A new research project, with investigators from Boise State University, The University of New Mexico, Utah State University, University of Nevada Las Vegas, Denver Museum of Nature and Science, and Museum of Northern Arizona, has been funded with a three-year, $815,000 grant by the National Science Foundation’s Sedimentary Geology and Paleobiology program.

This team of scientists, including Professors Karl Karlstrom and Laura Crossey from UNM’s Department of Earth & Planetary Sciences, is undertaking a detailed study to find new occurrences of fossils such as trilobites, brachiopods, and microfossils, to measure meter-by-meter how carbon-isotope values changed through time, and to apply new technologies for precise dating of rock layers.
