You may try looking on all of the sites on "Buckminster Fuller" or "bucky balls". Buckminster was the originator of the geodesic dome. There might be some valid information connected with his name. I've built a couple of geodesic domes and in both cases, had them roofed by a roofing contractor who specializes in geo-dome roofing. He travels throughout the US and Canada roofing new domes and replacing roofs on those that were poorly done by others. Putting roofing on a geodesic dome, while not terribly complicated, is a little different than roofing traditionally pitched roofs with the occasional hip or valley or ridge or pitch change. The pentagons of a dome are constructed of triangles, each meeting the adjoining triangle on a different plane, creating a network of hips. To roof these effectively requires attention to detail and knowing to lace each course of shingles on each triangle well onto it's neighbor. I, personally, would be reluctant to roof a geodesic dome as a DIY project, and I've done quite a bit of roofing over the years.

Geodesic basically means transferring a straight line to a curved space. It means that, somewhere in the sphere, there should be a straight line that goes around it, curved.So, yeah, triangles are the only shapes that create those 'arches'.Every opening in a (standard) geodesic dome building is a triangular opening, surrounded by 3 struts.If you tried to use any shape other than a triangle (a square, pentagon, or hexagon), in a geodesic dome building, such an opening would be mechanically unstable.One can find many hexagons and a few pentagons in a (standard) geodesic dome building -- but there are no hexagonal holes or pentagonal holes.All the pentagons have 5 struts inside dividing them up into 5 triangles.(the center of these pentagons is the only place 5 struts come together to a point).All the hexagons have 6 struts inside dividing them up into 6 triangles.In a few geodesic dome buildings, one can find a few squares -- but likewise, all the squares have 1 or 4 struts inside dividing them up into triangles.The "C60 Bucky ball", named for R. Buckminster Fuller, is a truncated icosahedron (as mimicked by the common soccer ball) and has 32 faces with twelve pentagons and 20 hexagons.All fullerene molecules, including C60 and carbon nanofibers, have exactly 12 pentagonal openings and many hexagonal openings, but no triangular openings.(Such shapes are highly stable -- the forces between the carbon atoms in a fullerene act differently than the forces between mechanical struts in a building).Other geodesic spheres, polyhedrons, of various faces are also possible but the triangular face is the type most commonly used in construction due to the inherent strength of the triangle.

You can find the square footage of any shape, including a dome, by taking a few measurements in relation to its base. The base of any dome is typically a circle, and because of this, the measurement you must take to find the square footage is the radius.

First determine where the leak is occuring. If it is the result of a broken or missing shingle, you could temporarily fix the leak by emplacing a similarly sized piece of aluminum flashing while waiting to find a suitable replacement shingle. The new shingle may have to be fastened with suitable adhesive.
