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

This year, Bureau of Geology scientists wrote radio scripts that focus on various aspects of geologic mapping. These radio spots are scheduled to air at 7 p.m. each day from October 21 to 24 on KUNM.

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 radio in 2009 to create a week-long series on the geology of New Mexico. We have posted podcasts of these radio spots in case you missed them or want to hear them again.
