You're the man, Andrew! Thanks so much for helping push us further towards the goal. Such a great group of backers!
Thanks George! We really appreciate your generous pledge of support for this research. Fieldwork plans are shaping up now. Fingers crossed on meeting our fundraising goal - your donation is a big jump forward!
"Rhythmite" is a geological term for rhythmically-bedded sediments - repeated deposition of layers all with similar characteristics. See Wikipedia > Touchet Formation for a description of these particular deposits.
