New APN Volunteer producer, Dr. Jamie Anderson, joins Paul and Chris today to talk about her masters and PhD research that used some interesting dating methods. One of those was Tephrocronology, or, dating using ash layers. Combined with other methods, Tephrocronology is a powerful tool. We talk about that and other dating methods.
On today's episode we talk about the science behind the reported discovery of a 130,000 year old mastodon near San Diego, California. Why is science literacy important? What can we learn from the reactions of others? And, what makes the Nature Letter compelling?
