    Great work you have done. I followed your blog in the past regarding your work done with modelling and back calibration of landslides! I would like to ask you some for some advice and your collaboration in a part of my research. Please let me know if you would be interested. Keep up your good and interesting work!!!

    Dear Mike
    I am doing the research on landfill failure and I am looking for the software to model the post-failure profile for it. I am trying to see if it is true to use DAN-W or DAN3D for this issue regarding that the material in this model is Municipal solid waste.

    Do you think that it is a good model to estimate the travel distance and other characteristics of landfill failure?

    Best regards

    Enjoyed your volcanic discussion on “The Leonard Lopate Show” (WNYC) Jan. 9, 2015.
    Quick question: Are volcanoes necessary for the creation of diamonds? I believe that in the State of Arkansas, diamonds are still to be found in,volcanic pi8pe.
    (I was just thinking that since Edinburgh, Scotland, is built on the site of an extinct volcano –“Arthur’s Seat”– with a little digging, diamonds might become a Scot’s best friend!)

    Dear Mika

    Just wanted to let you know that I’d be happy to be included in an article about Vera Rubin. She was incredible, and encouraged me during some dark times in my career.
    I also work on mapping dark matter albeit using a different technique, so we stayed in regular touch meeting at conferences and so on.

  5. Hi Mika,
    In response to your question regarding Vera Rubin, yes I did know her, although not well. However, I did serve with her on a small committee that managed to convince the American Museum of Natural History to start a research department in astrophysics. If you want to ask anything, please contact me by email as per below.

    cheers, David
