I don't want to sound too presumptuous with the name Active Tectonics, but that is the sub discipline of earth science that interests me (study of deformation of interest to society). It is also the name of my research group at Arizona State University (ASU): activetectonics.asu.edu. Furthermore, my old blog was rather unimaginatively named arrowsmith blog. And, as you would see if you clicked on that link, the web site is very slow, has security problems with most browsers, and is no longer supported by ASU.
I am not a big blogger, but I like to put ideas, opportunities, other tidbits out there that might be of interest. I started my last blog August 15, 2007 and had about 60-70 posts.
To write a blog requires of course that one has something interesting to say. I hope that will be the case here. I invite comments on the posts. May they promote clarification and collaboration.
Here are number of links to my local piece of cyberspace:
- J Ramón Arrowsmith home page at ASU
- Active Tectonics Research Group at ASU
- Earth Surface Processes Groups of the Schools of Earth and Space Exploration, Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment, and Geography at ASU
- School of Earth and Space Exploration at ASU
- OpenTopography (I am coPI and chief evangelist for this high resolution topography project)
- EarthScope (I just became director of the EarthScope National Office at ASU and the chairman of the EarthScope Steering Committee. I expect we will have a blog over there as well.).
