- UN ANÃLISIS ARQUEOASTRONÃ“MICO DEL EDIFICIO CIRCULAR Q152 DE MAYAPÃN. GALINDO TREJO, JESÚS // Estudios de Cultura Maya;2007, Vol. 29, p63
The round building Q152 at Mayapan has been often considered as an observatory similar to El Caracol at Chichen Itza. In this study I present a meticulous archaeoastronomical analysis which shows that this structure is rather a calendric-astronomical observatory. It signalizes the arrival of...

- The strontium isotope systematics of the Orange River, Southern Africa. de Villiers, S.; Compton, J. S.; Lavelle, M. // South African Journal of Geology;Dec2000, Vol. 103 Issue 3/4, p237
The [supSr/[sup 86]Sr ratio of Orange River water increases from 0.7081 at its headwaters in the basalt of the Drakensberg mountains, to a value of 0.7126 before its confluence with the Vaal River tributary. The concomitant increase in Sr concentration is from 0.08 to 1.28 micro M. The Vaal...
