Hey, they didn't actually earmark that money... It's going into the "Holtz
travels to every museum collection in the world" fund... :-)
The questions is, where in the whole world would you want to go in
order to dig up something that would ADD TO current dino-paleo
knowledge? Not saying you cannot go to the old places (Argentina,
Chad, Egypt, Mongolia, Madagascar) but perhaps there is some untested
ground with explosed Mesozoic formations that deserves a look if only
there was money?
Late K continental Africa. (Okay, some of this is already underway).
Lacustrine/lagoonal deposits ANYWHERE, but most especially if they are
Triassic or Jurassic: we need to know a lot more about the little guys of
Big parts of Middle Asia (the -stans) are worth exploring.
