Hello and welcome to my personal blog site http://www.Gold-Geo.com. My name is Dr. David Gold and this site is designed to give readers an insight into life as a professional geoscientist, some thoughts into new and emerging (as well as historical) geological research and techniques, the status of my current research and stories about some of the beautiful places, people and creatures I have been lucky enough to visit.  I hope you find reading this site entertaining, educational and enjoyable!
