FW: [sednet] REU in fluvial sedimentology (But with a dinosaur angle)
For the students everywhere on this list, especially if you have a geologic
background but want to work with dinosaur bearing strata. I have been
meaning to forward this and wish to hell that I could go. The CMF in part,
is contemporaneous with the Potomac Grp (i.e., Arundel Clay) of Maryland.
Thanks to Jim Kirkland, a couple years ago I was privileged to attend his
post Snowbird SVP field trip (remember that Tracy?) and toured many of the
important dino sites therein. I liked it so much I started looking for jobs
in Utah/Colorado! Alas, I'm still here in the Clay...

Subject: [sednet] REU in fluvial sedimentology
Please announce to any students interested in Sedimentology, Fluvial
Processes, Basin Research, Soils and Paleosols
Announcing a Research Experience for Undergraduates:
"Reconstructing Rivers : Fluvial Environments of Cretaceous Strata in
Dinosaur National Monument"
Funded by the National Science Foundation. Hosted by Gustavus Adolphus
College, St. Peter Minnesota.
Project participants' primary goal is an interpretation of the
environment of deposition of the Cretaceous Cedar Mountain Formation.
We will develop this interpretation primarily through field research at
Dinosaur National Monument, in Utah and Colorado, where important new
dinosaur fossil discoveries necessitate a better understanding of the
sedimentary environment represented by the fossil-bearing strata. We
will also investigate the sedimentary processes responsible for
deposition of the Cedar Mountain Formation by constructing an
experimental flume model at the Saint Anthony Falls Laboratory
(University of Minnesota) in Minneapolis. Project participants will
receive housing and a generous stipend. The project is open to
undergraduate students finishing their sophomore and junior years, or
to exceptionally well-prepared first-year students. We strongly
encourage application by women and students of minority backgrounds.
For more information, see the project website
or contact Dr. Julie Maxson at email@example.com, (507) 933-7442.
Applications will be considered until April 30, 2002
