Japanese documentary crew filming today

A film crew from the Japanese tv network NHK was in the AZGS offices today in Tucson, interviewing Chief Geologist Jon Spencer [far right. Photo credit Mike Conway] about the role of geology in creating and influencing the nature of the Sonoran desert.

A theme of the documentary is to explain why the American Southwest deserts are so different from others such as the Gobi and Sahara deserts.
