About the Author

Benjamin Jordan received his PhD in geological oceanography from the
University of Rhode Island’s Graduate School of Oceanography after earning
his BS in geology, with honors, at Brigham Young University. His graduate
work focused on the correlation and geochemical evolution of volcanic
deposits in Central America. He is first or contributing author of three
books and more than a dozen peer-reviewed articles. He has also served as a reviewer for multiple academic journals. His favorite work experiences
have been co-leading fieldtrips in Oman and Hawaii and participating in
research excursions in sixteen countries, including in the South Pacific and
seventeen states, mapping and sampling underwater volcanoes. Currently
Ben is an associate professor at Brigham Young University-Hawaii and an
active member of the American Geophysical Union, the Geological Society
of America, the Tsunami Society and the International Association of
Volcanology and Chemistry of the Earth’s Interior.

Warren Aston is an independent researcher based in Brisbane,
Australia. Since 1984 his exploratory efforts throughout the Near East
and Mesoamerica have identified the candidates for “Nahom” and the
Old World “Bountiful” now accepted by most LDS scholars. In 2013 he
co-founded the Khor Kharfot Foundation, leading several international
teams undertaking fieldwork at the site. He is the author of In the Footsteps
of Lehi (1994); Lehi and Sariah in Arabia: The Old World Setting of the
Book of Mormon (2015) and numerous papers and articles. Warren’s
findings have been reported in Church Education System manuals,
BYU Studies Quarterly, Encyclopedia of Mormonism and the Journal
of Book of Mormon Studies. They have also been presented at non-LDS
forums such as the annual Seminar for Arabian Studies in the UK and in
publications such as the Journal of Arabian Studies. His work continues
in both Arabia and Mesoamerica, including a major Book of Mormon
Central exploratory project focused on the hill Ramah-Cumorah.
