All right, so I'm still caught up in summer research (and have managed to catch some sort of cold, which is ridiculous at this time of year). Until I get back to more regular posting, I offer for your reading pleasure a guest post on the American Geophysical Union's blog The Plainspoken Scientist:
"Why I Blog: Jessica Ball (Magma Cum Laude)"
The AGU blog just started up in March, and they already have some excellent guest posts up (including one by Callan over at Mountain Beltway, who started blogging around the same time I did).
I have some excellent photos to go along with my next installment of Volcano Vocab (which is sadly no longer a regular feature, but I'm going to work hard to get back to it). Look for the post before the week is over!
