Re: [dinosaur] The most promising fossiliferous localities in the world



Long term, exposures in Greenland and Antarctica currently covered by ice.

But many of the places you mentioned are promising, as are areas known to produce dinosaur-aged terrestrial fossils but only preliminarily explored (e.g., some sites in Chile, eastern Africa, Uzbekistan & Kazakhstan, etc.) ÂAnd really, sometime it is just the less-explored parts of the same region (i.e., the current work in various parts of Utah are highly productive recently.)

Good day! I would like to ask, what in your opinion are the most promising yet unexplored localities for dinosaur discoveries in the world? Far-east Russia, Antarctica, India and Pakistan, Central America or some other places with preserved Mesozoic terrestrial sediments? Thank you in advance! Tom
