One possibility is that when the area became submerged, the Dinos
struggled in the waters until they again found footing as the waters
drained away leaving another mud flat. Were all of the roots vertical?
Where they occational single roots? Were they clumps of roots. It used
to be that vertical tree stumps were thought to be insitu trees. All the
vertically standing logs and stumps on the bottom of Spirit Lake by Mt.
Saint Hellens prove that wrong. 'Vertical' root may be no different.
I'm not going to sweat much about this one.

HA! HA! HA!, heheheh. That's rich!!! Would you really expect a
uniformitarian to stretch his mind so much as to envision such a thing?!!!
There has been a revolution in geology since the discovery of turbidites. I
have read that a large portion of strata has been reinterpreted as
turbidite sediments. I expect that as more catastrophist geologists look
again the the depoists we may see tsunami-like interpretation of strata.
Hehehe...from a uniformitarian scientific journal!!!!! Ha! Ha!

I have downloaded your large web file and have begun making comments.
Rome wasn't built in a day. Sheesh.

The only ones who can tell you if the pollen was flattened or not were
the original researchers. Since one is a close personal friend of yours,
give him a call.
