January 15, 2017 Weekly Geology Guess, Floods

January 15, 2017

Greetings from the Bluff Park Back Porch, way up yonder on Shades Mountain (1,109′) in Alabama:

 

We will continue with Vern’s request of the Missoula Floods.

 
 

Flood Myths and other controversial stuff.    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flood_myth

>    Now Randall, you’ve gone to meddling???!!!

>    As with most of my weekly fores into geology, with each topic I could write many papers and dissertations.

>    As usual, I scramble to just stay ahead of my audience.

Note:  I have intentionally reduced the amount of linked graphics in this email due to the amount of space required and trying to untangle everything the following week has been a mess.

Editors Note:  It is the intent of this site to keep this discussion as simple as possible, so as to educate the interested general public and not to discuss with the geology crowd the latest geologic theories and nuances.  Thanks, R
