Seismic Geophysicist
WHAT YOU DO: Use computer simulations to look at how the Earth's surface moves over time, compare this with information from satellites to better understand the earthquake cycle, and use it to create disaster response products and plans. EDUCATION: Depending on whether you want to teach at a college, go into industry, or work for a research lab, your educational path will be slightly different. Start with an undergraduate degree, usually in Earth Science; you'll need at least a master's degree if you want to teach, and to be a tenured professor at a research institution, a PhD. Strong background in math, physics, Earth science, and solid mechanics is also important. USEFUL SKILLS: Computer programming, writing (for writing grant proposals), communication, and leadership skills. How to get in: Working in labs as a student, publishing papers (as a part of a professor's or student's research team), and going to scientific meetings to network are all ways to get yourself out there and meet people that can help you. If you're interested in research, you'll need your name on as many publications as possible by the time you start looking for a job. CAREER PATH: In industry or a research lab, getting an internship while in school then pursuing a job at any lab or related company will get your foot in the door. In academic positions, you'll start out as a researcher with some teaching responsibilities; after years of research and experience, you can become a professor with full tenure. PAYBACK: For an academic researcher with a master's degree and 3-5 years of experience, the average salary is about $69,000. With a PhD, you'll make more. If you work in industry, you can work with a bachelor's or a master's and make anywhere from $40,000-$50,000, depending on degree and experience. DOWNSIDES: Securing funding can be a challenge. You spend a good part of your time writing proposals to make sure that your research is paid for, so that you can continue working on what you love. FUTURE OF JOB: Teaching positions at universities are becoming increasingly competitive, as are positions at research labs. Jobs in industry (oil, mining, geotechnical) vary, depending on the market, but can also be competitive depending on the economy and region. NETWORKING: Professional Societies: American Geophysical Union Seismological Society of America Geological Society of America Other Resources: Southern California Earthquake Center (has student internships and other educational resources) Jet Propulsion Laboratory (look on Education page, has lots of resources) NASA (education page has resources) US Geological Survey (has a bunch of educational resources) Earth Science departments at universities/colleges Produced, shot and edited for the National Science Foundation by instructors from the Gigniks program. -Ali Sanford (LACES 12th grade)

Petroleum geophysics  Marwan Charara
Принято считать, что запасов нефти хватит на несколько десятилетий, а человечество уже прошло углеводородную стадию своей истории. Это не так. Без нефти можно обойтись в энергетике, но нельзя ее заменить в производстве полимеров, из которых сделан современный мир. Разведка и добыча углеводородов — амбициозная высокотехнологическая задача. Для ее решения используются методы геофизики, химии, математического моделирования, алгоритмы машинного обучения — и не только. В совместном курсе ПостНауки и Сколковского института науки и технологий «Наука нефти» (https://postnauka.ru/courses/84610) профессора магистерской программы «Нефтегазовое дело» рассказывают о последних достижениях своей науки #НаукаНефти

