Museum of Geology Summer Field Classes
>From Darrin Pagnac:
<< Hello all. It's time once again to start thinking about the summer field
season. The Museum of Geology at the South Dakota School of Mines in Rapid
City is offering a number of field paleo classes available for graduate or
undergraduate credit, or just for the fun of getting your hands dirty in the
field. Here is a breif overview of this year's itinerary...
*May 14 to 25 *Join the Museum staff to collect Late Pleistocene (Ice Age)
fossil vertebrates, at *Fossil Lake**, Oregon, *one of the most prolific
fossil sites in North America. Coordinated by and with permission of Dr.
*July 2 to 13 and July 16 to 27* *Jurassic Dinosaurs and Mammals *- near
Sundance, Wyoming. Excavation continues at this Morrison Formation locality.
*Camarasaurus* and *Allosaurus* are the major dinosaurs at this quarry. Tiny
primitive mammals have been found amongst these large beasts. Join a team of
graduate students as they expand the quarry. Coordinated by Dr. Darrin
*July 16 to 27* Join an expedition to excavate *Dinosaurs of the Judith
River Formation* - This expedition takes you back in time to discover the
small and large beasts that roamed the area during the Late Cretaceous. Join
Late Cretaceous fossil experts, Mr. David Parris and Mr. Randy Moses, in
investigating the dinosaurs and other fossils from north central Wyoming.
Coordinated by and with permission of Mr. Parris.
*July 30 to August 10 Giant Fossil Sea Reptiles from the Late Cretaceous
Western Interior Sea* - Join this expedition along the Missouri River near
Chamberlain, South Dakota, to search for and help collect Cretaceous marine
reptiles, particularly mosasuars and plesiosaurs. We will also be
collecting Miocene mammals at the classic Bijou Hill fossil locality.
Coordinated by and with permission of Dr. James Martin and Mr. David
*August 20-August 31: Cretaceous dinosaurs from **South Dakota***
Students will participate in analysis of a fascinating locality in the Hell
Creek Formation of South Dakota. This site contains abundant material from
duck-billed dinosaurs, *Triceratops*, and *Tyrannosaurus*. Coordinated by
Dr. Gerald Grellet-Tinner.
