Excerpts from The Origin of the Carolina Bays
The following texts are from Douglas Johnson's work as presented in his book "The Origin of the Carolina Bays", Volume IV of Columbia University's Columba Geomorphic Studies series. Johnson is using these arguments to correctly dismiss the direct meteorite impact theory. We see his observations as supporting our ejecta blanket hypothesis, where the bay depressions are imperfections in the surface of the blanket created during emplacement. The entire bulk of the sand stratum in which the bays are contained is considered to be ejecta by us.
The first excerpt is from pages 89 - 93.
