Edge
I am the one who has read Blatt et al.
I am still intereseted in the quote if you can find it but yor summary of it does in no way detract from the novelty of Bertahult and Julien's work! You are incredibly biased Edge. Their work shows step by step the mechanisms of sorting by which layers of differnet compositons can be simultaneously and rapidly laid down under varied regimes of particle size and currents.
You are like the party poopers at the departmental coffee table where you tell them about a new paper and they say
'Oh but that's been known for years'.
And then I say: 'Funny how it got into PNAS this week then isn't it?'
They say 'Oh?'.
And I say, 'Maybe their work significantly added to the field'?
Then they don't say anything.
It's nothing short of jealosy.

^ I'm sorry I'm not as cynical about mainstream publication as you. There are too many papers and journals but PNAS is not one I would be removing.

Hey, TC, do you realize that you use 'excepted' when you mean 'accepted'? That's what Edge is talking about and I have to agree that you seem to be competing with Brad in lack of clarity on occasions.

One does get cyclically repeating laminae in Julien's experiments.
