Welcome!

Today is Valentine’s Day – a perfect day to kick off my new blog focusing on my love of earth sciences!

In writing this blog, my aim is to highlight and promote earth sciences research. There’s a lot going on and I’m hoping to convince you to share my enthusiasm.

There will be regular posts on what’s new in earth sciences, looking at the latest research findings and ideas. I have a passion for forests, lakes and fossils, so these are likely to feature heavily in my posts.

They say ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’, so I hope to connect you with some of the best earth science images from around the world as well as links to some great resources on the web.

Why is my blog called ‘science to the core’? For the answer to that question, keep an eye on my upcoming posts…
