@georgeob1,
Thank you for the recommendation. I hall try to fond it . Im in the middle of a book re the chemistry of fentonyl. Most of applied geology deals in the low Reynolds arena (laminar and Darcy flow), with the only exceptions in fluid geophysics and stream erosion.
Del operators in the Darcy world are the bases for most finite element models involving diffusion and mineralization

You're probably right. The fact is I remember more of the conclusions than the mathematical details of getting there. I was once very conversant with vector calculus ( inner & outer product, dell, and all that and the representation of the laws of physics in them, and in tensor format as well. Now I struggle to keep up.

I have a close friend who has been, for a long time, pursuing a revised structure for general relativity based on his view that the Lorentz transformation, based, as it is, on (1-v exp2/c exp2) exp-1 formulation, wrongfully excludes velocities greater than c ( the velocity of light). Removing this restriction does indeed resolve some of the mathematical and conceptual issues still plaguing general relativity theory. His has been an up hill struggle , likely because very few have the energy or will to go back to basic issues they have long since stopped thinking about, and the professional risks they face when looking under a rock they (and their peers) have long ignored. He had me and another friend undertake the chore of proofing his math: it turned out to be a daunting chore that forced me to wade through stuff I once knew but the details of which I had long since forgotten . He's now close to getting his work published in a Physics Journal.

By the way I'm currently reading a very insightful work by a dedicated geologist, Marcia Bjornerud, entitled "Timefulness". It's a fascinating journey through the geological perspective of science & physics starting with James Hutton's 1789 then revolutionary speculations on the age of the planet.

How does academic posturing contribute in any way to this thread?

@livinglava,
"Academic Posturing" is merely your characterization, and is based on just whatever it is that moves or perhaps agitates you. That's your problem, not mine. Farmerman and I were merely continuing a long-standing dialogue. You don't have to read it, and if you don't it's OK with me.

If you don't want to 'characterize' it as posturing, the question still stands what that post contributes to the thread topic.

@livinglava,
Such deviations and excursions are observably the rule, not the exception, on these threads. On what basis do you assume it is your prerogative to pass judgment on others on such common and trivial matters?? Piss off.

I find the thread topic interesting, so maybe if you want to engage in academic posturing or any other "deviations and excursions," you could start a different thread.

I'm probably guilty of the same in other threads where I don't value the topic enough to avoid my own 'deviations and excursions,' so I wouldn't presume to pass judgment, as you say.

You want it to continue down the path of posters describing their academic histories instead of underground climatological patterns?
