Texas Educational Seismic Project (TX-ESP) promotes inquiry-based learning and investigative methods in earth sciences for K-12 classrooms.
TX-ESP augments Texas teacher’s 5E lesson plans with inquiry-based learning methods. TX-ESP’s goal is to expand linear problem solving skills of the K-12 student towards an enhanced creative analysis and assessment skillset. TX-ESP uses seismology as a stimulating teaching tool to accomplish this goal. The program aligns with TEKS requirements by teaching students about seismology and seismic waves, plate tectonics, earthquakes, volcanoes, and mountain building. Finally, the curriculum and discussion materials intend to help students learn to reframe traditional science lessons into a dialogue of scientific inquiries with open-ended, boundless investigations about the world around us.

Others include "We've incrementally improved the estimate of this coefficient," "Maybe all these categories are wrong," and "We found a way to make student volunters worse at tasks."
The Cold War marked the proliferation of nuclear weapons and testing, with both sides monitoring detonation of nuclear devices via seismology—one of the only ways to reliably identify underground nuclear explosions across the globe.The U.S. and its allies established a network of seismometers around the world in part to keep tabs on Soviet nuclear capabilities, while the Soviet government needed a seismic station located as west as possible to help track U.S. bomb tests. Quiet Kašperské Hory, devoid of the cultural seismic noise that people produce as they go about their day (with the exception of military activity), proved to be an ideal location for both nuclear surveillance, and for germinating new ideas...

This Wednesday, 14 April 2021, 11 a.m. MDT, the Geological Society of America is hosting a webinar on "Professional Geologist Licensure Requirements: Tips for the Exam and How Certification will Help Your Career"
Duration: 1 hour
Registration Link: https://lnkd.in/dMenbv9
Details: Having a license to practice geology is a requirement in the majority of U.S. states, Canada, and other countries. Learn about professional licensing requirements and how becoming licensed can influence your career opportunities and career success. Laurie Racca will present a discussion of the national licensing exams for geologists prepared by the National Association of State Boards of Geology (ASBOG). She will discuss the purpose of the license, qualification requirements (education, experience, exams), and the Geologist-in-Training Certificate. Shanna Schmitt will present a discussion on the ASBOG®️ Practice of Geology (PG) exam, including when to sit for the exam, how to study, why being licensed is a great idea, and some advice for early career professionals. Jazzy Graham-Davis is a certified Geologist-in-Training in the state of California and they will be sharing their advice on the GIT process and the FG exam.

after weeks of observation, we have a new eruption in Iceland
Icelandic Meteorological Office - IMO on Twitter “The first image of the eruption. Taken from the Coast Guard helicopter. The southern end of the lava flow is about 2.6 km from Suðurstrandarvegur. According to initial information, the fissure is about 200 m long.”
This is beyond cool!!! Mapping the INTERIOR of another planet is astounding!!! Beyond the gratification of information, here's a good reason to care about how Mars is comprised:
"Mars once had a strong magnetic field generated by liquid sloshing its core; but that magnetic field dropped dramatically over time, causing Mars's atmosphere to escape into space and the surface to become cold, barren, and much less hospitable to life than Earth's."
Seismic ripples reveal size of Mars’s core Mars becomes the first inner planet after Earth to have its core measured.
Vancouver is a gorgeous, wonderous city to visit (and live!) - but have you ever wondered how vulnerable the city's skyline is to ground shaking from earthquakes? What you should know....
High-rises at risk: Building codes underestimate Vancouver’s seismic hazard - Temblor.net State of the art simulations reveal that Vancouver’s tall concrete buildings are especially vulnerable to some types of seismic waves.
I knew my Mineralogy class and crystal lattice structures would come back to haunt me 2nd 🙃
COVID-19 lockdowns created a rare opportunity to help researchers in revealing hidden aspects of campus environments due to low levels of seismic noise.

ShakeAlert® (https://www.shakealert.org/) is an earthquake early warning (EEW) system that detects significant earthquakes so quickly that alerts can reach many people before shaking arrives. ShakeAlert is not earthquake prediction, rather a ShakeAlert message indicates that an earthquake has begun and shaking is imminent.
