:: Quote of the week ::

"I think all this superstring stuff is crazy and is in the wrong direction. I don’t like that they’re not calculating anything. I don’t like that they don’t check their ideas. I don’t like that for anything that disagrees with an experiment, they cook up an explanation… I doesn’t look right."

Dear WM, I send you two working papers (Paper 1, Paper 2) that describe new types of information on poorly known trace elements and their variations along the Iceland-Reykjanes Ridge region. The interpretations have been challenging. The data are available on the EarthChem Library and PeTDB for anyone to use and/or further interpret. Please solicit comments on our papers on your Mantle Plume website.–Jean-Guy Schilling
