… for an interview with me! But there are lots of other reasons to go there as well, The Reef Tank is a great and thriving site. Thanks to Ava of The Reef Tank for setting up the interview.

Other Reef Tank interviews of geological interest: Volcanista, Suvrat Kher (‘Reporting on a Revolution’), Mathias Koester (‘The Lost Geologist’), Erik Klemetti (‘Eruptions’), Brian (‘Clastic Detritus’).

Eruptions - one year old today!

Dr Erik Klemetti’s flourishing Eruptions blog is one year old today! In that year, Eruptions has become an essential resource for everyone interested in volcanoes and what they are up to. By way of a blogiversary tribute, here’s my choice of five great Eruptions posts:

Happy Birthday to Eruptions, and congratulations to Erik on a year of well-deserved blogging success.

That unusual and always interesting corner of the web Environmental Graffiti (‘an eclectic mix of the most bizarre, funny and interesting environmental news on the planet’) has a long-standing and thoroughly admirable interest in volcanoes.

Their latest article of volcanic interest, ‘Anything for the perfect volcano shot!’ by Karl Fabricius, talks to Dr Tom Pfeiffer of VolcanoDiscovery about the excitements and dangers of volcano-visiting, and includes some stunning photographs from the heart of the action in Hawaii.

Dr Erik Klemetti’s Eruptions blog is now at ScienceBlogs 13 March 2009

The Lords of the ScienceBlogs Universe have obviously been paying attention to the movers and shakers in the world of geoblogging. Not long ago Kim at All of My Faults Are Stress Related made the move to ScienceBlogs, and today comes the news that Dr Erik Klemetti of the excellent Eruptions blog is following suit.

It’s great to see that ScienceBlogs is not only expanding its geology content (that has to be good news – far too many biology/biomedical types running amok over there), but has taken volcanoes to its heart. It’s a recognition not only of the quality of Erik’s blogging, but the fascination and importance of the subject he blogs about.

The new home of Eruptions is at http://scienceblogs.com/eruptions/.

UPDATE, 20 March 2009: Erik has migrated the archives of the old Eruptions blog over to ScienceBlogs. This seems to mean that some – not all – of the links to old Eruptions posts no longer work. There are a lot of links to Eruptions posts in this blog. I’m sorry if some of them are now broken, but it’s beyond my control.

Every hot rocks fan should see the video that Callan Bentley has up at his NOVA Geoblog of the successful attempt by a friend and colleague of his to make lava in his backyard, using just two rock samples and an acetylene torch.

This is a bit slow of me, but I’ve only just become aware that The Volcanism Blog is included in Regator, a superior hand-crafted blog aggregator. It’s one of the twenty blogs that make up the ‘geology’ channel, including such first-rate places as Magma Cum Laude, NOVA Geoblog, Eruptions, Highly Allocthonous and Olelog, and was added on 11 December 2008. The Volcanism Blog’s Regator profile is here.

To be included in Regator a blog has to be regularly updated, on-topic, well written (‘good grammar is good for you’ – three cheers to Regator for that), have an RSS feed, have original content, not be spammy, and be ‘awesome’ (their word). Well, I take it very kindly that this blog has not been found wanting in these respects, and furthermore is believed to be awesome. Thanks.
