Kerr Watch

Elapsed time since Richard Kerr failed to inform his Science readers of the confirmation of nanodiamonds at the YDB: 6 years, 3 months, and 1 day

Carolina bays....in the Midwest?

Here’s an excellent mash-up of bay LiDAR images Rick Firestone used in a recent article he wrote for the Journal of Cosmology,  The Case for the Younger Dryas
Extraterrestrial Impact Event:  Mammoth, Megafauna and the Clovis Extinction, 12,000 Years Ago
.

Why is it excellent?   Because perhaps it will inspire people to take this phenomena a little more seriously.  For instance, those who oppose an extra-terrestrial formation hypothesis for Carolina Bay formation rarely recognize their ubiquity on the landscape.  In fact, it is repeatedly claimed by otherwise competent earth scientists that bays exist only on the NA Coastal Plain.  Not only are they found in the Piedmont — they are are found nearly a thousand miles inland.

I plan to put up dozens more examples like this of the “Carolina” Bays   ET or not — there is a lot more to these features than is generally acknowledged.

    I am speaking at a conference on asteroid impacts during the Dryas and would like to use your illustration as a slide. I am not being paid for this talk.
