To these attracted to a existence in technology, Sir Peter Medawar, Nobel laureate, deflates the myths of invincibility, superiority and genius; as an alternative, he demonstrates it's normal experience and an inquiring brain which are necessary to the scientist's calling.

Fig. 48). , 1994). The stratigraphic succession consists of carbonate rocks of the Black River Group overlain by carbonate and/or siliciclastic rocks of the Trenton Limestone/Utica Shale. Rocks within this interval were deposited across a shelf-slope-basin tectonic setting characterized by complex facies relations. There is no clear agreement in the literature regarding the litho- or chronostratigraphy of these rocks. Lithostratigraphy discussed herein follows Fisher (1977, 1982). The upper part of the Lowville Formation, of B.

Walters (Plate 5) and Conoco No. 1 Einar Dyhrkopp wells in Gallatin County, Illinois (localities 150 and 99). Whole-rock analysis of the K-bentonite in the Superior Ford well show it to be chemically indistinguishable from the Deicke. In the northwestern part of the basin, the Deicke is thin or absent, with little or no expression on wireline logs. North of LaSalle County, Illinois, the bed pinches out on the southern flanks of the Wisconsin Arch. Likewise, in northeastern Illinois and northern Indiana the Deicke is thin or absent apparently as the result of erosion or nondeposition on the crest of the Kankakee Arch during late Turinian time.

Most of these beds, except for B-8 (30 cm to 70 cm), are relatively thin (1 cm to 12 cm) and their correlation beyond the Chattanooga region is uncertain. Haynes (1994) has noted several K-bentonite beds, other than the Deicke and Millbrig, in the upper part of the Carters Limestone and lower part of the Hermitage Limestones in northwestern Georgia and northeastern Alabama. These beds may be equivalent to those in the Chattanooga region. Ordovician rocks in the thrust sheets bounded by the Helena and Kingston thrust faults were tectonically transported westward into juxtaposition with the Midcontinent platform facies.