The World's Longest Salt Caves at Mount Sodom
NEWS DESK | After initially discovering the salt caves of Mount Sodom decades ago, Hebrew University officially unveiled their findings on a tour for the press, inside Mount Sodom. Our Shelby Weiner has the story. Story: Deep inside Mt. Sodom on the coast of the Dead Sea lies a newly revealed secret. In the heart of the geological formation, water and the passage of time have slowly carved out what is now the world’s largest salt cave.  The Dead Sea is famous for its high salt concentration and the hills surrounding it are formed of salt deposits layered with dust and cap rock rising from the ground. These hills are famously peppered with networks of caves -- most famous of which are the Qumram caves which for centuries housed the Dead Sea scrolls.  But the Malham cave, just off of Highway 90 along the coast of the Dead Sea, is home to a different kind of secret.  Dated at some 7,000 years old, a network of cave chambers and channels have slowly been carved out of the mountain by rain water dissolving the salty layers of the hill. A scarce 50 millimeters, just under 2 inches of rain falls in the area annually. But that small amount of water has hollowed out a spectacular space beneath the earth’s surface. Malham was initially discovered by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (HU)’s Cave Research Center (CRC) in the 1980’s, with Amos Frumkin, CRC founder and director, mapping about 6 kilometers.  But it was only recently, with modern technology, that the full magnitude of the cave was revealed.  All the nooks, crannies, tunnels and caverns of the cave total over 10 kilometers (6.2 miles), earning it the title of world’s longest salt cave — a title held for the past 13 years by Iran's Cave of the Three Nudes (3N) on Qeshm Island. The length of the 3N cave comes out to about 6.5 kilometers (4 miles).   When the Dead Sea cave was first discovered nearly 40 years ago, teams had to use measuring tapes to map the distance. A team of 80 people from nine countries, led by the Hebrew University of Jerusalem Cave Research Center, Israel Cave Explorers Club, and Bulgaria’s Sofia Speleo Club, calculated the cave network’s staggering size using technology that can be used on a smartphone or tablet. 'Now we use tablets and a technology called DistoX, a laser disto-meter,' Boaz Langford, the head of the 2019 Malham Cave Mapping Expedition explains to i24NEWS. 'It measures length, inclination and direction with the same tool and sends the data directly to the tablet so. The Accuracy of the measurements is much better.'   The cave’s length was not created in a straight, linear fashion. Rather it creeps through the mountain in multiple layers, with smaller channels branching off the main “path”, wherever water seeped in and dissolved the minerals in its way. Inside the Malham cave is an ever morphing landscape of riverbeds, chambers, tunnels and stalactite rooms.   It’s no easy feat to reach the heart of the cave. Portions are just big enough to crawl through on one's stomach, while others tower overhead. One room, nicknamed 'the guillotine room' perfectly demonstrates the unique, and sometimes volatile nature of the location’s geography.  In this room, the ceiling is almost perfectly horizontal, but is dissected by a vertical wall which has split from its surrounding layer and fallen, leaving a perfect gap stretching above it into the earth.  'What's really interesting about this piece is that the angle of the layers in this part of the mountain are not horizontal,' Yoav Negev, Chairman of the Israel Cave Explorers Club tells i24NEWS.  'This illustrates how the mountain was formed. This mountain formed by pressure. All the salt layers that used to be the bottom the Dead Sea are being pushed up like out of a tube of tooth paste,' Negev says For more, see our ⬇ Website Articles: https://www.i24news.tv/en Live: https://video.i24news.tv/page/live?clip=5a94117623eec6000c557fec (Subscription) Replay: https://video.i24news.tv/page/5a97b81f23eec6000c55857d?utm_source=youtube.com&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=the_rundown&utm_content=en2 (Subscription) Social Media Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/i24newsEN/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/i24NEWS_EN Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/i24news/

Student life at FLC: A day in the life of Jake
What is it like to be a student at Fort Lewis College? In our "Day in the life" series, we'll explore student life at FLC through the eyes of our students. In this episode, we meet Jake, a senior Biology major who aspires to be a veterinarian. On a typical day, Jake hikes up to campus, meets with his research advisor in the Honors Program, goes to his neurobiology class, and works at a local small animal veterinary clinic. *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* Fort Lewis College is the Southwest's crossroads of education and adventure. Our blend of small classes, dynamic academic programs, and a liberal arts perspective leads to transformative learning experiences that foster entrepreneurship, leadership, creative problem solving, and life-long learning. And our unique & beautiful mountain campus, on a mesa above historic Durango, Colorado, inspires an active and friendly community with a spirit of engagement, exploration, and intellectual curiosity. Fort Lewis College 1000 Rim Drive Durango, CO 81301 [email protected] 877-352-2656 http://www.fortlewis.edu *-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-* Transcript Hi! I'm Jake Rodgers, I'm a senior Biology major at Fort Lewis College, and this is a day in my life. I usually wake up around 7 am, then I meet up with my friend Alex, and we walk up to campus. One beautiful thing about living in Durango, Colorado, is that you can hike just about anywhere. So hiking to school is my daily routine. On the Nature Trail on the way up to campus, I usually get to see lots of wildlife along the way, and it's a wonderful way to start off my day. When I get to campus, I meet up with my research advisor Erik Juergensmeyer, one of multiple senior research advisors that I have here at Fort Lewis. One beautiful thing about Fort Lewis College is that you get to work closely with published authors, who are your professors, to help guide you individually on your personal research projects. Then I go to my Neurobiology class, where we talk about lots of great things -- from pain reception all the way to cognitive functions and memory. After class, I go to work, where I work at a vet clinic in town. It's a small animal vet clinic, where I get perfect experience for what I'd like to do ultimately as a career path. I'd like to be a veterinarian, so here I get the experience of checking in clients, meeting the patients, coordinating and telling them all the vet's information, and I learn a lot that way. Then I get to practice my skills actually giving treatments, and this reassures me that this is exactly what I want to do as a career. After that, I usually go home, meet up with my brother, who is also my roommate. We have dinner and discuss some of the interesting things that I did throughout my day. Then we wind down, and that's a day in my life. Thanks for watching!

Meet a Geophysicist: Jenny Nakai
Jenny talks about her interest in engineering and science as a means to be useful and solve problems and the importance of education in the Navajo culture in general. She explains how resource extraction such as coal mining has had a negative environmental impact on the Navajo land and how, in the past, few tribal members have had the knowledge and training to deal with these problems or to educate the public about ways to solve them. Today, she is committed to sharing with others what she has learned through her studies and to helping scientists communicate their findings to the broader community. Video produced by McLean Media.

