Ian writes, "Last year after the Winter when the weather made Black Rock inaccessible, I posted a summary of what progress we had made and what we had learned. With 2008 now behind us, it's time to summarize another year. I'll also add a Q&A section to address some recurring questions."

Acknowledging everyone's help so far... - November 2008
The December 2008 issue of Discover Magazine has a section that covers a variety of scientists and science research from 2008. There's a brief blurb about Ian Kluft and his project to research the Black Rock impact crater theory. Since Ian considers this to be a Stratofox Team effort, and not just "his" project, he wanted to publish an "Acknowledgement Page".

Stratofox.Org's Crater Assault #3

The search for a suspected impact crater in the Black Rock Desert area of northern Nevada


Since I've just returned from an extended field trip, there wasn't proper time to compose a "typical Bob's Findings" article for this month. But I thought it would be nice to still give our readers the opportunity to view the most recent, preliminary results by a group of researchers known as the Stratofox organization, and of their fieldwork in the Black Rock Desert. So, instead of the "usual" article, this month's edition of "Bob's Findings" will simply be a couple of links to the Stratofox group's webpages that describe their latest efforts at trying to locate evidence for a suspected impact crater in Northern Nevada.
