[Update] Swiss Kiss: Nanodiamonds and Iridium independently confirmed at Bern INQUA session on Younger Dryas climate crash

The titles for the talks and posters at the upcoming INQUA session, The Enigmatic Younger Dryas, have been posted for some time. Typical of scientific conferences, the narrative abstract revealing the findings (or musings) of the presenter is posted later, a few weeks before the conference. The abstracts for the conference have now been [...]

NatGeo gets it wrong on Carbon Spherules and Nanodiamonds

Don’t get me wrong from the headline.  I love National Geographic.  I have received an issue every month of my entire life.  But the reporter here, John Roach, made a critical mistake in his otherwise largely accurate report regarding Scott and Pinter’s work.

Younger Dryas Boundary: Extraterrestrial or Not? AGU Fall Meeting 2009

I was fortunate to attend the YDB session in San Francisco at the Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union.  With a young family and a growing business it is tough — and selfish —  to pull away to the West Coast to play scientist two weeks before Christmas.  But I did.  And I appreciate the [...]