Additionally, it’s inorganic, meaning there are no carbon-hydrogen bonds, like sugar. Lastly, it has a crystalline structure. Under special microscopes, we can see that muscovite’s atoms are fixed in a specific, orderly pattern. 0:41 A key muscovite characteristic is its cleavage. Since it’s crystal structure has weak bonds in one direction, it can easily split into thin sheets. This feature made it useful to create window panes in Russia, where it was known as Muscovy glass. 0:58 On Mohs hardness scale of 1-10, muscovite is rated as a 2, which is softer than a fingernail. When it is ground, its pearly luster is comparable to the shimmer of this eyeshadow. 1:11 In nature, muscovite can be found in igneous and sedimentary rocks, but most commonly in metamorphic rocks, specifically those with foliation. Derived from Greek words meta and morphe, metamorphic means “to change form.” During metamorphism, pre-existing rock (also called a protolith) is subjected to intense heat, pressure, and sometimes hot water. Foliation occurs because some of the minerals have a preferred orientation when the rock is exposed to the pressure and temperature changes, which in turn, gives metamorphic rocks their striped appearance. 1:50 The protolith for metamorphic rocks containing muscovite are usually shales, sedimentary rocks that are made of clay and silt. Without melting, the atoms recrystallize to change the shape and size of the minerals or form new minerals. The intensity of metamorphism indicates how minerals develop. The most common types of foliated rocks include slate, phyllite, schist, and gneiss. 2:17 Some of the most valuable muscovite used in cosmetics is sourced from pegmatites, a type of igneous rocks with extremely large crystals because the magma has more time to cool. 2:28 In the early 1800s, muscovite was mined in the United States throughout the Appalachian and Rocky Mountain regions but production later declined as industry preferred inexpensive micas from India. 2:41 Now that you know how muscovite is formed, check your makeup bag. There’s a great chance Earth’s glitter bomb is right at your fingertips.

Volcaneology/Geophysics Seminar with Dr Erik Klemetti
Title: Using crystal ages and compositions to understand how volcanoes come back to life Abstract: Volcanoes spend most of their existence not erupting. This doesn’t mean that there aren’t a multitude of magmatic processes going on underneath. These might include intrusions of new magma, crystallization of existing magma, magma mixing and movement of crystals through the “crystal mush” that sits under the volcano. These processes all leave their compositional and temporal signature on the crystals that form and are subsequently incorporated into the magma that does erupt. I will discuss how examination of zircon crystals in magma can help us unravel the timing and nature of events that occur between volcanic eruptions with a focus on the evolution of the Lassen Volcanic Center in California. Overall, current trace element and U-Th disequilibria age data derived from zircon suggests that an otherwise moribund magmatic system can be brought back to life (rejuvenated) by new intrusions of magmatic that are geologically ephemeral, lasting years to millennia. This conclusion means that the events that lead to the 1915 eruption at Lassen Peak unfolded rapidly before the explosive eruption, the only to occur in California in the last century.

Cornwall Castaway - Newquay Activity Centre
Hi I’m Rob Barber and I’m director of the Newquay Activity Centre. We are two time winners of the Cornwall Tourism Awards and we are number one ranked on Trip Advisor. I am here today to talk to you about our brand new activity, The Cornwall Castaway. So, what happens in this activity? We re-enact an important historical moment that happened 100 years ago. 100 years ago, right at the end of our headland on the Cribbar reef, a ship was getting wrecked on the reef and the lifeboat men from Newquay rallied together to save that ship. Some of those men decided that they didn’t want to go out and deemed it too dangerous, but a maverick crew decided to go and try to save the folk that were going down in the ship wrecked vessel. As soon as the lifeboat hit the water, it capsized. It was crazy high seas and it was freezing cold as it was December. Luckily for the lifeboat crew they knew the coast and managed to swim using the currents and the ocean swell and get themselves washed into a cave called the Tea Caverns. They managed to survive for 3 days and 3 nights by foraging and living off the fat of the land and keeping warm together before they escaped the cave and got back to the town and were recognised as heroes for their gallant bravery. So this leads us to what we are doing today. We are going to relive that by doing some Coasteering, some climbing, some scrambling, some caving, some jumping into deep water plunge pools, we are going to go into some caves and create a fire and learn some foraging skills. Once we have created our fire we are going to do a little bit of cooking. We are then going to escape that situation using one of our Super Stand Up Paddle Boards which is the nearest thing we have to a modern day raft and we are then going to paddle to safety. Do you think that you have the minerals to do it? Well you tell me. Get in touch with us, it’s the most awesome group activity Newquay has to offer.
