Earth Matters: Field Notes on the Geology of New Mexico's Enchanting Landscapes

The American Geological Institute has been organizing Earth Science Week since 1998 to "help the public gain a better understanding and appreciation for the Earth Sciences and to encourage stewardship of the Earth." In celebration of Earth Science Week, we began collaborating with the staff at KUNM in 2009 to create a week-long series on the geology of New Mexico. We have posted podcasts and scripts of these radio spots in case you missed them or want to hear them again.

KUNM, 89.9 FM is a public radio station that broadcasts from the campus of the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque, NM.
