In the last week and a half I have completed finals, gone camping, started my intensive Statistics class and had my sister out to visit for a few days. Tomorrow, I leave for Denver to visit family, so no big post until next week.
I would liketo put up a short post on a current event. Here link to the blog of a Geomorphologist from Illinois and his takes on the problems with current media coverage of the disastrous flooding along the Mississippi. http://lrrd.blogspot.com/ There are quite a few posts, so I will put up a couple which I think are important.
This one explains the reasons for a floodway.
This one breaks down poor media coverage of the flood with an article from The New York Times.
See you next week!
