Opening the Gene Box of a Key Ocean Species
"This week in the journal +Nature Publishing Group, a worldwide team of 75 scientists revealed the genetic blueprint of the one-celled alga Emiliania huxleyi, which may be the most important species you’ve never heard of. The genomes of the domestic dog and cat are interesting, but the E. huxleyi genome is a much bigger story. Some day this organism may become another of our partner species, as vital to us as yeast."

Fremont was a leading wine region for a while, but its foremost winery was built right on the Hayward fault. The S.F. Earthquake, 107 years ago today, destroyed it. But as I was writing this piece I started fantasizing what kind of wine region the East Bay might have been if a few things had gone differently. Oakland might have been a noted sparkling-wine appellation, with all those Bay-cooled sand dunes in today's downtown. And the Fruitvale reds might have been world-famous. If only...

Argentine ants are transforming our local soils. Maybe Earth sees us the same way: an aggressive invasive species that's wreaking havoc in the global ecosystem. Remember, Anthropocene starts with "ant."

Our geology blogger, +Andrew Alden, says #geology is a perfect pastime for dates. Here’s a list of romantic spots for Bay Area geologists (and those who love them).
2013-02-09 02:00:46 (0 comments, 0 reshares, 1 +1s)
Hey, I would like to collect some romantic stories involving geology from any of you folks reading my posts. Did you tie the knot in a cave? Pop the question on a lava flow? Get giggly on a glacier? I'm thinking that the fling you had once at that big overseas meeting might be kind of generic, though, unless you can work a fossil species into it or something. Post here or write me at geologyataboutguidedotcom. TIA.

Placing a Bet on the Surface of Mars
Curiosity, the most recent robot rover, has especially piqued +Andrew Alden's curiosity as a geologist.
"I think there are two reasons: the darn thing has finally become a decent field assistant, and +NASA is sending it to some of Mars' most Earthlike places. So let me channel the late Huell Howser here and share some of what makes me go, "That's amazing!"

I was taken aback, in a discussion on Salon, when a commenter said, "Look, [so-and-so] is a geologist," by which he meant to say (I think) that so-and-so could only be a blinkered dupe of the oil industry. So I'd like to hear some examples of weird and even dangerous ideas that people have about geologists.

Geological Outings Around the Bay: Las Trampas Regional Wilderness
"Each day thousands of people take the back road between Castro Valley and San Ramon through Crow Canyon. They all pass the road up Bollinger Canyon. A handful of people take that road to an unassuming park that holds the highest hills between Mount Diablo and the Bay. Here the rocks between the Hayward and Calaveras faults have been pushed together and rumpled upward into chaparral-covered ridges laced with smaller faults. Both quiet and rugged, Las Trampas Regional Wilderness is an archetypical California place."

Johannes Kepler tried to understand his cosmos through mathematics and music. The music of the spheres he came up with inspired this set of chamber pieces that has been an earworm in my household for several years and counting.

Side Trips from Interstate 5: The Eastern Klamaths
"This is an ambitious side trip that you might try on your next trip north to Portland. At Redding, you turn left off the freeway and instead of the 70-mile burn up I-5 to Weed, you take about 120 miles and 3 or 4 hours extra to meander through some of California's most unusual country: the peridotite lands of the eastern Klamath Mountains."

Geological Outings Around the Bay: Los Trancos Open Space
“Due south of Stanford, way up in the high hills, Los Trancos Open Space Preserve offers an excellent place to study the San Andreas fault. The preserve has a well-annotated trail that will show you good examples of the odd landforms and disturbances found all along the fault from Point Arena to the Salton Sea. Craig Rosa presented this trail for KQED QUEST a few years ago, and I can’t improve on that. But since that time, geologists have gained a thrilling new tool for seeing landscapes: lidar mapping.”

Did you know that sand sings?
"Singing sands, also known as booming dunes, were once the stuff of legend. Marco Polo reported them from the steppes of central Asia. Nineteenth-century travelers and scientists, including Charles Darwin, observed them. Twentieth-century researchers recorded them, played with their sand in the lab, and tried mathematical models on them. This week a new paper is coming out in Geophysical Research Letters that marks a new proposition in the genteel argument among scientists over singing sand."
