2007 Abstract

 

2012 AGU, San Francisco:

Formation of vitrous char that occur in ancient charcoal assemblages have remained unsolved. Laboratory experiments refuted vitrification to resulting from high temperature charring of green or resinous wood. This puzzling problem has been refreshed by showing the association to […]

Finally Available in PNAS: Very High Temperature Impact Melt Products: Evidence for Cosmic Impacts \ Airbursts 12,900 years ago

These scientists have identified three contemporaneous levels more than 12,000 years ago, on two continents yielding siliceous scoria-like objects (SLO’s),” said H. Richard Lane, program director of National Science Foundation’s Division of Earth Sciences, which funded the research. “SLO’s are indicative of high-energy cosmic airbursts/impacts, bolstering the contention that these events induced […]

Well, well. A cat just leapt from the bag.

I don’t have an “as published” copy yet (despite being a co-author). But I will post one just as soon as I do.
