Im Gegensatz zu anderen bearbeite ich fast alle meiner Fotos. Drum dauerts oft ein wenig länger, aber hier sind die Highlights meiner gestrigen Reise nach #Hinterstoder.

Los gehts in #Linz. Nicht mit Herbert, sondern mit #IC503. Aber "Herbert" ist später noch wichtig.
Der eigentliche Plan war einen Zug früher zu nehmen. Aber früh aufstehen ist nicht ganz so mei Sach. Außerdem wars durch die Schneefahrbahn ned ganz so einfach zum Bahnhof zu radeln.

Zum Glück hab ich in weiser Voraussicht im IC einen Radplatz reserviert.
Dank #CityShuttle Steuerwagen war auch ein bisserl #fensterAuf möglich. Außer mir war niemand im Fahrradabteil :)

A Reylo/Shifter AU text fic

Situated high in the White Mountains there’s a small town with a story about a lone black wolf that prowls the woods.

And photographer Rey Kenobi needs a vacation.

Want to know why some mountain ranges have steep fronts whilst others have gentle gradients? Check out my new paper with @AlexCopley_ in @AGU_GCubed. Summary below (1/5)

#tectonics #research #mountains #rheology

agupubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1029/20…
We combined results from oxygen isotope palaeoaltimetry in south east Tibet with numerical models to investigate the effect of lateral contrasts in the strength of the lower crust on the development of mountain ranges.
Key findings:
1. Lateral variations in lower crustal strength provide a first-order control on the shape and temporal evolution of mountain ranges
2. Strong lower crust in the Sichuan Basin can explain the development of topography in the Longmen Shan without #channelflow

Twitter needs more #waterfalls! SHARE some of your favorite GIFs, videos, photos of beautiful waterfalls here. Tells us as much as you can about them. Also, can anyone identify where this spectacular video below was taken?

#Nature #Rivers #Mountains

Seriously, can someone tell me where the #waterfall in my tweet above is located? The source account doesn’t list it. Many other accounts that have posted it in the past haven’t mentioned it. Someone knows where this is — help me out! 😊

#Waterfalls #Nature #Rivers #Mointains
Thanks to everyone — it’s Stigfossen in Norway.

For the last many years, mountains have witnessed an increased spate in trekking activities. Mass trekking activities have resulted in the deterioration of the mountain ecosystem. From Mt. Everest to Valley of Flowers, waste mgt is the new challenge for the hills!
#Trekking has been immensely famous amongst the youth residing in mega metropolises and other urban hubs of the country. Seeing it as a good economic opportunity, organizations have begun mass trekking activities which are proving to be fatal for the fragile #mountains!
#Himachal has been struggling to keep its remote and hilly areas clean. With increased trekking activities, plastic waste is a new problem for the villagers. But, organizations like @healinghimalaya have taken it upon themselves to address such a crisis!

A thread: What books can I use across the geography curriculum?

#primarygeography
This is not an exhaustive list but hopefully will give you a glimpse into the wide range of great quality books out there to encourage wider reading around geographical issues! I will keep adding to this as I have time. Please tweet with any suggestions!

#Thread How a weak EIA affects the fragile #Himalayan ecosystem? Missing from mainstream discussions, #mountains need a strong EIA policy. Sharing our first case study (with @ReDraftEIA2020) on rampant limestone and chromite mining in Mizoram.
#DraftEIA2020
#HimalayanWatch
Over a period of last 3-5 yrs, the hill state of #Manipur has witnessed a steep increase in state-sponsored #mining activities for #limestone and #chromite. The state has been assessed to be holding large reserves of these minerals. #DraftEIA2020 #HimalayanWatch
Further, the NDA govt's Act East policy has given a huge thrust to industrial activities in the entire NE region. In Manipur, several private and government players are now operating for mining of limestone and chromite minerals. The issue is, most of them are flouting EIA norms!

(1/7) A @ncaor_goa study: Glacier research is so treacherous at the “3rd Pole-the largest mass of ice & glaciers outside the #polar region”. Scientists in the Indian Himalayas [6Kft -17Kft] live on low oxygen, zip lines & paths blocked by giant boulder. bit.ly/3dfgsGC Image
(2/7)
1/3 of the glaciers of the Hindu Kush #Himalayas [2175 mile long] are in danger. “We haven’t even scratched the surface in understanding how fast the glaciers are melting & what happens next” says Sharma, a glaciologist with @ncaor_goa bit.ly/3dfgsGC Image
(3/7)
The mass balance of six glaciers of the many in the Hindu Kush #Himalayas range has alarmingly squeezed in the last decade to 86.9 sq. miles in 2019 from 115.8 sq. miles in 2009 & there are thousands like these.

#Iran

So if it comes to a invasion of #Iran there are several things to see and know. The #Geography is on the side of Iran. The #West is protected by a massiv #Chain of #mountains wich would be easy to #defend even with a weaker #army they could try to keep there a defend line
The north is not able to reach for the #US troops and the #caspiansee is #landlocked by many #nations. A inportant @NATO allie if the defens act works would be #Turkey wich would be forced to send troops against #Iran and a area mainly owned by #Kurds in #Iran.
the east has a little lower mountain chain and a bigger desert in the south west the #Dasht-e #Lut and is coverd by huge #rocks and the area of #Namak-#Zar inside Dasht-e Lut is the #hotest place on #earth actual. And the border area to #Pakistan is also coverd by a dry #desert

Heading around Europe @Interrail, Ist stop Brugge. Even more pleased that I’ve submitted a thesis draft for comment; there are gaps & some of it will need work, but the end feels closer; can ponder gaps while we #interrail #phdchat & hope to #takeabreakmakeabreakthrough 😎🚝 🇪🇺🙏
Brugge ✅ Köln ✅ heading to Berlin. Really enjoying travelling by 🚆 #interrail @Interrail
Sad to be leaving #Berlin in the morning; we’ve had a blast. My first visit to a fabulous city. Hope to be back. Next stop on our #interrail adventure #Innsbruck and the #mountains 🚅🚡⛰

#OSHO

The moment you #renounce #responsibilities you also renounce #freedom. These are the complexities of life: freedom and responsibilities remain and go away together.

More you love freedom, more you will be ready to #accept responsibilities.
But outside the world, outside the #society, there is no possibility of any #responsibility. And it has to be remembered that all that we learn, we learn through being #responsible.
#Escaping to the #forest and the #mountains, you are simply escaping from a learning situation.

In a cave in the Himalayas you won’t have any responsibility, but remember, without #responsibility you cannot #grow; your #consciousness will remain #stuck.

Please do not mention #Narcos or #Escobar when you hear Medellin!

Now sitting in on a session with @oeav on excessive ski area development in Tirol.
Lots of ski areas in Tirol, more lifts planned as resorts try to outrace #globalwarming. But it’s too much, says @oeav - seele-der-alpen.at
