In one sense, Nebraska's history can be told through its fossil beds and forts, including the most modern, international fort, the Strategic Air Command. These are some of the museums that we would recommend to those who want to learn about Nebraska's history.

Gary Hochman has been producing award-winning television documentaries since 1980. During the past 20 years, Hochman has produced national documentaries for PBS, NOVA and The Discovery Channel. Hochman specializes in science programming and he has twice been awarded the prestigious Science Journalism Award by the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Hochman's most recent experience in producing, directing and writing national co-productions was Seeking the Real Jesse James , a joint production of NET and The Discovery Channel. This documentary traced the historical exhumation and forensic research investigation to identify the remains of the notorious outlaw. In 1995, he produced, wrote, and directed Buried in Ash , a documentary for NOVA. This award-winning documentary examined the science of paleontology through the experiences of University of Nebraska paleontologist Mike Voorhies. Voorhies uncovered clues to a disaster that killed herds of prehistoric rhinos, horses, camels, and birds ten million years ago at the internationally renowned Ashfall Fossil Beds in Nebraska. Buried in Ash received the following national awards: AAAS Science Journalism Award, Ohio State Award, a CINE Golden Eagle, and a Blue Ribbon from the American Film and Video Festival.

Editor's Angle


What Happens When Rocks Melt?
EDITOR'S ANGLE This issue of Geoscience Reports ends our series on radiometric dating. We realize that there are still many unanswered questions; however, we hope these articles have given our readers some insights into the approaches that have been taken by our scientists with respect to the time issue. We know our explanations are inadequate but our faith in the biblical account of earth history has not been shaken. Frequent references to geologic ages in the scientific literature do not validate their interpretations! We believe there is a reasonable explanation for the discrepancy between the biblical record and the views held by the scientific community. We do not know how or when these positions will be resolved but we are confident that God s Word will be vindicated.
Our young people need to know just how challenging the radiometric time frame is. The concepts and techniques used to determine radiometric dates should work. Awareness of this fact may discourage some students with respect to our beliefs. Some may even conclude that our faith is foolish. However, we believe our approach to science contributes significantly to its advance. Our work challenges the time frame constructed by the scientific community for earth s history. Our assumptions raise questions that secular scientists do not ask. Our perspective

    The Role of Amateurs
    Some paleontologists contend that, due to their overall scarcity and scientific importance, vertebrate fossils should not be collected casually or kept in private collections. But the reality is that if you spend enough time outdoors in Nebraska, regardless of your intended activity, sooner or later you will find a fossil, and the chances are that you will collect it. So, the question is, how can you enjoy fossils and the thrills of discovery without endangering scientific information? Figure 1. A Miocene fossil quarry near Valentine, Nebraska. Several plaster and burlap field jackets cover fossils in the background. Two three-toed horse jaws (center and foreground) are being excavated.

    While working on my PhD at the University of Iowa, I spent quite a bit of time looking for fossils. Although this buffalo ( Bison bison ) skull was found on a sandbar, and therefore has no stratigraphic control, it makes a great reference specimen. Further collecting at this locality (in western Iowa) has produced numerous fossil Bison specimens (including Bison cf B. occidentalis ) along with elk ( Cervus elaphus ), deer ( Odocoileus sp.), mammoth ( Mammuthus sp.), bear ( Ursus americanus ), and many others. Unfortunately, a specific source of the material (which could be studied as a site) has not been established. Much of the material has been recovered from point bars or as isolated elements protruding from the cut banks. Several broken and whole points (artifacts) have been recovered from the creek as well, but none in association with the fossils.
