Re: Need to focus on getting my research done.
We have had this discussion before, and as I have told you, the thin dusting of marine diatoms left by a brief marine flood would be too sparse to turn up in convectional examinations of sediment cores. I have to take a fair sized sample and process the whole thing and manage to strain out only a few marine diatoms. How on earth do you expect such a brief event to show up prominently in outcroppings?
If you were able to find them, then you should be able to outline your methodology and write down a process by which the extraction can be performed. Then your method could be applied to the existing cores we have "on file", and the thesis could be thereby be tested.
But as I recall the last tinme I saw you make the diatom argument, the only evidence for the existance of diatoms you had was a photograph, which you had not yourself taken, of a boulder in Colorada, and which you had not yet visited to verify with your own eyes. Have things improved since then, wmscott?
