instructor. Graduate credit requires graduate standing and the submission of
a paper in addition to other course requirments.
>        During the 1998 course, emphasis will be on the boundary between
the Cretaceous and Tertiary rocks of northwestern Colorado and northeastern
Utah. This was the time when dinosaurs became extinct and modern groups of
mammals originated and diversified. Like all geologic events, where present
it can be mapped and quantified on a local level. While the section of
northwestern Colorado is not as finely tuned as in some other areas, it has
never been adequately studied. The field school will permit the study of
this area, while providing students with the opportunity to construct and
interpret geologic maps, and to place the fossils collected in a logical
setting. The entire course is dedicated to the development of the kind of
information and training that persons specializing in fossil vertebrates
will need to understand in order to work in the discipline.
