    I love our dynamic earth!

    It's just so amazing, I've learnt at school something so unbelievable. Did you know: there's over 2,000 seismic waves in the earths mantle and inner & outer core. Also, seismic waves usually go in a straight line but the convection current in the mantle stops it. How amazing!

    Fascinating Earth

    I'm fascinated by the stories the rocks tell about the ancient history of the Earth. Living as I am presently in a country with more than its fair share of volcanic and earthquake activity, I have plenty of opportunity to study the results of this often violent history.
