— About —
GondwanaTalks is an online magazine on natural science for a wide audience, focusing on earth science and providing a link to society, humanity and the planet. The story of nature is unraveled, going back into time, far beyond the age of humans, across the geological ages, as we explain why Earth looks the way it does today.
I found that there was an excess of information on the Internet, and yet I could not find answers to many questions relating to nature. My searches always ended in an aimless clicking from one page to another. That's why I decided to write my own articles and offer them to people with the same interest. I want to better understand the complexity of nature and make this knowledge available in a style that is easy to read, yet without compromising quality.

Dr. Roseanne Chambers. Geologist / Geographer / Writer.
Roseanne from California has travelled the world for work and she was most astounded by the country of Peru, which unites breathtaking landscapes and an impressive cultural heritage. She searched literature to learn more about it but no comprehensive books seemed to exist. Therefore, she decided to write such a book herself, which is now in progress: The Monumental Andes. Roseanne also writes articles for her blog (www.roseannechambers.com), about the Andes, the Incas and their ancestors, and about volcanoes, earthquakes and other geological topics.
