Present theories explaining the lack of craters do not seem credible One possibility is that we are missing the circular features (such as the area around Glastonbury) Another is that the meteorites don’t leave craters, but pass through the crust like a bullet through glass.

Why Volcanoes swell before an eruption

Current models explaining the swelling of a volcano before eruption point to explanations involving an expansion of the magma chamber and an increase in magma volume Simple calculations presented here show that thermal expansion alone is quite sufficient to explain the swelling There seems to be a reluctance amongst geologists to consider thermal expansion as […]

The way the SNP have been allowed to go on at length about Brexit and referendum in Scotland seems to me to be some form of collusion not just by politicians but by the press. Is much […]

Academics are likely to strongly resist any move and/or attempt to enforce conformity to […]
