Re: Earthquakes revealing bones?
I can walk you right to an obvious fault with a few feet of offset
running directly through a pretty large rib bone (4 to 5 inches
across). I've left it alone as a curiosity and a good example
sedimentologically that I point out to guests as I am explaining what
microsites are. The structure was a bonus. Pretty hard to take a
photo of because the hard ledge directly above protecting the bone is
several feet into the shadows. I would correctly answer your
questions yes only if that bone wouldn't have been exposed without the
earthquake that caused the offset to occur. Therefore I found the
bone directly as a result of the quake. The microsite the large bone
is in has potential only if I want to bring in really heavy equipment
to remove the hard sand cap rock that is about a foot thick but is
nicely offset by the fault.
