1997), although Nature did not acknowledge Berthault’s prior work (Snelling 1997).
Furthermore, these experimental results have been confirmed by field observations. Helens subsequent to the well-known May 18, 1980, eruption resulted in the formation of a 762 cm (25 feet) thick deposit consisting of many thin, alternating fine-grained and coarse-grained laminae very similar to varves.
This deposit formed within just a few hours (Morris and Austin 2009, 50, 52–54). “A Novel Approach to Varve Counting Using μXRF and X-Radiography in Combination with Thin-Section Microscopy, Applied to the Late Glacial Chronology from Lake Suigetsu, Japan.” Quaternary Geochronology 13: 70–80.
Likewise, interpretation of other rock units consisting of many thin laminations makes more sense if one assumes that the laminae were formed rapidly.
A varve is defined as “A sedimentary bed or sequence of laminae deposited in a body of still water within one year’s time . The net result, in theory, is an “annual” varve consisting of a summer and winter depositional couplet layer.
Even uniformitarian geologists have acknowledged that stratification can occur quickly.
Almost ten years later, the results of similar experiments were published in Nature (Makse et al.
Six years ago the Bio Logos Foundation published an article entitled Christian Geologists on Noah’s Flood: Biblical and Scientific Shortcomings of Flood Geology (Davidson and Wolgemuth 2010).
