Drumlins Are Glacial, Not Impact, In Origin

 Drumlins Are Glacial, Not Impact, In Origin


Dear friends,

New research concerning how drumlins form has appeared 
in the October 2010 (vol. 38 no. 10) issue of "Geology." 
http://geology.gsapubs.org/content/38/10.toc
 


The significance of this research is discussed in:

1. How Drumlins Form, olelog What on Earth 
Blog, Nov. 18, 2010, http://my.opera.com/nielsol/blog/show.dml/22004962

The paper is;

Johnson, M. D., A. Schomacker, I. O. Benediktsson,
A. J. Geiger, A. Ferguson, and O. Ingolfsson, 2010, 
Active drumlin field revealed at the margin of 
Múlajökull, Iceland: A surge-type glacier. Geology.
vol. 38, no. 10, pp. 943-946, DOI: 10.1130/G31371.1
http://geology.gsapubs.org/content/38/10/943
 


This refutes the claims by various catastrophists that drumlins 
were either created by Pleistocene extraterrestrial impacts or 
Noah's Flood.

An example of how drumlins are misinterpreted and misused 
as evidence of an extraterrestrial impact is discussed in "Could 
a Comet Tail Have Scarred the Earth in the Recent Past?" at 
http://www.sott.net/articles/show/206447-Could-a-Comet-Tail-Have-Scarred-the-Earth-in-the-Recent-Past-
 


Even more detailed discussion of how drumlins were created 
is discussed in a number of papers in the December (vol. 232, 
no. 3-4) issue of "Sedimentary Geology" at 
http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/00370738
 


Best Wishes,

Paul H.
