Hi people.
Hail citizens!!

I think most of you know me, but here's the summary.

• Used to be a surveyor, specialising in mining, engineering and laser scanning work.
• Got bored and did my undergraduate in Geology and Geophysics and Applied Geology.
• Then did Honours. Thesis was "Quantifying lake hydrological and isotopic responses to climate change: A coupled hydrologic-isotopic mass balance model applied to two Australian maar lakes"
• Now working on my PhD, continuing on from my honours project.

And I take photos sometimes.

Lol. Thanks.

A better description would be, I take lots and lots of photos, most of which are average, but a few of which I quite like. :D

Hi Martin!  Did you ever check out that pyramid thing you were looking at?

I can't remember. I thought we'd sorted out the great pyramid, with the most boring explanation possible for the concavity in the faces - my hypothesis was that the removal of the outer casing knocked off more of the core stones in the middle of each wall, than on the corners (as less outer casing stones were knocked off the corners.. :D
