We have posted a web version of a field conference that we led in Italy last summer. If you are from Italy, or planning on visiting and would like some ideas of places to visit with geological significance, check out our Italy Field Guide.

Check out the new versions of our English posters. We've updated their looks and shrunk the files for easier download. Enjoy!

Part 2 of our blog on scientific revolutions has been posted. Take a look!
