Fermentation is an essential part of the brewing of beer and other alcoholic beverages, but that process is also involved in the making of a wide variety of foods. They’ll be on display and, in many cases, available for both sampling and instruction at the Farm to Fermentation Festival in Santa Rosa this weekend. Here’s a preview.
The small meteor fragments that burned across the North Bay night sky 22 months ago apparently originated in the huge planetary collision in which our moon was formed, some four and a half billion years ago.
Because the falling meteorite happened to pass through the range where his cameras were focused and recording, SET's Dr. Peter Jenniskens was able to predict its path as it dispersed and came to Earth, and calculate it's far longer trajectory on the way into our atmosphere.
How many white sharks are swimming in California’s coastal waters? A new survey debunks an earlier claim that the marine predators’ numbers are declining, and that the species as a whole is endangered.
Sharks are generally solitary creatures, says George Burgess, but they can be found in sizable groups at locations where their preferred food sources are abundant.
The Sonoma and Marin coast is dotted with such “aggregation” sites for the Whites, Burgess adds, such as Goat Rock Beach near Jenner, and around the mouth of Tomales Bay.
