    We were trying to determine the tectonics of the region around Yucca Mt. Death Valley was on the active side.

    Wernecke has gone on for years in the Basin and Range since I was in the field with him & co.

    look for my eSci diary series Thursday evening.

      some of the tectonic research, such as what you describe. I'll see if I can and send it to you via your profile's email. I was once a GPS surveyor (and topographer mapper) with the USFS but I never got to have the fun doing what you and the others were doing. About the closest I've ever come to plate tectonics is that of an educator. Can you imagine the world at one time laughed at Wegener's hypothesis??? By the way, how long were you associated with Wernecke? I think a fellow field institute instructor also worked with him. I am going to check on that, too.

      Treat the world (yourself, and others) as part of a living organism. Everyone and everything will benefit.
