I'd like to introduce a new geo blog, Apparent Dip. He's a geochemist, an error propogation nazi, he autoposts earthquakes, he's funny, he has a catchy title, and he likes me. What more could a blogger ask for?
I'm a geochemist. In the past ten years I've fixed mass spectrometers, blasted sapphires with a laser beam, explored for uranium in a nature reserve, and measured growth patterns in fish ears, and helped design the next generation of the world's most advanced ion probe. My main interest is in-situ mass spectrometry, but I have a soft spot in my heart for thermodynamics, drillers, and cosmochemistry.
