Famed British Geologist Was Spectacularly Wrong About Stonehenge

In 1923, notable British scientist Herbert Henry Thomas revealed a seminal study on Stonehenge, claiming to own found the precise spots wherever prehistoric individuals had quarried the stones.

There was only 1 downside along with his analysis: it had been wrong. And it’s taken geologists concerning eighty years to induce it right, a brand new study finds.

“At best, he [Thomas] was forgetful and sloppy, however at the worst he was being deceptive,” aforementioned study co-researcher Rob Ixer, a scientist at the University of Leicester Associate in Nursingd an unearned senior analysis associate at the Institute of archeology at University faculty London, in England.

Geological efficiency assessment of detailed aerospace geological research: a case study of the Northern edge of the Dnieper-Donets Depression

The analysis of geologic potency for the elaborate studies mistreatment remote sensing knowledge is performed among the Northern fringe of the Dnieper-Donets Depression, wherever these studies were ending for eleven years. The results purpose at the essential confirmation issue of the expected native structures unconcealed by suggests that of elaborate knowledge collected through part geologic studies. especially, elaborate seismal exploration methodology of common depth purpose substantiates forty objects from fifty five ones, that ar equated to the native positive structures for the higher crystalline basement and lower substance stratum (a confirmation issue is zero.73).

Sand Massifs as Objects of Ecological–Geological Research

In the ecological and geologic respect the sand soil stratum is taken into account as a element of ecological–geological systems or biogeocenoses. The characteristic ecological–geological options of sand massifs area unit studied. varieties of sand ecological–geological systems area unit distinguished and their structure is represented. [3]

Research on geological features of Huaniushan Gold Deposit in Beishan of Gansu province

The Beishan orogenic belt is found within the south rim of central Asia orogenic belt, the intersection of east Tianshan and Tarim plates. Thus, the earth science structure is very advanced. The gold deposits square measure cosmopolitan in varied varieties and also the met allogenic mechanism is advanced. Overall, the gold deposits in Beishan orogenic belt square measure largely developed in Palaeozoic continental plate collision and butting belt, that encompasses a bound spacial and temporal law of nature.

Geology and Mineral Resources of Oyo State, South Western Nigeria

Oyo State lies within the south-western a part of Nigeria. Underlain by 3 lithological units of the crystalline basement advanced, comprising: (i) Migmatite-Gneiss advanced (quartzite, gneissic rocks); (ii) Low to medium grade metasediments (Green schists facies, particularly quartz metamorphic rock and isinglass schist). (iii) The Pan African Granitoids (older granites) that square measure syn to late tectonic intrusions. With these composite of rocks, Oyo State has varied minerals starting from auriferous, non-metallic, to industrial minerals to numerous grades of gemstones. previous discoveries build the northern portion of Oyo State to be preponderantly underlain by advanced igneous rock, that harbour tons of gemstones starting from Aquamarine, Tourmaline, calcedony and industrial minerals like mineral, Marble, Talc and Granites of varied forms [5]
