221. Problems for Rohl's New Chronology [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... JACF 1, pp. 64-65). The earlier periods may also need shortening, although this was not the approach taken by W. Mitchell (JACF 3, p. 24). Kassite rule itself seems much too long for the amount of remains (conventionally about 400 years) and could probably lose a couple of centuries. The preceding period forms a well attested block including Hammurabi's First Dynasty at Babylon with corresponding rulers in Isin, Larsa, Uruk, Ashur, etc. Remains of this period also appear to be attested stratigraphically (e.g. Oates pp. 76ff, section titled 'Old Babylonian Cities'). At Babylon itself the Hammurabi level would be below the present water-table (Oates p. 76) and therefore inaccessible to archaeologists. The Sumerian language continued in use, alongside Babylonian, through Hammurabi's dynasty and was still used by the Kassites (Oates, p. 101), so perhaps some 'Sumerian' strata have been mis-identified and are actually later. The New Chronology has only begun to scratch the surface of Mesopotamian archaeology, and we need ...

222. Cyclothems As Solar-system Pulse Recorders [Science Frontiers Website]
... ONLINE No. 55: Jan-Feb 1988 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Cyclothems as solar-system pulse recorders Geologists can help astronomers look back in time. The sunspot cycle can be seen in variations of varves; i.e., annual layers of sediment; and the growth rings of shells have been used to estimate the number of days in the lunar month when the solar system was younger. Cyclothems may also be useful. Cyclothems are groups or bundles of strata that repeat themselves in stratigraphic columns. A generalized cyclothem from Illinois is shown in the illustration. In the U.S. western interior, rhythmic sedimentation appears in the Fort Hays Limestone Member of the Niobrara Formation. These cyclothems can be correlated over distances exceeding 800 kilometers and are believed to be the consequence of climatic changes associated with the earth's precession and orbital eccentriciy. These rhythms have been captured in bundles of shale-limestone couplets. A bundle of five coup lets, for example, is thought to express 21,000- and 100,000-year Milankovitchtype climatic cycles ...

We need quote here only the last two sentences of this paper's abstract: "We report here two carbon-14 dates from charcoal taken from cultural features associated with the older materials of about 33,000 yr BP. These findings provide additional evidence that people colonized the Americas much earlier than previously thought."

224. Collision/eruption/extinction/ magnetic reversal [Science Frontiers Website]
... the solar system bobs up and down through the thickly populated disk of our galaxy; (2) The resulting encounters lead to showers of comets and/or asteroids on earth; (3) The mechanic trauma leads to basalt flooding; (4) Great biological extinctions occur in consequence; and (5) The terrestrial magnetic field reverses in step. Now, if scientists could show that all of these phenomena occur at the same frequency and are roughly in phase, it would constitute one of science's most important syntheses. The stratigraphic record and the estimated ages of meteor craters certainly hint at such synchrony. Recently, two more papers have appeared which support the above scenario. First, M.R. Rampino and R.B. Stothers show that during the past 250 million years, eleven episodes of basalt flooding have occurred with an average cycle time of 32 million years. Second, J. Negi maintains that the earth's magnetic record boasts a similar string of disturbances, with an average period of 33 million years. (Anonymous; "Regular Reversals in Earth's Magnetic Field ...

225. Chaos Below [Science Frontiers Website]
... At the surface, the material cools and sinks along the subduction zones. Below the surface, it reheats and rises to join the crust again, along one of the Earth's midocean ridges." (Anderson, Ian; "Seismic Waves Reveal Earth's Other Crust,: New Scientist, p. 28, November 26, 1988.) Comment. An obvious question is: What does this repeated circulation of crustal material do to radiometric and indexfossil dating of the crustal material we can access at the surface? Large sections of the stratigraphic record are missing on our planet; maybe they have now been found. From Science Frontiers #61, JAN-FEB 1989.© 1989-2000 William R.

226. More Confusion At The K-T Boundary [Science Frontiers Website]
... truly susceptible to extinction by either asteroid impact, widespread volcanism, or some combination of both, one would expect to find their numbers and diversity drastically curtailed during Mesozoic impact events. Instead, the dinosaurs not only survived these impacts but prospered. Their demise, which began before the K-T event, was probably not due to either impact or vol canism. (Paul, Gregory S.; "Giant Meteor Impacts and Great Eruptions: Dinosaur Killers?" BioScience, 39:162, 1989.) Reference.

Second, the amino acids may be abundant tens of centimeters above and below the K-T boundary clay containing the iridium, but they are virtually absent in the clay itself! (Cronin, John R.; "Amino Acids and Bolide Impacts," Nature, 339:423, 1989, Also: Monastersky, R.; "Rare Amino Acids Support Impact Theory," Science News, 135:356, 1989.) Reference.

228. Microorganisms Complicate The K-t Boundary [Science Frontiers Website]
... by B.D. Dyer et al have demonstrated that bacteria in ground water can both concentrate and disperse iridium deposits. In other words, bacteria could smear out an iridium spike, perhaps partially erase it, or even move it to a deeper or shallower layer of sediment. (Monastersky, R.; "Microbes Complicate the K-T Mystery," Science News, 136: 341, 1989.) Comment. An obvious question now is how bacteria might have affected other chemicals, such as oxygen and carbon isotopes, widely used in stratigraphy.

229. Pennsylvanian Time-scale Problems [Science Frontiers Website]
... confidently label charts with firm dates for the appearance of fishes, the demise of the dinosaurs, and so on. Alas, things are not quite as certain as they appear. Radiometric dating is not all that precise; errors may be large indeed. Take the Pennsylvanian period for example. It is part of the Carboniferous period, when many of the great coal deposits were laid down. The classical duration of the Pennsylvanian-- used in many texts-- is 34 million years. A meticulous new study of central European stratigraphy now pegs the Pennsylvanian as spanning only 19 million years. Now that's a 44% change! This new figure for the duration of the Pennsylvanian has already cast doubt on the origin of the famous Pennsylvanian cyclothems (repetitive strata) in North America. It had been thought that these seemingly cyclic deposits were correlated with sea level changes forced by variations in the earth's orbit (the Milankovitch periods). With this substantial compression of Pennsylvan-ian time, this correlation falls apart. The cyclothems, which are of impressive area and thickness, ...

230. Giant impact-wave deposit along u.s. east coast [Science Frontiers Website]
... is is over 60 meters thick in places and covers more than 15,000 square kilometers. In the bed are found boulders (up to 2 meters in diameter), cobbles, pebbles, and traces of tektite glass and shocked quartz. The youngest microfossils date from the Eocene, and argon dating of the ejecta yield a date of 35.5 million years, which correlates with the North American tektite strewn field. C.W. Poag et al interpret this boulder bed as follows: "On the basis of its unusual characteristics and its stratigraphic equivalence to a layer of impact ejecta at Deep Sea Drilling Project (DSDP) Site 612 (New Jersey continental slope), we postulate that this boulder bed was formed by a powerful bolidegenerated wave train that scoured the ancient inner shelf and coastal plain of southeastern Virginia. The most promising candidate for the bolide impact site (identified on seismic reflection profiles) is 40 km north-northwest of DSDP Site 612 on the New Jersey outer continental shelf." (Poag, C. Wylie, et al; "Deep Sea Drilling Project ...
