I have been doing some reading and the term "pyroclastic flow" was first coined in 1902 to describe the eruption of Mount Pelée on Martinique. I would think a guy deep in the geology side would know that.<quoted text>
Typically <500 ft. The overburden is sedimentary and uniform, all coal overburden is. Once in while crude oil is hit. This closed a portion of KY's largest U/G mine 3 years ago. I was there just after it happened. Why is there so much natural gas under such pressure? It would breakdown and depressurize in short order. The picture underground is an active volatile environment full of dangerous hydrocarbons, not old age. Well logs nor deep mine exposures never show multiple environments that long-age demands. It show's as placid first earth, one major catastrophe of unimaginable scale, the buried remains of an early and much different earth then subsequent local events. I've worked in many of the worlds deep supermines, same picture. I am pretty sure that "pyroclastic" flows were coined because of the events @ St.Helens, forcing rethinking of feature forming theory, challenging the "one grain of sand at a time" valley concept.
What does that mean that you did the geology side in college? Does that mean you have a geology degree? Graduated? Took one geology class?
What does the presence of oil or natural gas have to do with the rapid burial that explains the existence of polystrate fossils? You know that geology has known the origin of these fossils for 150 years and it fits with scientific theory and doesn't need a mythical flood to provide the answer.
Isn't most natural gas underground? If it breaks down or depressurizes then we wouldn't have any to cook our food. Now I know that places like Lake Erie have some natural gas dissolved in the water and you can actually set it alight, but that isn't most of it. Since you brought it up, I thought I would comment.
I can't wait to see your next post in that evasive, sort of saying something without saying anything style you have developed.
