A few notes on the Geosonnet series
I will try to keep them going on Wednesdays as long as I can manage, but I have some travel coming up, so they might be a few misses if my queue runs down.
Selection of a paper for poetry does not constitute an endorsement of the methodology, or agreement of the conclusions; basically, it means that the paper caught my eye and I read it (
Reading and understanding the paper is
generally the biggest timesink here).
I mentioned in the science week poetry wrap-up post that I can take several approaches to the sonnets- explaining the geology, explaining why the methodology was cool, or just waxing poetic about the broader impacts. I’ll continue to pick whichever approach takes my fancy at the time I write them. I generally blog from the paper copies, so don’t expect to see anything from online previews straight away.
Please feel free to comment. It is fantastic that some people have been commenting in verse, but don’t feel compelled to do so if you can better express your thoughts in prose comments.
They can all be found under the label of "Rheologic Rhymes" (because they are strained).
