  • Potential mechanisms for the deposition of halite and anhydrite in a near-critical or supercritical submarine environment - Hutchison
  • Dinosaur Tracks, Eggs, and Bonebeds Explained Early in the Flood - Oard
  • Permian cross-bedded sandstones and their significance for global Flood models - Garner
  • YEC Geology in the Classroom: Educational Materials Challenges and Needs - Ross
  • Radiohalos in Multiple, Sequentially-Intruded Phases of the Bathurst Batholith, NSW, Australia: Evidence for Rapid Granite Formation During the Flood - Snelling
  • Radiocarbon in Permian Coal Beds of the Sydney Basin, Australia - Snelling
  • Clay content: A simple criterion for the identification of fossil desiccation cracks? - Whitmore, Strom
  • Preliminary Report and Significance of Grain Size Sorting in Modern Eolian Sands - Whitmore
