Eruptions is moving!

Big news from Eruptions (and me.) Eruptions has always been an evolving space – it started as a little side project on WordPress that has grown over the last two-and-a-half years into a community of volcano enthusiasts. The blog has drawn over 2.5 million views and 1.5 million visits since I started it in May…

I am back from our trip into the Mountain West – and it was great (see some of the pictures below). We hit Yellowstone, the Grand Tetons, the Tobacco Root Mountains, Glacier and Craters of the Moon – and the weather held out on us just fine. This week is the last week before classes…

Summer Schedule Part 2

Well, the summer is rapidly coming to an end – classes start here at Denison on August 30. So, we are trying to squeeze what we can out of the season and to that end, I’ll be on one of these things called “vacations” for the next couple weeks. (Oh yeah, and I will be…

Back from the field

I’m officially out of the mountains in the Mineral King area – the field work went great, we collected some fabulous Triassic-Jurassic rhyolites from a pendant in the Sierra Nevada Batholith (and also enjoyed blueberry-sized hail and an unfortunate hike through a thorny thicket). I’ll have more to say later, but now I’ll be diving…

July Break Open Thread

New eruption? New volcano research announced? New media attention put on all things volcanic? Post it here and feel free to discuss … I’ll be back July 20.

Thanks for all the words/advice about Pepsigeddon here at SB. If you missed it, the powers that be have officially pulled the plug on the PepsiBlog. However, this crisis (as much as blogging can be a crisis) has reinforced a lot of long-standing problems with the management here at SB, so not to sound like…

One other thing …

This hiatus for Eruptions lead me to do one thing I said I would never do … but strange times call for strange measures. Eruptions has opened up a Twitter account (and I feel a little dirty about it), so if you want to follow the sporadic posts that might show up there, you can…

A pause for thought.

If you haven’t heard, ScienceBlogs HQ has put its foot squarely in its jaw thanks to a little poor decision-making. Now, Eruptions is a little outside the mainstream of ScienceBlogs – there aren’t many corporations that might influence my posting (unless you suddenly see “Eruptions – brought to you by RyanAir” the next time an…

Anniversaries times two

Chaiten in Chile erupting on May 5, 2008, four days after the volcano came back to life after ~9,000 years of dormancy. Quick post … but until I was reminded by Eruptions reader Guillermo, I had forgotten two important anniversaries. First, today (May 1) marks the 2nd anniversary of the start of the Chaiten eruption…

Thanks a million!

A brief, non-volcano-related note, but sometime between 12:30 and 1 PM EDT today, Eruptions will pass 1,000,000 page views since joining ScienceBlogs in March of 2009. I wanted to thank everyone who has made the blog such a fun thing to do and who pick up on reporting the events when I’m swamped. You’ve made…
