Davias’ Astonishing Presentation to Asheville GSA on Carolina Bay origin

Michael Davias’ presentation this week to the GSA’s Southeastern Section in Asheville is simply extraordinary. Even better than last month at Hartford. I bet the sclerotic old geo-goats — and better, the know-it-all-because-somebody-told-me kids — were put on their heels

The fact is that no one knows how the hell these features came to be […]

The Square Bays of Bolivia

Some loyal Tuskamers are chatting in a comment thread regarding “paleo-lagoons” of South America and the American Southwest. I am not entirely convinced of an ET origin for such features (or even Carolina bays for that matter). Still, the chat had not specifically mentioned the odd bays of Bolivia, so I thought I […]

Perigee Zero: Carolina Bays in the Midwest

I had the good fortune to meet Michael Davias, the author of the Perigee Zero website, at the AGU Fall meeting last December. Mike has taken the Bay phenomena on-line better than anyone — including me. He has also been fearless in his (well considered) speculation. I have long intended to get Perigee Zero properly […]

Google Earth video of Carolina Bays

A couple of months ago I was having some fun with Google Earth Pro and put together this little video demonstrating the ubiquity of Carolina Bays in Eastern North Carolina. This is one of those projects where you swear you will return and do a “second draft” in the near future — and never do. […]
