I am just back after one month of fieldwork in Montana and Wyoming to work on the Sundance and the Twin Creek formations. This was the second and last field season of Project MAREST. Collected data will be soon processed, merged with data collected last year, and the results presented at the next GSA (Geological Society of Americal) Annual Meeting in Denver (September 2016).
As last year, Prof Steven Holland spent one week with me and my field assistant Elyse in the field. We also had a special guest from United Kingdom. Prof Gregory Price, partner of the project from Plymouth University, joined us for one week. He was happy to finally see the Sundance Formation and excited for the beginning of the second phase of the project at Plymouth at the start of 2017.
Also this year, I put together an on the roas diary where I recorded all the locations that we visited. You can see it by clicking on the picture below!
