Welcome Visitor:


Lecture Series

There is a new tab in the top navigation bar called "Lectures". This is the land based equivalent of "Cruises". I have back filled the land based lectures I have done since 2011. Since we are not cruising for the foreseeable future I have started planning more local talks (e.g., at the Merc, etc.).  I have also developed two new talks, one on "Science Machines" and one on "The Strange History of the Rocky Mountains".

Talk at the Merc

Dr. Ray and his Lovely Assistant will be presenting a talk on "Bad (Movie) Science" at the Merc Tuesday at 6 pm. Earth science is examined through the lens of science based disaster films. Fun will be had by Dr. Ray at the very least!

You May Wonder...

You may be wondering what is going on with the random travel pictures on the web site home page. The sad truth is that I have been very slow about adding travel pictures to the image gallery--very, very slow. I am an avid photographer and I have discovered that insurance shots and pictures from different angles can be useful. You may see where this is going.... I now have so many pictures from each place that culling and touching them up has become a major effort. This is particularly difficult in places that are very scenic, but where all the pictures are similar (such as Magadelefjord).
