3D Space Navigator and Carolina Bay LiDAR Data from Cintos Research: A Match Made In Heaven

 

Eye Candy

Earlier this week I purchased a wonderful device, the 3D Space Navigator Mouse from 3D Connexion. I am giving this cool tool Two Tusks Up and encourage any reader who works with 3D or Google Earth to purchase one post-haste. This sturdy little brick of a […]

Charlotte: Carolina Bays at GSA in November

 

Isn’t it astonishing that all these secrets have been preserved for so many years just so we could discover them!! — Wilbur Wright, June, 1903 No one has yet invented an explanation which will fully account for all the facts observed – Douglas Johnson, regarding Carolina bays, 1942

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 […]

Astonishing Image of Carolina Bays

The image below is from the Bennettsville, South Carolina region. More Carolina bays here.

Davias Presents to Geological Society of America on Carolina Bays

I am trying to get the Powerpoint from Michael Davias, which I will post. I am sure it is very, very cool. His website is here: http://cintos.org/

Carolina Bays and Peat Fires

iPaper_embed(‘79972389’, ‘key-y6alm3f9ndc57vgfupt’, ‘600’, ‘450’); But some bays have no peat!

“Analysis reveals that, unlike typical, peat-rich Carolina Bays, Howard Bay essentially lacks peat, diatoms, pollen, and other organic materials, and it also lacks substantial silt and clay. That suggests this Bay never held water for a sustained length of time. Furthermore, the presence of […]

Carolina Bays at Perigee Zero

New Carolina Bay visualization tool from Perigee Zero

Wow. Michael Davias at Perigee Zero keeps stripping the hide off the ball for Carolina Bays. He has investigated, identified and, most importantly — visualized and shared — some extraordinary info on the range and character of bays in the Southeast and Midwest.

The screenshot below only scratches the surface of […]

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. […]
