercalcifyer that lived in a reef)
An awesome Late Triassic (Norian) tabular coral with (probable) annual growth bands

The end-Triassic Extinction horizon from the Newark Basin!

CAMP Basalts, 201.520 million years old!

Iron-rich regolith pisoids from Australia! 

Crenulated stromatolites from the Duck Creek Dolomite (~1.8 billion years old), Western Australia
