Today’s post is an article I wrote for the June issue of AEG News, the quarterly magazine published by the Association of Environmental and Engineering Geologists. The article, as you will […]
April in Northeastern Ohio seems to emulate the old rhyme “April showers bring May flowers.” At least to some extent. Add in a few days of snow, sleet and freezing temperatures, and alternate back and forth throughout the month, and you’re now talking the typical spring-time weather in this area of the country.

It was during one of these not-so-rainy days that I was able to visit one of the consequences of our early spring weather.
Some favorite (and popular!) songs containing lyrics which reference geologic processes and phenomena.
Not the typical Friday Photo Entry, but one that may appeal to the engineering geologists out there. Located in Cedar Bluff, Virginia, just East of U.S. Highway 460, this piece of engineering ingenuity resides immediately adjacent to the Norfolk Southern railroad.
A brief introduction to the everyday things you take for granted which are brought to you by your friendly neighborhood geologist. Future posts may expand on many of these topics.
