Field work travelog – Day 12, the Paleocene-Eocene boundary

Today has been a delightful day. Much learning was had. Our crew now includes expertise in paleobotany and stratigraphy, so we walked all around the rocks that bracket the Paleocene-Eocene boundary.

I learned a ton today and now beret understand the lake and river environments in the Hanna Formation.

We also found tons of plant fossils and – gasp – insect fossils.

Lots of research plans are being hatched.

This is an exciting moment!
