I did a really terrible job of updating during the Geological Society of America meeting - mostly because (a) I was way too busy, (b) an iffy internet connection at my home and (c) a lack of concentration.

However, there was quite a bit of interesting info I heard which I'll likely post tomorrow including:

  • The northern Cascades of the US are filled with calderas.

  • The eruption of Kasatochi was quite impressive (if you didn't think so already).

  • Bubbles at Erebus come from deep down.

  • Holocene volcanism in Colorado.

Thanks to all the people I met this week as well, including Callan Bentley, Tuff Cookie, Ron Schott and others.
