COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS–I arrived this afternoon in beautiful central Texas to give a talk at Texas A&M University on bioerosion.  If you click the link you can see my PowerPoint slides.  The talk went well enough and there were many questions.  It is a fun topic because it is at an intersection of geology and biology.

Tomorrow Tom Yancey and I drive to Brownwood, Texas, to begin a field project in the Permian.  There are some very curious “worm tube” clusters that I hope to post photos of soon.  I’m excited to be able to work in the Permian, which I haven’t done since my dissertation days.

The weather is absolutely perfect here!
