    I f you are intending to use Kimmeridge Bay as the start of a trip to get to other nearby sites, this can be one of the most dangerous locations for fossil hunting. The tides have cut many people off in the past. Kimmeridge Bay and the adjacent cliffs and foreshore are rich in ammonites, reptiles and shells, but the best collecting sites to the east are a long walk if you are planning to look. The Kimmeridge Clay is the main rock type at this location, with older Corallian-aged rocks to the west and younger Cretaceous Chalk at the headland of White Nothe. There are also exposures of Upper Greensand and rocks above of Portland Stone and the Purbeck Group. Fossils can be picked out of the clay with a.

    The Sardoba dam failure: flood routing. After my blog post yesterday about the 1 May Sardoba dam failure in Uzbekistan, several people have asked about the flood routing between the breach and the large inundated area that I showed in my Planet Labs imagery shows this clearly, and it is quite an interesting story.. We can start with the area around the dam – . The Kimmeridge Clay here is to million years old and is composed of much degraded mudstone, formed on the Jurassic sea bottom when England once bathed in a sub-tropical climate. In fact, it was probably much the same as the day of our hunt, where the sun shone fiercely and the sky and sea were blue and mostly cloudless.
