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 joined Twitter as “aboutgeology” in February 2009. Since 2011 I’ve been writing a weekly post for KQED, first in Quest Science blogs, writing about geology of the greater Bay area, then as a KQED Science Contributor.
You can write to me at geology at andrew-alden dotcom, and mind the hyphen. You can make a PayPal donation to support my work here—info on this page.
