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.

Reorganized post containing videos of the tsunami

The March 12, 2011, post where I have been filing videos that show interesting phenomena during the tsunami has now been reorganized to reflect the location of the video, to our best ability to determine it. Corrections are welcomed, as are contributions of other videos. We are trying to collect as many as possible that show the rise of the tsunami over time (usually about 10 minutes). Footage that is taken continuously (without the camera being turned off) and that show clearly identifiable landmarks are especially helpful.
