Field work travelog – Day 14, Another view of the Paleocene-Eocene boundary

Today was another long but productive field day. We decided to take a look at the Paleocene-Eocene boundary in a slightly different part of the field area.

The day started with driving to what I recalled add a good starting point. My memory wasn’t so great, but we made it work anyway.

We made two transects across the Paleocene-Eocene boundary. Not much in the was of new samples or research was done, but plans are hatching, and I have a fairly clear idea of what’s going to happen in future years.

Sadly, tonight is our last night in the Hanna Basin. Happily, that means that tomorrow we’re heading to Natural Trap Cave for the next part of this summer’s adventures!
