In most situations, backhoe trenching is the most effective way to identify sites. When backhoe trenching is not possible, in urban areas for example, or when the potential depth for a site exceeds the range of mechanical excavation, we conduct hydraulic continuous-core sampling to identify sites. Coring in San Francisco. When archaeologists dig through the layers of earth carefully, the different soils and buried surfaces can be visually seen. Cores do the same thing, like inserting a straw into a layer cake, sometimes reaching 65 feet below surface. Each four-foot section of the core is pulled up in two-inch-diameter plastic liners, brought to the lab, sliced down the center, and splayed open to reveal the stratigraphic layers. OSL samples from cores. Dating the layers can be done in a couple of ways.

Platform Mound. A platform mound is any earthwork or mound intended to support a structure or activity. The indigenous peoples of North America built substructure mounds for well over a thousand years starting in the Archaic period and continuing through the Woodland period.

My investigations yielded major discoveries about the past extent and frequency of volcanic flowage deposits from Mount Rainier volcano, allowed correlation of the most recent eruptions of Mount Hood with the observations of Lewis and Clark, and allowed dating of several prehistoric events at Mount Rainier. My studies of buried and submerged forests using radiocarbon and dendrochronology have helped reconstruct and evaluate paleoseismic history and have been cited in numerous published reports.

This work includes an inventory and analysis of landslides and landslide-dammed lakes, many of which likely record large ancient earthquakes. My work has allowed dating of more than 25 probable seismogenic landslide deposits in Washington State and dating of the Bonneville landslide in the Columbia River Gorge. C Evaluated and mapped Quaternary geologic deposits. D Evaluated subsurface information and surficial deposits for liquefaction susceptibility maps—includes mapping of landslides, and liquefaction features.

E Communicated proactively with the public, government officials, and media about geologic hazards issues and topics and conducting many public meetings. This work has included organizing-, and speaking at public meetings, training emergency preparedness officials regarding volcanic history and hazards, coauthoring pioneering response plans, and briefing government officials including the Governor, County and State executives and government leaders, and many representatives of schools as well as the general public and media.

F Landslide hazard zonation project — Inventoried historic and prehistoric landslides in watershed units using aerial photographs, maps and GIS imagery, statistical analysis, and field inspections.

You can visit his blog at RooshV. In an interesting article written nearly ten years ago , a writer by the name of Orson Scott Card has forecasted a lot of what has happened with the rise of homosexual culture in America. Civilization requires the suppression of natural impulses that would break down the social order. Why would men submit to rules that deprive them of the chance to satisfy their natural desire to mate with every attractive female?

Beagle,’ as naturalist, I was much struck with certain facts in the distribution of the inhabitants of South America, and in the geological relations of the present to the past inhabitants of that continent. In considering the Origin of Species, it is quite conceivable that a naturalist, reflecting on the mutual affinities of organic beings, on their embryological relations, their geographical distribution, geological succession, and other such facts, might come to the conclusion that each species had not been independently created, but had descended, like varieties, from other species.

View in context Nor could you wonder had you witnessed a recent experience of mine when, in the armor of blissful and stupendous ignorance, I gaily narrated the gist of it to a Fellow of the Royal Geological Society on the occasion of my last trip to London. But I believe the story, and so would you, and so would the learned Fellow of the Royal Geological Society, had you and he heard it from the lips of the man who told it to me.
