Toba Volcano 6. Acknowledgments & 7 References

Original Article

By George Weber

Toba Volcano 6. Acknowledgments

Sincere thanks to all the authors listed in the References and to all those that have worked, are working and will work in the field - as long as they publish their results.

Many thanks to all the scientists and their publishers (among which my compulsory weekly reading Nature figures foremost) whose drawings, charts, photographs, data, arguments and ideas I have used and sometimes adapted to the requirements of the Internet where this article is published exclusively. Wherever possible, the source for materials used is given so that the scientific labourers and their publishers do not feel left out or cheated.

I hope that many readers will follow up and go back to the sources that have fed this article. There is plenty more there to draw from.

A special thanks to Tim Gillin of Australia for his original thinking and his ideas. It was Tim who about 2 years ago in all innocence started me off on what I have come to think of as "the Toba trip". I have often cursed him for it, but now that it is done, I feel mostly grateful.

My gratitude also goes to the ladies of the Kantonsbibliothek Baselland at Liestal, Switzerland, for invariably filling even the most outlandish request for article reprints. It can't have been easy.

And last but not least, a great big kiss to my wife Eloi in gratitude for all she has had to put up with while my head has been on Toba She has had to put up with quite a lot, I can tell you!

Needless to say, I alone remain responsible for what I have written here. Blame me for it, but be kind and merciful even in your wrath.
