Project Team: Bruce A. Tocher

Objective(s): To measure sections of MT. Goodenough Formation and collect samples for palynological preparation; to examine processed material for dinoflagellates; to determine the composition of these assemblages and describe them and the individual species; to correlate dinoflagellate assemblages from outcrop sections and wells; to interpret paleoenvironments and deposition conditions;

Project Description: The Researchers will collect rock samples for study of fossil algae (dinoflagellates) and will determine the geological age. They will correlate findings with similar material from wells and will determine climate and environment conditions at the time the rocks were deposited.
