Hello everyone! My name’s Ryan and I’m an undergrad at Portland State University where I’m majoring in Earth Science and minoring in Space and Planetary Science. When I’m not studying or working I can be found doing research at the Cascadia Meteorite Lab. I’m currently working on deciphering the thermal history of a shock dike in a type 6 ordinary chondrite. I’m interested in just about anything related to geology, astronomy, skepticism, general science and beer. When I have free time I like to cook, hike, travel around Oregon and read different science blogs.
Contrary to the title of my blog, I don’t really write about glaciers. I chose that name because my blogging interests are as varied as the sediment that you’ll find in glacial till. I tend to write mostly about meteorites and planetary sciences, but I also like to write about general geology, skepticism, and the life of a science undergrad.
All writings and opinions on this blog are my own and not that of my advisers or anyone with whom with I work at the meteorite lab. In other words, I alone am responsible for all content on this blog.
Thanks for stopping by!
