Future volcanism at Yellowstone caldera

Future volcanism at Yellowstone caldera: Insights from geochemistry of young volcanic units and monitoring of volcanic unrest
Featured science article at GSA Today

Rumbley tumbley,
Yellowstone Caldera
Someday is going to
Just up and explode.

Even with tools like
Geobarometry
We won’t have time to
Get out of the road.

(you use two unfamiliar sesquipedalians in your abstract, you get a double dactyl.)

The Cantabrian Orocline

Buckling an Orogen: The Cantabrian Orocline
Featured Science Article in GSA Today, July 2012

Buckling in neat folds, the
Variscan Orogen
Rose from the earth’s crust
(And all of that schist);

So why are its ridges all
Subperpendicular?
Forces came later that
Added a twist.

(articles that suffer from superabundances of sesquipedalian hexasyllabicals may end up with double dactyls insead of limericks. Double dactyls are quite likely to make less sense.)
