The Paleontological Society is now accepting applications for two student members to participate in Geo-CVD 2019!

The American Geosciences Institute (AGI), in collaboration with other science societies including the Paleontological Society, invites members of the geoscience community from across the nation to come to Washington, DC, for the annual Geoscience Congressional Visits Day (Geo-CVD) on September 10-11, 2019.

A Giant Leap for the Geosciences

By Terri Cook, GSA Science Communication Fellow

Fifty years ago, 600 million people breathlessly watched a live television broadcast during which astronaut Neil Armstrong took humankind’s first steps on the surface of another world—an achievement that many still consider one of humanity’s greatest feats. The first lunar landing is all the more impressive when you contemplate that it occurred just eight years after our nation’s first space flight—Alan B. Shepard Jr.’s 15-minute suborbital “pop-up”—and less than seven months after Apollo 8’s thrilling initial voyage around the Moon.

upper plane bed

upper plane bed . A bed configuration under a unidirectional current that is characterized by a flat, almost featureless surface over which sediment transport is intense, both in suspension and on the bed. Some authors report very low, downstream migrating bed forms as being characteristic of this bed configuration (e.g., Best and Bridge, 1992). Current lineations are common on upper plane bed surfaces. Syn: upper flow regime plane bed; upper stage plane bed.
