Evidence investigated that led to the Missouri River drainage basin landform origins research project

The following essay briefly outlines alternative hypotheses considered and evidence investigated prior to undertaking the Missouri River drainage basin landform origins research project, which is based entirely on previously unstudied topographic map evidence. Each phase of my study described here is documented by communications submitted to the North Dakota Academy of Science and/or by abstracts […]

Missouri River Drainage Basin Landform Origins Research Project is a 21st century Expedition of Discovery

  The Missouri River drainage basin landform origins research project is the first known scientific expedition of discovery to systematically study detailed topographic map evidence for all major drainage divide areas within and surrounding the Missouri River drainage basin and in a sense is a modern-day equivalent of historical voyages of discovery where explorers traveled […]

Missouri River drainage basin landform origins research project, overview essay

A collection of detailed research data based on topographic map evidence Abstract: The Missouri River drainage basin landform origins research project introduces a fundamentally new and different geomorphology paradigm by interpreting previously unexplained topographic map evidence to determine origins for all major Missouri River drainage basin drainage divides. Detailed essays illustrating and describing interpreted topographic […]

About the “thick ice sheet that melted fast” geomorphology paradigm

Abstract: The “thick ice sheet that melted fast” geomorphology paradigm is being introduced in the Missouri River drainage basin research project essays by interpreting large quantities of previously neglected topographic map drainage divide evidence. Fundamental differences between the “thick ice sheet that melted fast” geomorphology paradigm and the prevailing geomorphology paradigm are related to number […]

Missouri River drainage basin landform origins research short project overview

The Missouri River drainage basin research project is using topographic map interpretation methods to determine landform origins along approximately 500 different drainage divides within and surrounding the Missouri River drainage basin. A separate essay is made for each drainage divide area, which usually includes two location maps and eight examples of topographic maps along with […]
