Ask GeoMan!

This is your chance to ask GeoMan any earth or space science question you want. Be warned, however: the "nature of nature" is such that I may not be able to come up with a reasonable answer! If I can't, I will be sure to tell you (as opposed to making up some bogus response). As many questions as possible will be answered here on these pages so others can benefit from your interest.
