In response to my two recent posts, reader JS sent two Google-Earth images that provide further evidence the Appalachians were eroded by the receding waters of Noah’s Flood. My first post presented a reinterpretation of a paper published in GSA Today (a publication of the Geological Society of America) which examined the Cullasaja basin in [...]
Sean Gallen, lead author of the GSA Today paper about the uplift of the Appalachians, which I connected with Noah’s Flood has responded with the following comment. My response is interspersed.
I am the first author on the article “Miocene rejuvenation of topographic relief in the southern Appalachians”. While my coauthors and I appreciate Tas’ interest [...]
An interesting article, published in GSA Today (a publication by the Geological Society of America) in February 2013, describes features of the landscape of the Appalachian Mountains. These are a system of mountain ranges in eastern North America, extending from around Atlanta, Georgia, north past New York, and into Canada (see figure left). The paper [...]
Reader JS sent some Google-Earth images of the Cape Town area, prompted by reading an article on Yahoo! News entitled African Mountain Range Could be World’s Strongest.
The researchers calculated erosion rates for the mountains based on measuring radioactive isotopes of beryllium. They calculated an unbelievably slow rate of erosion for the Table Mountain area, [...]
As you travel the unsealed road to Carnarvon Gorge, just before you reach the Camping Area, you pass through a break in Clematis Ridge. The photo from the top of the ridge shows it running south from where the people are sitting. Clematis Ridge extends across the whole entrance to the Gorge for a distance [...]
Here’s another image from JS, this one showing the effects of Noah’s Flood cutting water gaps in the Susquenhanna River Basin, Pennsylvania, USA, very late in the Retreating stage.
“Since you mentioned Ken Karle’s article [free pdf], I thought I’d send this SLR picture at 180m asl (red), 240m asl (orange) and 320m asl (yellow) of [...]
JS has sent another image illustrating the effects of receding floodwaters in the western USA.
“In response to Berend de Boer’s comment, attached is another example of what can be done with Sea Level Rise. This is an image of the western US at 1650m asl (red), 1850m asl (orange) and 2100m asl (yellow).
“As you [...]
Thanks to reader JS who sent two images of the windgap near Perth, Western Australia: a closeup of Walyunga NP, and a larger scale image of the Perth coast. They were obtained from Google Earth. JS said:
“The first is a Google Earth screenshot, in which the purple represents a filled-in contour of 80m asl [...]
I’m organizing a geological field trip for the Perth region, Western australia, on 17 March 2012 (find details here). This means lots of research but fortunately there is much excellent geological material available from geological organizations and on the web.
This material, including maps, reports, papers and field guides, is a fantastic resource because the exploration [...]
