Recent climatic fluctuations including the Medieval Warm Period, and the Little Ice Age that generated European glaciers’ advancement. Big problems that hinder ice from retaining deep water – interstitial cavities, moulins, tunnels and conduits.
Randall continues poking holes in the “Ice Dam” model that credits “Lake Missoula” as the primary water source that carved the Channeled Scablands. Studies of glacial outburst floods reveal nothing that support the possibility of a 2100′ deep lake…
“Back to Bretz” to consider the likelihood that the floods were augmented by sudden rushes of meltwater from the Ice Sheet that loomed directly to the north of the entire suite of megaflood features, RC shows how this makes perfect and obvious sense.
We look at awesome landscapes and agree that the sheer immensity of the flooding events is beyond our abilities to comprehend. Questions about the formation of Moses Coulee and the standard “Ice Dam” model of repeated release are just not adding up!
RC continues to poke holes in the conventional view of the Ice Dam and impounded Lake Missoula, exposing evidence throughout the basins that indicate they were filled suddenly by flows incoming from the north, NOT by a century of enhanced rainfall!
We start off considering the movement and subglacial features of the Puget Lobe, with its extensive tunnel valley systems, drumlins, and obscure moraine. Great Lakes Region, New York’s Finger Lakes, Lake Pend Oreille, Lake Missoula, Omak Plateau…
With maps, photos, and drone video, we revisit the May “Contact at the Cataract” tour event with Darren from Grimerica, Ben from UnchartedX, Kyle and Russ from Brothers of the Serpent, and Bradley out in Arizona prepping for another tour with Randall.
The Channeled Scablands
During a summary review of the recent Sacred Geometry workshop in Sedona, Arizona, Randall gets charged and keeps on rolling into some of the hidden meanings and wonders of the esoteric studies. Why Sacred? What does it all mean? Better listen AGAIN!
More features and forms along the Snake River, on the Bonneville Flood’s catastrophic pathway across southern Idaho, north thru Hell’s Canyon to the Clearwater River confluence, where the modern towns of Clarkston and Lewiston are divided.
