  How The Earth Was Made  

The series of HOW THE EARTH WAS MADE travels the globe to reveal the geological processes that have shaped our planet. We will look at a single location and examine how the features that we see today have formed over millions of years—whether by colliding continents, volcanic eruption or the abrasive power of vast ice sheets. These processes, which intimately affect the way we live today, have been lost in the mists of time. Using the clues that were left behind, combined with expert evidence from geologists in the field, this series rolls back the millennia to see how the slow but immensely powerful forces of geology have shaped our world.

-So here we’ve got the fossil of a baby whale. You can see the lower jaw down here with some teeth, and the shoulder, the backbone, some ribs and all curled around, actually the tail comes right back to near the head.

 

As if finding whales in the desert wasn’t intriguing enough, there is yet another mystery to be solved. A lot of the fossils, of a very young Dorudons like this one, a delicate massif stone helps explain why so many baby whales died in this place.

 

-Well, so, finding that whale fossil told us we were in the ocean. These rocks actually tell us a lot more about what type of ocean we were dealing with. These are all fossilized mangrove roots.

 

These roots would’ve been below water, the mangrove trees would’ve risen above it.

 

-Since trees don’t grow out of a deep ocean, we know that this area was actually under shallow ocean at the time these rocks were deposited, something probably that looked like the Florida everglades where there are mangroves growing now.

 

Smith has discovered the shoreline of the ancient sea. The shallowness of the water could explain why there were so many young animals here.

 

-So one idea: there is a bunch of these baby whale fossils found in this area, and this would’ve been a shallow protected bay and that maybe the whales came just to birth their young. It is absolutely incredible to see a fossilized whale in a place that right now, gets less than a millimeter rain fall a year. It’s as much convincing evidence for geological changes I can imagine.

 

The pieces of the puzzle are coming together to reveal the Sahara’s watery past.

 

-So 40 million years ago, this desert would’ve been covered in the middle of this valley by a shallow bay, probably a brilliant tropical blue green color, the shoreline would’ve been off along the horizon, so mangrove trees in the shallow is parts of it.

 

Inland would’ve been a vibrant combination, of rain forest and swamp land. The whales would’ve been drawn to this ancient shore because of the plentiful supply of food. But their ocean is about to vanish.

 

Marine fossils found in Europe and Africa are evidence that this ocean stretched almost half way around the world and connected Asia to the Atlantic. It’s called the Tethys Sea and much of the Sahara was submerged under it. The mystery is how and when this lush water world turned into the barren wasteland we see today.

so here we got some fossils of the baby whale,you can see the low joy down with some teeth, the shoulder, backbones, some rips around actually the tale come near the head. as it find whales in the desert, what entree enough, yet there is another mystery to be solved. a lot of fossils are very young adults like these one. a delegate Marshal stone explain why so many baby whales die in these places, wow finding the whale fossil tell us we are in the ocean, these rocks tell us more about what type ocean we were doing in.these are all fossil type of root. these roots would have been below water, and the macro tree would rose above it. since tree doesn't grow up in the deep ocean, we know that this area actually was under shallow portion these rocks pose it.something probably look like Florida Agra bay where the mangri tree is growing up there now.smith have discovered the short line of the ancient sea.the shallowness could explain why there were so many young animals here.so when i dig these bunch of baby whale fossils found in this area, this could be a shallow protection bay, maybe the whales came here to birth their young.it is absolutely incredible to see the fossil as well as the place get less than a millimeter running for a year. it is as convinced evidence of geology changes as i can imagine. the pieces of fossils are coming together to reveal what water passed. so 40million years ago the desert would be covered in the middle of the valley by a shallow bay,probably a real tropical green blue color, the coast line would be as long as Hawaii, so magnri trees and shallow part of it. inner would be a vibrate combination of rain forests and small plane. the whale would be drown to the shore because there is plenty of supplies of food.but their ocean is about to vanish.marine fossils found in Europe and Africa are evidence that this ocean are stretched half way around the world, connecting Asia to the Atlantic.it is called the Tahiti sea, and much of the ter would submerge under it. the mystery is when and how these much water would turn to the barren waste land we see today.

So 40 milllion years ago, this desert would have been covered in the middle of this valley by a shallow bay, probably of billiant tropical blue green color. The shoreline would have been also along the horizon, some mangrove trees in the shallowest parts of it.

Inland would have been a vibrant combination of rain forest and swampland. The whales would have been drawn to the ancient shore because of the plentiful supply of food.

"So, one idea that there's a bunch of these baby whale fossiles found in this area  and this would have been a shallow protected bay that maybe the whales just came to birth their young."

"It is absolutely incredible to see a fossile as well as a place that right now gets less than a millimetre rainfall a year. It as much can be seen as evidence for geologic changes I can imagine."

The pieces of fossiles are coming together to reveal the Sahara's watery past.

"So, 40 million years ago, this desert would have been covered in the middle of this valley, by a shallow bay, probably a billion tropical blue-green colours. The shore line would have been -- along the horizon, so mango trees and shallow as parts of it."

Inland would have been a vibrant combination of rain forest and swanp land. The whales would have been drawn to the ancient shore because of the plentiful supply of food. But their ocean is to vanish.

Marine fossiles found in Europe and Africa are evidence that this ocean stretched almost half way around the world, and connected Asia to the Atlantic. It's called "- Sea" and much of the Sahara was submerged under it. The mystery is how and when this lush water world turned into barren wasteland we see today.
