Some potential repetitive parts in the corner of Figure 15 of that recent @SciReports paper about an asteroid that destroyed Tall el-Hammam (biblical city of Sodom?).https://t.co/wtZbnXOTrH pic.twitter.com/qGHRwDzKjr

The Comet Research Group’s response to Elisabeth Bik’s tweet concerning images in: “A Tunguska sized airburst destroyed Tall el‑Hammam a Middle Bronze Age city in the Jordan Valley near the Dead Sea“:
You are correct. Our graphic artist made minor, cosmetic corrections to five of 53 images. All of them were distant from any important scientific data and no changes were made to key data, such as bones or potsherds. Four of the original unaltered images are included here. The areas that were changed on each image are discussed below. The other figures were altered for similar reasons. We have already submitted corrected images to Scientific Reports.
Kind regards, Comet Research Group
