  • What a Geologist can do in War - R.A.F. Penrose Jr.

    In 1917, after USA’s entrance into the First World War, renowned geologist and GSA President R.A.F. Penrose wrote "What a Geologist can do in War" - a brief brochure to commanding officers in the American military. Under a specially formed committee created in Jan., 1917 to assess the utility of geologists in war, called the Geology and Paleontology Committee of the National Research Council (NRC), Penrose wrote in layman terms about the many ways geologists could be used on the frontlines in the theatre of war. While Britain had been using geologists in front and rear echelon duties, for the first time US military strategists, who were typically unaware what geologists did beyond looking for oil and minerals, could see how to implement these pre-trained mountain-men.

  • Rice geologists study half-billion-year-old 'time capsules' on Texas ranch

    When you look at the cliffs overlooking the Llano River in Central Texas, it’s hard to imagine that they were underwater a half-billion years ago and formed part of the North American coastline during the Upper Cambrian era. But that’s what brought Rice marine geologist André Droxler and his team of researchers to a rare land-based expedition. “I never thought on land you could discover something,” he said. “To discover something in the middle of Texas, it’s pretty exciting.” According to Droxler, the Eagle Ridge Ranch located in Mason County near Fredericksburg has some of the best outcrops in the world containing fossilized prehistoric bacteria and microbes. He believes these microbial reefs contained the first forms of life on Earth. Droxler’s team was granted access to the land...

The Beijing High People's Court denied this request, and they denied it without explanation. We have filed a formal protest with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and await its reply." Xue Feng was arrested in 2007. He was working for a U.S. based energy consulting firm. The Chinese regime says he violated state secrets laws over the sale of a database on China's oil industry. That database, according to Xue, was public information at the time, and was only classified as state-secrets after he had bought it. Xue was convicted in July this year, and given an eight year sentence. His appeal on Tuesday ended without a judgment. Outside the appeal court, Senior U.S. Embassy official Robert Goldberg said the Chinese regime has not handled Xue's case transparently. Goldberg is calling for Xue's immediate release. [Robert Goldberg, United States Embassy Deputy Chief of Mission]: "We urge the High Court and the Chinese government to ensure fairness and transparency in the process of Dr. Xue's appeal. Dr. Xue has already served over three years in detention. We urge the Chinese to grant Dr. Xue humanitarian release and immediate deportation so that he can return home to the U.S. and reunite with his family." The Chinese regime is known for its vague state secrets laws. Rights activists say it's often used to silence critics of the regime.

Xue, born in China, is a naturalized U.S. citizen. He's been detained in China since November 2007 over the acquisition and sale of an oil industry database. Last July, he was sentenced to eight years in prison for trafficking state secrets. Then the U.S. State Department started calling on the Chinese regime to release him. [Jon Huntsman, U.S. Ambassador to China]: "I'm extremely disappointed in the outcome, although it wasn't completely unexpected. The original sentence was upheld, that of eight years in prison and a 200,000 RMB (Renminbi) fine. This has been a long, difficult and painful, painful ordeal for Xue Feng, but not only for Xue but also for his wife Nan and his two kids, Rachel and Alex. We have remained in regular contact with his family." Xue had negotiated the sale of an oil industry database to his then employer— the Colorado-based consultancy IHS Inc. He says the database was only classified as a state secret after the sale had gone through. Supporters of Xue maintain that he didn't commit a crime—that his actions never warranted a conviction under the Chinese regime's vague state secret laws. [Jon Huntsman, U.S. Ambassador to China]: "We ask the Chinese government to consider an immediate humanitarian release of Xue Feng, thereby allowing him to get back to his family and his way of life. He is a U.S. citizen and we take this case very, very seriously as we have over the last couple of years." Both Huntsman and the Obama administration have repeatedly pushed for Xue's release.

When you look at the cliffs overlooking the Llano River in Central Texas, it’s hard to imagine that they were underwater a half-billion years ago and formed part of the North American coastline during the Upper Cambrian era. But that’s what brought Rice marine geologist André Droxler and his team of researchers to a rare land-based expedition. “I never thought on land you could discover something,” he said. “To discover something in the middle of Texas, it’s pretty exciting.” According to Droxler, the Eagle Ridge Ranch located in Mason County near Fredericksburg has some of the best outcrops in the world containing fossilized prehistoric bacteria and microbes. He believes these microbial reefs contained the first forms of life on Earth. Droxler’s team was granted access to the land after working with Woodlands resident Donald Shepard and his wife, Rose, who own the ranch. The professor of Earth science also secured funding from four major oil companies that had interest in the research on microbial reefs. Since 2012 the Rice professor and graduate students have made many trips to Mason County, drilled more than 150 core samples and virtually mapped the area using a drone. Droxler said the three summers here “have been some of the happiest summers I have had in my life,” and he returns with the same excitement as the first time he paddled down the Llano River in search of half-billion-year-old “time capsules.”
