Biogenic coastal deposits; Isla del Carmen, Gulf of California, Mexico Jorge Ledesma Vazquez UABC Ensenada Coastal sedimentary deposits including beach and dunes within the south-central region of the Gulf of California show a high percentage of biogenic components, up to 84%, derived from the fragmentation of organisms that, among other oceanographic factors, reflect wave energy and effect of seasonal winds. Our report shows that due to high-energy waves, coastal deposits on points or...

Comets: Implications for the Earth Gary Peterson San Diego State University Geological Sciences -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Comets originated in the earliest history of the Solar System. An early high energy stage pushed the volatile constituents (mostly water) and dust out and away from Sun and into the outermost Kuiper Belt and Oort Cloud. Billions of comets, possible up to a trillion, formed and reside there in stable orbits....
