Paleoclimatology and Sulfide

My main background is in chemistry and I am currently working on a geochemistry research project studying reactions between oxyanions and sulfur. From what I understand the earths oceans were heavily sulfidic for a good portion of its history. This would mean the reactions could be of interest in studying past climates, I know rhenate is valuable for this. However would metalloid containing oxyanions be able to provide similar information? Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

Thinking about returning to academia after a few years in private industry, paleoclimatology

Hey Guys! Will try to keep this as short as I can, bear with me...

As the title states, I've long had the goal of re-entering academia to hopefully work on a Paleoclimatology (or similar) PhD program in the States. While it is a drawback for some, I miss the structure of an academic institution, the mentorship on both sides of the aisle, and just the unexpected nature of what project might come next. Hell, I might as well start preparing under quarantine! While I've been out of the geoscience research community for a couple years, I believe my background is pretty niche and absolutely is in demand*...somewhere...*

In short, my scientific interests lie at sort of the nexus between the spatial and the temporal--I want to 'drill' into past environments (pun intended) while also utilizing the array of geotechnical skills I have to offer. Hopefully my resume I post below will communicate that to some degree.

Quick summary of my background:

  • Bachelors double major in Environmental Geology and Geography. My research here focused on Holocene sediment reconstruction of the Potomac River estuary, as well as an undergraduate internship at USGS Hydrology Dept.
  • Masters in Geospatial Analysis. My capstone involved combining LiDAR + bathymetric datasets as well as more sed core/paleontological research. The deeply unfortunate kicker here is that my closest adviser and mentor, who trained me in seds/strat/oceanography, passed away a few years ago, which leaves no academic connection to speak to my paleoclimate background :(
  • Private industry: GIS team lead at a public-facing web mapping application for a year and a half, then detoured away from geospatial working at a top tier job search site as pretty much an intelligence analyst for another year and a half. I am now working in a role in the O&G leak detection business which allots me the freedom to pursue whatever interests me in the geospatial field--such as LiDAR, AI/ML modeling, open source geospatial data processing/analysis/development, etc, so I am open to any suggestions of what you reckon I could pile on to my list of skills.
  • Side projects: Python for AI/ML applications, learning web development, big time geology nerd, UAS/satellite analytics, paleoclimates (obviously), and anything that tries to combine these interests. Unfortunately it's sort of niche subject to work on without institutional affiliation.

My questions for you guys in this sub are:

  • Have any of you transitioned from academia

Paleoclimatology jobs?

I’ve been looking at grad schools (MS) and I find myself interested in Paleoclimatology and paleoceanography.

I was wondering about the job prospects for those types of jobs those people do after grad school. I realize a PhD is needed for academia, and maybe for working for an O&G foraminifera firm. Is there any positions for a masters student?

Any thoughts or insight ?

Can someone recommend me a book/website/article where I can read about sedimentary deposits and paleoclimatology?

Heyy everyone!

I am interested in learning about what sedimentary rocks/minerals/structures are specific for some formation mediums (young/mature rivers, deltas, glaciers, lakes, desserts, etc.) and how they did appear. I think this topic is a bit related to paleoclimatology, because I first came across it in the context of determining the position of tectonic plates in the past...for example, a cross-bedded sandstone indicates the existence of an antic dessert.(I am very curious what is the reasoning behind this statement)

Thanks for reading!

SERIOUS: This subreddit needs to understand what a "dad joke" really means.

I don't want to step on anybody's toes here, but the amount of non-dad jokes here in this subreddit really annoys me. First of all, dad jokes CAN be NSFW, it clearly says so in the sub rules. Secondly, it doesn't automatically make it a dad joke if it's from a conversation between you and your child. Most importantly, the jokes that your CHILDREN tell YOU are not dad jokes. The point of a dad joke is that it's so cheesy only a dad who's trying to be funny would make such a joke. That's it. They are stupid plays on words, lame puns and so on. There has to be a clever pun or wordplay for it to be considered a dad joke.

Again, to all the fellow dads, I apologise if I'm sounding too harsh. But I just needed to get it off my chest.

This is a bit of a different one, but any job ideas for someone looking to leave geology?

I realize this is a bit of an unusual request on this forum, but I would really welcome any advice you might have.

I have a HBSc. and MSc in hard rock geology and left my PhD program in the same field because of the pandemic. My professional skill set is based in structural geology, mapping, isotope geochemistry, paleoclimatology, and mineral exploration.

Problem is, I'm over it. After a whirlwind of life and health changes, as well as family health crises, I'm looking at the field and realizing I just don't want to do this any more. I haven't had the greatest experience in academia and the corporate world has been inconsistent, and while my financial needs are pretty low, I would like to have better work/life balance and stability. Working for mining or O&G also isn't consistent with the life I want to live any more, and environmental work has largely been a bust professionally. I enjoy teaching, science communication, and do illustration work on the side, but don't have formal qualifications in these things (eg. I TA'd and tutored for a long time, and did some freelance scicomm stuff here and there, etc). I am really extroverted and personable and have been told I'm great at speaking and writing about technical topics. I'm also currently working on building up an illustration portfolio and social media presence in the hopes that it'll help me in the future. I love being outdoors - that's what drew me to geology - but I need to remain in my current (large) city most of the year for the time being. Remote working would also be a major plus.

My goal is to find some work that uses some of my knowledge of earth science and environmental processes but will allow me to gain experience and expand my skill set to leave the mining world. I'm considering things like science writing, museum work, etc, but frankly I could use some ideas. I'm open to doing certificate programs or part-time to expand my skill set but would need a bit of time before a full-time program would be something I'd consider again.

I live in Canada, and speak two languages fluently (English, Russian) and am working on improving my French.

Thank you for any advice you might have!

Just because it's a joke, doesn't mean it's a dad joke

Alot of great jokes get posted here! However just because you have a joke, doesn't mean it's a dad joke.

THIS IS NOT ABOUT NSFW, THIS IS ABOUT LONG JOKES, BLONDE JOKES, SEXUAL JOKES, KNOCK KNOCK JOKES, POLITICAL JOKES, ETC BEING POSTED IN A DAD JOKE SUB

Try telling these sexual jokes that get posted here, to your kid and see how your spouse likes it.. if that goes well, Try telling one of your friends kid about your sex life being like Coca cola, first it was normal, than light and now zero , and see if the parents are OK with you telling their kid the "dad joke"

I'm not even referencing the NSFW, I'm saying Dad jokes are corny, and sometimes painful, not sexual

So check out r/jokes for all types of jokes

r/unclejokes for dirty jokes

r/3amjokes for real weird and alot of OC

r/cleandadjokes If your really sick of seeing not dad jokes in r/dadjokes

Punchline !

Edit: this is not a post about NSFW , This is about jokes, knock knock jokes, blonde jokes, political jokes etc being posted in a dad joke sub
