Quotes

"we understand the physics of simple things like how oceans become acidic" Richard Norris, a paleobiologist at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego,  told me in an interview last fall...
"We documented five movement events in the two and a half months the pond existed and some involved hundreds of rocks", says Richard Norris, "so we have seen that even in death valley, famous for its heat, floating ice is a powerful force in rock motion. but we have not seen the really big boys move out there….does that work the same way?"
"we were sitting on a mountainside and admiring the view when a light wind kicked up and the ice started cracking. suddenly, the whole process unfolded before our eyes" said Richard Norris to the Los Angeles Times
