Chinese Geoblogosphere

Reactions:  
Some recent visits from China to my blog and the recent post of Silver Fox on Looking for Detachment led me to start a small search for the Chinese Geoblogosphere. Surprised as I was I discovered a few geoscience related blogs in Chinese. I don't speak Chinese, google translation is...."funny" but they are obviously talking about geology there. I don't even know how to correctly translate the names of the blogs or their authors so I decided to simple post the links and my personal interpretation of what their names might be like. If you are Chinese and find my translation to be total nonsense please excuse my ignorance. I'd be most grateful for a correct name translation and I will correct them as soon as I can. The list is by no names complete I think. If you are not listed accept my excuse.

UPDATE: hawkman (see comments) was kind of enough to reply and inform me about the correct translations for the Chinese Geoblogs! Thanks a lot! Corrections included below.

Geography Time http://www.comgeo.net/

Shao-Ji-Cheng's Blog http://www.sciencenet.cn/u/Majorite/

Liu Jishun's Blog http://www.sciencenet.cn/u/yuelugj/

About Rock and other http://www.kongcuo.com/

Hawkman's Blog about earthquakes http://hawkman.tasuo.org/

GeoIdea http://www.geoidea.org/

365 Geo http://www.365geo.com/

It is a shame I don't understand a word of Chinese. The Google translation often provides very funny results.
