I’m Andrew Alden. As a writer, I cover the Earth sciences for the whole planet and its neighbors. But my city of Oakland is full of interest too, and since I tramp around it a lot I reserved this spot to think locally. I’m also “aboutgeology” on Twitter. And in 2011 I started a regular gig at KQED Quest Science blogs, writing about geology of the greater Bay area. You can write to me at geology at andrew-alden dotcom, and mind the hyphen.
