91. Showers of Glass [Journals] [SIS Review]
... tektites could also have been formed from the relatively thin layers of sedimentary material lying on the ocean beds. This removes a remaining serious objection against the impact melting hypothesis: one does not have to produce a crater on land to be able to account for tektite fields. Although tektite fields have been correlated with major hiatuses in the geological and palaeontological records (Workshop 3:1 , p. 18; 3:3 , p. 18), Smith does not allude to this evidence in his catastrophist summary. This is perhaps surprising for it is good evidence. He comments that: ". .. the cometary impact hypothesis is no less exotic a mechanism for the production ...

... the Cretaceous Period will ever be seen to have a simple explanation. There may well have been not one impact but several [11], which would fit in with the data presented by Officer and Drake. Attempts to show that species died out rapidly in response to an impact are limited by the nature of the evidence. The Berkeley palaeontologist Lowell Dingus has argued that "although catastrophic amounts of extinction might have occurred at the C-T transition, it seems unlikely that we can distinguish episodes of extinction lasting 100 years or less from episodes lasting as long as 100,000 years. Consequently, acceptance of catastrophic hypotheses based on these stratigraphic records seem improbably optimistic at this time[ ...

... audience. Peter's article dealing with these and related subjected has just appeared in the 1987 Review. Dr Trevor Palmer spoke next, on the subject of "Nemesis for Evolution Gradualism?": a fuller account of his talk will appear in article form in future SIS publications. He gave a detailed summary of the various trends towards catastrophism in palaeontological thought over the past few years. Ever since Alvarez it had become almost respectable to view mass extinctions as caused by extra-terrestrial bodies. If the trend continued then the establishment might become more open to the idea of more recent catastrophes. Unfortunately, the lively and interesting discussions which started up had to be curtailed due to lack of time ...

94. Briefings [Journals] [SIS Review]
... their immediate job is not so much to argue that their theories are correct as to persuade other people that they are sufficiently interesting to be taken seriously and then tested. Nobody at this stage can tell whether the theory the Alvarezes have launched will stay afloat or eventually sink. But if they can capture the interest of others - geologists and palaeontologists in particular - there is no doubt that a lot more will be known about the details of the Cretaceous - Tertiary extinction. To travel, so to speak, is in itself worthwhile, even if it might be better to arrive." We wonder: Does Maddox know all the "rules of the game"? - R ...

... where there was danger from the oscillating tide hills, which alone built up stratified rocks and preserved in them samples of life. Regarded from this point of view, man does not appear to have been derived from anthropoid apes, a derivation of the latter from the anthropoid or humanoid root would appear much more likely. But these and similar palaeontological problems are already well beyond the pale of a geological book, and beyond the knowledge and judgment of the present author. By way of conclusion to this chapter, it might be of value to summarize its content as follows. The ages of great geomorphological change are also times of great biomorphological mutation; any alteration in the physical make-up ...

... as operant in intergalactic and interplanetary space - a potential revolution in its own right. The Saturnians, Dave, Ev and Dwardu presented a salvo of compelling mythological work which we are hoping to take on the road to the Whole Life Expos this spring and summer. Robert Bass unveiled new orbital dynamic material produced by his own orrery program, palaeontologist Robert Dunlap showed clips from 4 of his video productions about extinctions and meteor craters and after some prompting and cajoling, managed to get a handle on Ted Holden's sauropod scaling argument. C. J. Ransom provided much needed comic relief with his witticisms and ironies regarding basic resistance to Velikovskian catastrophism. And it was generally agreed at the ...

97. Evidence for the Marine Deposition of Coal [Journals] [SIS Review]
... of a marine organism. Through the years this small annelid has been declared a salt-water worm throughout the geologic column except in the coal measures, where the supposed evidences for the in situ origin of coal made difficult the interpretation of Spirorbis at its face value [9 ]. Consequently, seemingly without much question on the part of geologists and palaeontologists through the decades, this worm when found in coal and coal-bearing rocks has been designated a fresh-water dweller. This position has been taken despite the facts: (a ) that Spirorbis today is completely limited to the marine environment. (b ) that it reproduces by means of a trochophore larva, which, though characteristic of several marine ...

... must be involved. The Great Dinosaur Extinction Controversy by Charles Officer and J. Page, 1996, $23.00 No, not another book about the CT impact but a refutation of this theory by some geologists. It seems that the theory has gained acceptance due more to the pushing power of its protagonists than the strength of the palaeontological evidence. The final pages are entitled Pathological Science', which could give readers an insight into how supposedly objective scientists really work.

... nevertheless it is recommended as a popular account of the subject. GROWTH RHYTHMS AND THE HISTORY OF THE EARTH'S ROTATION edited by G. D. Rosenberg and S. K. Runcorn Wiley 1975. Using the history of the Earth's rotation as a unifying theme, the editors present a collection of papers spanning various aspects of geophysics, astronomy, palaeontology and biology which survey methods of measuring the Earth's rotation, past and present. The direct techniques comprise biological growth increment measurement and ancient and modern astronomical observations, while the indirect methods involve theoretical calculations based on geophysical assumptions such as tidal friction, planetary expansion, decay of gravity and convection within the Earth. A useful - and interdisciplinary ...

... : the Ries Kessel after more thana century of investigation, does not yet seem to have produced an explanation capable of obtaining unanimity between geologists or petrographers, among whom lively discussion still continues. Mr Gallant's book will be discussed by everyone concerned, not only the geologist and petrographer, but also the physicist, astronomer, palaeoclimatologist, perhaps the palaeontologist (about the mixtures of faunas and the problems of the extinction of species) and the archaeologist. It is right and salutary that wide discussions should take place on problems of such fundamental interest for the history (and for the future!) of the planet. The author by no means claims to have discovered one master-key solution; ...
