If paleontologists find a steep slope, folded sedimentary rocks, full of fossils, what they can say about their interaction?
Rocks, forming in some places, differ substantially from the others. Their specific characteristics are called sedimentary facies. It happens today, just like millions of years ago. Rocks at different sites can have very different composition, even if their accumulation occurred in the same period of time. The same applies to those included in them the petrified spines.
Fossils in some places is often very different from that of fossils in other places due to the environmental conditions in which the sediments. Just like ocean fish, shellfish, and mammals that live at different depths, the fossils found in various sedimentary deposits of ancient seas, characteristic of the marine environment. The stratigraphic arrangement of the sedimentary rock often shows the species and a sediment gradient. Because ultimately everything falls to the bottom and covered by sediment, even species that lived at a great distance from each other (in depth), can be close to each other in the layer of sedimentary rocks.

Such discoveries are unexplained findings. The finds of archaeology is a new discovery in the world of archaeology, which shocked the entire world! Excavated artifacts, attracted a large number of people. Many of their artifacts give scientists from 9 to 13 thousand years. Unexplained discovery or a well-planned hoax? In either case, it’s amazing the finds of archaeology that can challenge a scientific theory about evolution and religious beliefs.
German businessman in 1944, found a figure that was made of clay, near the coast of Cerro del Toro in acámbaro Goingto settlement, it is Mexico. His name was Waldemar Julsrud, he miraculously managed to find them. In those days, when the shapes were considered ancient, their descriptions had a lot of controversy and as a result, they began to attract the attention of skeptical scientists. Figurines of Acámbaro was not only ancient dinosaurs, and animals that were unknown until then.
Scientists decided to conduct an analysis of the age of these surprising findings in 1972, with the help of radiocarbon method, at this time the artifacts were in the state of Pennsylvania, in Philadelphia. Studies have shown that findings were 5,000 – 6,000 years. Before that, four years ago in new Jersey, tests of termoemkosti determined that artifacts from about 6,000 to 2,000 years. Continue reading
National Park Petrified Forest is located along interstate 40 between the towns of Holbrook and Navajo. It is the world’s largest Deposit of colored petrified wood. In addition, the largest cut colored petrified wood fragments derived from the trunks found in this place. Most found here are samples of petrified wood belongs to the family Araucariaceae and in particular referring to Araucarioxylon arizonicum. Plants of this family have completely disappeared in the Northern hemisphere, but remains in the isolated populations in the southern hemisphere.
The Park consists of 2 areas. Northern territory, covering part of the sediments of the Chinle formation upper Triassic (220 million years) is called the Painted Desert. In the southern part there are several locations of petrified wood.
The Petrified Forest area was declared a national monument December 8, 1906, and in 1962 was opened the national Park. Currently the national Park is 885 km 2. Along with numerous localities of petrified wood, the Park’s attractions include Agate Agate house and bridge, built of petrified wood. Continue reading
