"Modern Clues Unearthed For an Ancient Minerotrophic Hydrological Cycle"

This picture to the left from the Canadian Encyclopedia is of Fossil Hill on Axel Heiberg Island which is one of Canada's northern most islands in their Northern Territories. It is west of Greenland and as far as containing any fossils, they are mostly more accurately described as mummified wood. The wood is real and it will burn. It's simply been very well preserved. Take note also of the geologic pattern called terracing along this hillside. This is often called Lake Terracing because as water recedes, the waves have an eating away effect at the lower shore lines. This place was at one time under massive amounts of water. A mega-sunami has been presented by some to as to a possible extinction event which snapped off the trees along the hillside and buried them in the Buchanon Lake Formation below this Hillside. Some 10,000 ancient Metasequoia logs are presumed buried under this silt and other sediment.

The picture above comes from a recent article dated Feb 10, 2012 in the online version of a Canadian newspaper of the 'Calgary Herald' The article highlights evidence of an ancient thriving ecosystem which doesn't even remotely exist as it once did. The article is here:

Paleontologists reveal ancient Arctic ecosystem teeming with life  

Fossils from Ellesmere Island reveal a much-warmer past 

 and here is a 2001 reprint of an 1986 article in Time Magazine which relates about the original discovery by a supply Helicopter Pilot who noticed the stump field, later landed and collected samples and flew them back to researchers in 1985. Great stuff to read.

Unearthing a Frozen Forest

Now look at these maps to get a geographical perspective of just where this location is they are talking about.

This location is almost directly on top of the North Pole as you can observe. Axel Heiberg Island has been inhabited in the past by Inuit people, but was uninhabited by the time it was named by Otto Sverdrup, who explored it in 1900-01. He named it after Axel Heiberg, financial director of the Norwegian Ringnes brewery which sponsored the expedition. The top animated illustration on this page of what they believe was a very bio-diverse ancient world is backed up by the fact that numerous fossils of both plants and animals have been found that not only was this a mild temperate forest ecosystem, but it also had elements of tropical ecosystem components like Palm trees, Tapirs, small Rhinoceras type of creatures and even an entire beaver dam was discovered with the remains of a beaver, the well preserved mummified dam construction wood (not mineralized rock, but real wood that burns) which of course has the characteristic teeth marks of the construction engineer (The actual Beaver) who built the dam. Inside this debris area was also found the fossil of a crocodile like creature along with turtle fossils. Creatures that don't even exist in Scandinavia today in the wild.

Paleoclimate Project Shows Arctic Temperatures and Ecosystems Highly Sensitive to Carbon Dioxide Levels

This is the island location where, thanks to climate change melting glacial ice cover has revealed numerous forest tree stump fields and an area called the Buchanan Lake Formation  where they have estimated that approximately 10,000+ trees and logs are buried there as a result of a catastrophic event. At this point in the interest of time, I'll post below some of the relevant online PDFs which should go further and deeper into what was found up in this region of the world.

"Buchanan Lake Formation" 

 There's a large photo in the above link and at the top of this article here that shows hills in the background. I'd like you to take a special note of the terracing (caused by water as in a Lake wave effect) on the hillside in the background and keep a mental note of this. This is an anomaly found in many parts of the Earth where researchers like those describing the evidence for the source of the Washington State Scablands phenomena say were proof of massive volumes of water from a large body of lake water which caused the carving out of the geology. They call this ancient lake - "Lake Missoula". Just make a mental note of this  for now.

Eocene Meridional Weather Patterns Reflected in the Oxygen Isotopes of Arctic Fossil Wood

"Arctic Redwood Fossils Are Clues to Ancient Climates"

National Geographic - March 26, 2002 interview with Hope Jahren, a geobiologist at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland 

  This was a great article and gets to the heart of what the clues and evidence would by for such an ancient hydrological cycle. Though the researchers it should be noted DO NOT make any such conclusions. Given the ideological direction modern day science has mandated we all take, we can understand why. But the subject is the study of Oxygen Isotopes and interpreting those findings by researchers Hope Jahren and Leonel Silveira Lobo Steinberg. What they reveal about weather patterns back then and the actual source of the water which hydrated the mummified Dawn Redwood (Metasequoia) wood samples offers some of the best sources for  understanding deep earth Primary Water origins.  On that note, here is an article dealing with deep Earth's ability to create what researchers in Bond, Germany call "Primary Water"

Life-giving rocks from a depth of 250 km - Minerals act as oxygen reservoirs, stopping the earth from becoming a barren planet 

The above link is interesting. If what they are saying is true, that oxygen and hydrogen are stored in various minerals found deep within the mantle and as they near the surface through a type of elevator phenomena, they proceed to recombine and form new water or what some call the fossil water in it's clean unadulterated pristine state, this could go along way in helping explain what even Viktor Schauberger tried to convey in just so many words. Clearly understanding just how the deep Earth forces work to bring those Oxygen & Hydrogen together to form water could go along way in developing technologies which could reverse the process and give us Hydrogen as a clean fuel source which thus far has eluded us. Here are some more important links on those who investigate "Primary Water" or "Fossil Water". Some great info! Under the ERIC link there is a great paper dealing with "Primary Water" in the research links.
