Just going to introduce myself... my name is Scandrea.

I'm a grad student at Penn State University, still going through my first year. I did my undergrad and got my nickname at the University of Akron. Right now, I'm working on bedrock channel erosion- not the most exciting project for those outside of the field, but still pretty important.

Nice meeting you all!

YAY, another grad student! [Smile]

Sounds like your research really rocks.

[Frown] sorry, can't resist

Hehe, we are taking over...

Greetings Scandrea!

There's no prize for surviving your first year, not even a pat on the back, but there really should be. It gets better though, especially after quals.

Wow, what a warm welcome!

Don't worry about puns, maia, chances are I've used most of them myself!

Hi Scandrea [Smile]

Welcome to the GC forums. It's good news that you're not averse to puns - some people aren't too keen, but it's sort of taken for granite round here that it's ok to sneak one in every now and again.

Have fun and get posting! [Wink]

Welcome Scandrea. I keep hearing the prononciation of Scandrea they way Moon Zappa pronounced "Andrea" in "Valley Girl". Now it's stuck in my head.

Welcome Scandrea!! Have a cup of coffee, pull up a chair, and kick back. The Cosmic Bong is around here somewhere, but I forgot where we left it, it'll float by sooner or later. All we ask is that you don't bogart it. [Smile]

Good thing your on solid ground [Wink] with your Master's work.

Welcome to GC!

Manhattan in NYC, is glacial rock from a glacier that stretched from Canada a while back. It made the temperature cold enough in the surrounding areas to make ice delivery/production possible, by using lake water.

Too much information... I suppose .

Howdy Scandrea.  - Welcome to GC forums. I find no fault with your handle nor your *major. [Big Grin]

[Edit: *Oops. Make that 'field of study'.)

Greetings Scandrea.

So, did they name the Scan Andreas fault after you?

I fold in this ridiculous game of geology puns. It's completely eroding my confidence.

Oh, ah, hi Scandrea. Welcome.

another sedimental journey into the world of puns is over... that's a lode off of my mind
