Geology of the World lectures
(not for paleo cert credit)
Looking for the last dinosaur in China - FREE LECTURE
Kirk Johnson very recently traveled to northern China with an international
team of scientists to search for the Cretaceous-Tertiary (K-T) boundary.
The K-T boundary is the time, 65.51 million years ago, when an asteroid
smashed into Mexico and the World suffered a huge number of extinctions.
New discoveries from the border of China and Russia in Heilongjiang Province
make this one of the most interesting new research areas for the K-T boundary.
Have a look at the new Leprino Family West Atrium and be the first people
to hear the results from Kirk Johnson's most recent expedition.
