151. Anomalous Occurrence of Crocodilia in Eocene Polar Forests [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 33]. Dawson and Hickey in the early 1980s co-authored a paper in Science where they argued that certain plants show up in the fossil record 18 million years earlier in the Arctic than elsewhere while some animals evolved 2 to 4 million years ahead of their time north of the Arctic Circle. 1.8 Geological Context Of High Arctic Fossils Palaeontologists usually date rocks by biostratigraphy. The special problems caused by the Ellesmere Island faunal fossils prompted Dawson, West and Hickey in 1980 to commission a palaeomagnetic study of the Eureka Sound Group. Details of the Earth's magnetic field reversals for the past 80 million years have been compiled into the geomagnetic reversal time scale'. By measuring the direction ...

154. The Paleo-Saturnian System [Journals] [Aeon]
... ." But when the Saturnian configuration fell apart, it was said that the North Star took its place  and, in many instances throughout the ancient world, the North Star continued to be directly associated with the planet Saturn.  Moreover, as indicated elsewhere,  and also below, geological and palaeontological evidence favors the present north polar region as having faced the primordial Saturnian sun. Even so, there is a possibility that Ethiopia and the Afar Triangle had also once faced proto-Saturn, and that the concentration of continents known as Pangaea had once been located at one of Earth's polar regions. But this would have had to have been during ...

... of energetic mantle convection break through in the form of hot spots with initial vast outpourings of magma; in the case of the C-T boundary the Deccan Traps in India are the evidence. Triassic comet New Scientist 24.11.90, p. 25 The extinction event which ended the Triassic period was one of the three largest in the palaeontological record. Discoveries of shocked quartz at the boundary, together with the pattern of extinction has led some workers to postulate an impact event similar to that which is thought to have ended the Cretaceous period. Gradualism holed by the Great Barrier Reef New Scientist 20.10.90, p. 15 Samples of core sediments drilled on the ...
156. Geomagnetic Reversals? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... a meeting with another cosmic body of comparable size and in close proximity for a brief period. That such meetings can occur at relatively frequent intervals seems to be feasible based on existing data. That such events have occurred seems to be confirmed by data from many fields of study. Data from studies of geomagnetism, volcanism, ice ages, palaeontology, oceanography, archaeology, history, astronomy and even mythology could be explained by such events, not only individually but particularly in the otherwise puzzling interlinking and coincidences of phenomena across these diverse studies. The theory has taken recent data such as that on magnetic reversals, together with the links to other phenomena such as faunal extinctions, ice ...

... , p. 45 Recent observations of Pluto obscuring a dim star indicate that the most distant known planet of the Solar System is not the barren rock it was thought to be, but probably has an atmosphere. Revisionist dinosaurs source: New Scientist 8.10.88, p. 22 The latest finds of dinosaurs in China have led palaeontologists to revise their ideas of the history of these beasts. It seems that Chinese dinosaurs were different from those elsewhere and must have been separated from them for most of their history. Ebabbara evidence source: Archeologia 224, (Paris, 1987), pp. 18-27 Carl Olof Jonsson has kindly sent us a summary of this interesting paper ...
158. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... , p. 15 Insects diversified very early in their evolutionary history and, contrary to popular belief, they actually slowed down their rate of evolution after the arrival of flowering plants. Over the last 100 million years they appear to have been little affected by mass extinctions although few vertebrate families extend back even a third of that time. A palaeontologist remarked, Maybe insects are playing by a different set of rules'. Pulsed evolution New Scientist, 24.7 .93, p. 32 A new champion of Eldridge and Gould's theory of punctuated equilibrium is Elisabeth Vrba. She considers that big evolutionary changes are triggered by climate changes and that in the absence of environmental change evolution ...

... explanatory diagrams and more references for the uninitiated. However, even at its relatively high cost I consider it essential reading for the interdisciplinary scholar with a background in physics. Wal Thornhill THE SECRET OF CRETE by Hans Georg Wunderlich (translation copyright, MacMillan Publishing Co. Inc. 1974) The late Professor Wunderlich held the chair of Geology and Palaeontology at Stuttgart University. In 1970 he was in Crete doing some geological research, and visited the Palace of Minos at Knossos. He was surprised to find that the "precious alabaster", used as a construction material in so much of the Palace - walls, floors, stairways and so on, and mentioned rather enthusiastically in many ...
160. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Evidence of Palaeo-indians across North America around 11,000 years ago is usually in the form of obsidian or chert tools but now evidence has been found that they fixed spear points and knives to wooden hafts with glue made of melted amber. Around 1000 years earlier than evidence for the Clovis culture, someone butchered a mastodon, according to a palaeontologist who described a slashed tusk found in the eastern states. This conflicts with ideas that early Americans migrated south down the western side of the continent. Where did all the giants go?New Scientist 2.4 .94, p. 13 The mammals of the ice-age, which became extinct by 10,000 years ago, are ...
