Arggh. Tom, can you help me out on this? I will not be able to
relocate the reference before Sunday (and not even then if UCLA
doesn't have the right newsletter - I will not be able to get to
CSULB until the following weekend).
It was in a "newsletter" of one of the geological societies. I
do not remember the name of the journal or the exact issue (it
was published in early 1994 or late 1993, I think).
The problem is than little has been done with it since, and I
have not found any rebuttals anywhere. This despite the fact that
most of the people on this list that have discussed it have been
somewhat skeptical of the claim.
[Note, I am skeptical of it myself - but until it is either replicated
or refuted in print it constitutes a big question mark on the status
of the Chixculub(?sp) crater].
The peace of God be with you.
