Wow - that was very interesting about the dropstones! I never knew that but it makes sense. This is the first I've heard anyone talk about them so I'm wondering if Ute and Steve Marshall saw any of these stones in any of their cores?

Steve? Ute? Did you see any?

Also, the stone in your picture is very red. Can any of the researchers explain why and theorize where it might have come from?

I spoke to Doctor Dennis Darby this morning about the dropstone we found in one the cores. He told me that it is a sandstone, probably transported from somewhere in the Canadian archipelago were you can find sandstones in the ground. There are other areas as well were you can find sandstones but since the stone is transported by the ice we need to look at areas that have had glaciers. This makes the Canadian archipelago as a most reasonably candidate.
