I will be doing a series of posts highlighting excellent (recent) geophysics articles that I feel could be used as a starting point for teaching current theories on topics in the field.
A summary will be provided of the article, and some discussion points.
If you feel a paper should be used in this series, please feel free to leave a comment or send an email. Or, if there is a topic you would like to be highlighted (origin of plate tectonics, future Earth, etc) then please let me know (as otherwise I will just write about papers that I currently quite enjoy).
