NEGLECTED GEOLOGICAL ANOMALIES is one of 22 volumes in the Catalog of Anomalies published by The Sourcebook Project. The catalog provides an objective, unsensationalized compilation of anomalous phenomena, difficult to explain observations, and curiosities of nature in the fields of astronomy, biology, archeology, geophysics, and geology. The focus of this volume is neglected but not insignificant geological anomalies. For example, do we really know how concretions and geodes form, and whence the immense deposits of superficial debris found all over the globe? Some of the topics covered include Tektites and microtektites * Erratic Boulders and Gravels * Polystrate Fossils * Bone Caves and Bone Beds * Giant Basalt Flows * Natural Glasses * Surging Glaciers * Driftless Regions * Stretched Pebbles * Inclusions in Crystals * Rarity of Fossil Meteorites and Tektites * Elevated Erratics * Stone Rivers * and Rock Glaciers. NEGLECTED GEOLOGICAL ANOMALIES contains 80 illustrations and intriguing accounts collected from references including the American Journal of Science, Earth and Planetary Science Letters, Geological Magazine, Geological Society of America Bulletin, Geological Society of London Journal, Journal of Geology, Journal of Geophysical Research, Nature, New Scientist, Science, Science News Letter, and Scientific American to name a few. Over 1,000 citations are referenced and indexed five ways, by Time, Place, First Author, Source, and Subject. The indexes are cross-referenced to each entry in the book to aid the reader in locating original source materials and conducting independent research.
