A light-hearted blog about all things geomatic as seen through the filter of Ruth Adams, a chartered surveyor. It won't be comprehensive, it'll be hydro biased but, hey, it may make you smile ;-)

Nobody can have failed to miss what happened around Haiti on 12 Jan. You can easily see how the earth moved from this buoy . Ok 'only' a 15 cm wobble but a wobble of that size on a buoy is still pretty big on the land. And it's not a wave aberration - this is a true depth change. Big time stuff. I've been in an earthquake and it wasn't fun. But I was OK and walked on the next day. Some aren't that fortunate.
