Please note that current
efforts at maintaining

to focus on impact
tectonics has waned
in comparison to prior years .

My latest work with two coauthors will
resubmitted to a scientifc  journal once
I muster enough motivation to reformat it and courage to face the criticism that will follow. It seems that most of the geological community fails to grasp the significance of far-field, impact-generated strains that terrestrial planets endure. The hypothesis that periodic bombartment of Earth by large bolides is a signifcant part of plate tectonics is proving difficult to prove, but I remain optimistic that uniformatarianism will soon include the wrinkles of punctuated catastrophism.
