🇨🇦Canadian Graduate students "privileged" enough to obtain federal scholarships receive a salary that hasn't been updated for 19 years. Most of us live under the poverty line. Tomorrow we'll be marching at the #SupportOurScience rally to PM @JustinTrudeau 's offices. Come join us!

Happy anniversary to the largest landslide in recorded colonial history… this landslide tried to take me out as I was conducting a sample program in the valley… but like a worn out hero story I used that lesson to set me on this amazing career path.

Note the lava spattering at the edge of the molten lava versus recently cooled lava. I am unsure exactly what to call these vents. The closest match seems to be a pressure ridge but I’m not sure. Anyone know if there is a better term? #iceland #volcano

CONGRATS to @T_Unnsteinsson , MSc (to be)! Tryggvi wrote an excellent thesis and gave a beautiful, clear defense on "Modelling glaciovolcanic caves and chimneys." Such cool work & interesting applications to hazard mgt. I look forward to seeing what Tryggvi does next! 🙌🗻

El volcán 🌋 Sakurajima ayer emitió potentes pulsos de ceniza y gases de nuevo. Es un volcán activo cercano a Nagoshima, en el sur del Japón 🇯🇵. Impresionantes imágenes de la columna tomadas desde un estadio cercano.

Nella giornata di ieri il vulcano #Sakurajima (Giappone) ha generato una modesta attività esplosiva chiaramente visibile in tutta l'area cittadina di Kagoshima, la famosa Napoli giapponese. Si tratta di uno dei vulcani più attivi al mondo.

Traversing through steam clouds of the Mt. St. Helens lava dome and fumarole field last year with Hedorah Cave and Rodan Cave below. We named Hedorah cave after the smog monster in Godzilla lore. Venting in rocks here can be 90 degrees C.
