This blog provides commentary on interesting geological events occurring around the world in the context of my own work. This work is, broadly, geological fluid dynamics. The events that I highlight here are those that resonate with my professional life and ideas, and my goal is to interpret them in the context of ideas I've developed in my research. The blog does not represent any particular research agenda. It is written on a personal basis and does not seek to represent the University of Illinois, where I am a professor of geology and physics. Enjoy Geology in Motion! I would be glad to be alerted to geologic events of interest to post here! I hope that this blog can provide current event materials that will make geology come alive.

Kung Fu Bear!

Sometimes it's just worth taking a break from normal science and watching something captivating. A short version of this video of a bear affectionately named "Kung Fu" was circulated the past few days, drawing a lot of press coverage. The controversy was whether or not this is all a fake. This video is a longer, edited version put out to prove that this bear and his act are real! Maybe we tool-wielding homo sapiens evolved from bears? Go, Kung Fu Bear!!
