Inside a mile-deep open-pit copper mine after a catastrophic landslide” Is a fascinating piece about the how what was essentially a local event went on the shake up the copper industry and “ultimately affecting just about everyone around the globe.” There’s also lots of pictures of the landslide itself and people wearing hard hats and Hi-vis vests.

Recommended – The Conversation

Launched in Australia in March 2011 The Conversation is an independent source of news and views, sourced from the academic and research community and delivered direct to the public. It’s tag-line “academic rigour, journalistic flair” hasn’t disappointed so far.

Useful, possibly

A visual introduction to radar remote sensing – with lots of animations and diagrams -find it here

Is this wise?

Not sure I should be mentioning it here but the UK now has an equivalent to rate your professor, rate your lecturer
