In Search of Noah's Ark

Dr. Gerald E. Aardsma
ARP Dr. Gerald Aardsma of The Biblical Chronologist has taken a fresh approach to the search for Noah's Ark. The Bible says that Noah's Ark landed in "the mountains of Ararat". Ararat refers to a region, not a specific mountain. Dr. Aardsma decided to use both biblical and scientific data in a new way to search for Noah's Ark in that region. Dr. Aardsma then obtained characteristics such as elevation and location for the remaining candidates. In February 2008, Dr. Aardsma used publically available satellite coverage of the Mt. Cilo area as a check on IO3.

ARP Dr. Aardsma Scientist, Chronologist, and Christian Dr. Aardsma Dr. Gerald E. Aardsma (shown at right in Israel in June 2000) obtained B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in physics from the University of Guelph in 1978 and 1979 respectively, and a Ph.D. in nuclear physics from the University of Toronto in 1984. During his Ph.D. studies, and subsequently as an NSERC Postdoctoral Fellow, Dr. Aardsma worked in the newly founded field of accelerator mass spectrometry, a field which is now widely employed for radiocarbon and other rare-isotope dating methods. Physical dating methods such as radiocarbon play an important role in the construction of historical chronologies. Dr. Aardsma's background in physics, and his specialization in radioisotopic dating methods provide him with the tools needed to critically evaluate secular dates and their relationship to biblical chronology. Dr. Aardsma is not only a physicist and a chronologist, he is also a conservative Christian. His research reflects a high view of both the scientific and the biblical data bearing on any question. Dr. Aardsma has presented his work on biblical chronology at both scientific and theological conferences. (See for example: Near East Chronology: Archaeology and Environment. Note: Dr. Aardsma's books, A New Approach... (first edition published in 1993, second edition 1995), The Exodus Happened 2450 B.C. (published in 2008), Noah's Flood Happened 3520 B.C. (published in 2015), and Aging: Cause and Cure (published 1n 2017) as well as several dozen BC articles (1995--2008) are not included in the following list.
