The rock and ice mechanics lab at Lamont-Doherty is led by PIs Heather Savage, Christine McCarthy and Ben Holtzman. We are in the process of growing our lab and building our experimental program. Along with a team of postdocs, undergrads, grads, and longtime staff engineer Ted, we are rehabilitating and revamping some of the old equipment and building new rigs for exciting new experiments on both rock and ice. You can follow along with our progress here.

off-site adventure

This week Heather and I attended a conference for the Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC), held annually in Palm Springs. I got a gorgeous view of the Grand Canyon during the flight over.
Heather and her colleague presented a poster about earthquakes in the US "triggered" by the 9.0 Tohoku-Oki earthquake.
In between talks and posters, I was able to sneak away to our hotel room to catch up on my journal reading and enjoy the unusually mild Palm Springs weather.
