⚒ 'felsic' reptile 🦎 ▫️
geological mimetism! ▫️ this small creature is a reptile of phrynosoma sp taxa (commonly known as horned lizard). thanks to its granitic skin, it is perfectly 'stealth' over granitic rocks!

⚒ rolling stones!
▫️
mylonitic marble with amphiboles - ailao mountain range, china.
▫️
this microstructure is called a δ - object, from the shape of the greek letter δ (delta). it indicates recrystallization of a mineral during deformation. it looks more fluid than rocky, isn't it?

⚒ zumaia (spanish: zumaya) is a small town in the north of spain in the basque country.
▫️
the town has two beaches (itzurun and santiago), which are of interest to geologists because they are situated among the longest set of continuous rock strata in the world. ▫️
known locally as the "flysch" they date from the mid-cretaceous period to the present, a time period of over 100 million years. ▫️
the k-t boundary is present at the itzurun beach, and fossils can be found, notably of ammonites. ▫️
the strata stretches along a distance of about 8 km, between the towns/beaches of deba and getaria, with zumaia lying in the middle.

The draugen platform located 150km north of norway spans to a depth of 250metres. ▫️
this immense sea structure is designed with a single concrete shaft, integrated topside decks, and a concrete base facility where tanks are located for storing stabilized oil.
▫️
63,000 barrels of oil per day is produced by the draugen oil platform with a maximum capacity of 140,000 barrels per day. ▫️
the major oil reservoir that this oil rig sits upon is known as the rogn formation, an ancient marine sand bar ageing somewhere around the late jurassic. however, the second oil reservoir to the west of the rig, known as the garn formation, is aged to the middle jurassic.
▫️
gas injection, as well as water injection, are being used to increase production. new injection wells are currently being drilled, while more are being considered. ▫️

⚒ moody scenery at pancake rocks! 🏜
▫️
these limestone layers were once at the bottom of the sea (about 2 km below the surface), made of fragments of dead marine creatures and plants. ▫️
they were formed 30 million years ago. immense water pressure caused the fragments to solidify in hard and soft layers. gradually seismic action lifted the limestone above the seabed. mildly acidic rain, wind and seawater sculpted the bizarre and unique shapes.🏜

#repost - @purely.primary - ciclo da água representado por uma experiência simples e ao mesmo tempo genial. excelente trabalho da professora alma alexander - so cute! 🤗😍

i think i’ve found the most perfect water cycle experiment ever! 🌧 my kids loved it, it’s the perfect visual! 😍. i’m definitely adding this to my water cycle to-do list every year. i love the simplicity, all you need are storage bags, permanent markers, and something to tint the water with. .i think i’ve found the most perfect water cycle experiment ever! 🌧 my kids loved it, it’s the perfect visual! 😍. i’m definitely adding this to my water cycle to-do list every year. i love the simplicity, all you need are storage bags, permanent markers, and something to tint the water with. .

⚒ metamorphic reflections of garnet blueschists on a geologist hand lens, syros, greece.
▫️
this garnet-bearing blueschist is polished by the breaking waves of the aegean sea at kini beach on the greek island of syros. vibrant colors are from blue amphibole, red garnet, and green omphacite from retrogressed eclogite fragments. ▫️
i really do love this photo, which is one of the most beautiful and iconic snapshots from the field i have ever seen.
