    Fossilized raindrops?

    This dolomite stone was discovered near Chasm Creek, central Arizona. It appears to have the fossilized impressions of raindrops splashing into a fine muddy surface. The stone seems to be dolomitic, as HCl causes a low fizz, unlike typical limestone's more energetic fizzing. Most of the "splashes" have the central "rebound" splash seen in my high-speed imagery of water droplets. That central rebound appears to have been broken off over time. Does my assumption that this is a somehow frozen-in-time rain shower make sense?

    Fossil hunting after rainfall

    Yesterday we had heavy rainfall in Charleston. Rainfall is of course one of the natural elements that erodes the material surrounding fossils. We know that some fossils become exposed to the earths surface due to rain. In Charleston, good areas to search after a hard rain are shores, river edges, creeks, gravel beds, and excavation sites. Dredge piles are also good search areas. There is a particular area on Folly Beach which has a significant amount of dredge material. It would be a good area to search today or tomorrow at low tide. I suggest you search here between 10am and 2pm (low tide). T

    Lavernock finds

    Hello Was out fossil hunting at Lavernock this past week. It rained a lot so couldn't stay for very long. I never really take my phone on fossil hunts but will try to get some pictures of the surrounding area next time. Here are some of my favourite finds! 1. Jumble of ichthyosaur bones. 2. Ichthyosaur rib 3. Not really sure, probably ichthyosaur rib 4. Gastropod my sister found I tried prepping the ichthyosaur rib but it didn't go too well. At least its still intact.

    Holiday Hunt

    Headed back to the Peace River yesterday after a 17 day absence. Water level and flow were a bit higher than I would have liked due to recent rainfall. I just couldn't stay away any longer! When I started the journey to the river the weather was cool and partly cloudy. Half way there I ran into light rain and fog and began to worry I had made a bad choice to make the trip (rain prediction was 50%). When I got to the river I had to prep the kayak under cover as the rain was coming down heavily. It tapered off as I donned my wetsuit and I set out under cloudy skies. Had almost made it to
  5. I have a mathematics question that is tangentially related to fossil collecting. How do you figure out the total chance of rain during a collecting trip using the weather service rain predictions (should I bring my umbrella)? Can you give a general formula? Let us say that you are going on a three day trip with the following precipitation chances of measurable rain (chance of rain for any geographical point in forecast area) for each day: Friday 10%; Saturday 20% and Sunday 30%. What is the combined probability, Friday through Sunday, that it will rain at least once? Is rain likely? Assume tha

    I need some lower rivers

    I'm itching to get out and get my feet wet. This rainy season seems like it is lasting forever, and showing no signs of slowing. Where the heck do people hunt on dry land in Florida? I'm wondering if I should check out the spoil islands off the coast of Tampa. Any ideas for some fossil hunting? Verts, Inverts-I'm not picky. -J
  7. The title says it all. This unseasonably-wet winter is killing fossil-season in south Florida. Every river is high and fast. And when the rivers finally drop down close to huntable levels, we get more rain that makes them jump right back up. At this rate, the season is wasting away...

    Rain, Rain, Rain

    Well all the fossil collecting Texans down by the coast should be enjoying all our fossils from Central Texas pretty soon. Pretty sure the landscape will look completely different next time I get out.

    Unknown imprint

    You guys sick of my threads yet? Sorry, there’s a lot more to come. Here is an interesting surface which features may be purely natural erosion or a fossil imprint. Coral maybe? Almost looks like fossil rain drops, eh? Any clue if it’s organic in origin? From northern Illinois.

    Whether the weather...

    It's been about a month now since I went on my last hunt, due to snow and cold weather. There's also nothing to do in the workshop since I finished up my last commision work a couple of weeks ago. All that was left was to do some dusting, so I was starting to get a bit depressed. The weather was warming up a bit, so I got in touch with a friend yesterday who lives close to the Wutach and he told me that the snow was pretty well gone for the time being. I grabbed the bull by the horns this morning, threw an extra spade into the car and took off to my favorite locality. On the way there it start

    Season ending on the Peace

    Well, it looks like the rainy season is finally coming. Went to Brownville today, hiked down river from the boatramp to where those houses overlook the river, found a bison tooth, various shark teeth and a few good mammoth frags. I was working on a hole in knee deep water, saw about a 30 pound turtle, then i'm digging look down next to my leg and see a huge fish, I came up outta that hole! So I go back up near the houses and start a new hole in shallower water. So I'm digging away, I look up and see a HUGE dog about 8 ft away just looking at me, not growling not barking so far so goo
  12. I checked the National Weather Service website to check water levels for the Sulphur River near Cooper 19/24 bridge thanks to the link that sward was kind enough to pass along to me ( http://water.weather.gov/ahps2/river.php?wfo=fwd&wfoid=18693&riverid=203577&pt%5B%5D=143755&allpoints=143755&data%5B%5D=all ) and it looks like the water level rose to just over 7 feet after the storms and has come back down to just under 2 feet as of this morning. I've been told that the river changes dramatically after each heavy rain so I wanted to know if anyone had a chance to check it

    Houston, We Have A Problem

    It has been a great season on the Peace River. I was out yesterday just below the Powerline at Brownsville and planned on searching above Wauchula tomorrow. So much for plans -- We were caught in 2 thunderstorms and the river went up 4 feet at Payne Creek and 6 feet at Zolfo Springs starting in late afternoon. SInce I do not scuba dive, it looks like the season is closing and I, with many others, am about to go into withdrawal until November. YIKES!!!!!! Added a couple of Photos from better times.
