  • RE: Dinosaur landscapes

    It was surprising to read in Dinosaur-age landscapes
    lurk in Southern Hemisphere (Science, June 28) that the African Surface of Lester King was not cited: see his Morphology of the Earth: a study and synthesis of world scenery (1967). The remains of this early Tertiary (Cenozoic) land-surface is found throughout the Earth, even in temperate latitudes (Walsh: Walsh PT. 2001.The Paleogeography of the southern half of the British Isles and adjacent continental shelf at the Palaeogene/Neogene (g/n) boundary and its subsequent modification: a reconsideration, Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Slaskiego ul. Bankowa Katowice, 1-160. Cosmogenic ages simply confirm King`s universal hypothesis linked with plate tectonics.
