NEW ALBANY, MISSISSIPPI — One of the main advantages of being a geologist in a liberal arts program is the diversity of experiences our students and faculty have. While some Wooster geologists are enjoying a “soft rock” adventure in the Cretaceous-Tertiary sediments in the Deep South, others are exploring “hard rock” quarries in the North. Later this summer we may have simultaneous posts from Alaska, Iceland, Utah and Israel.
Today the southern expedition was very successful in its task to find bryozoans just below and just above the Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary. Paul Taylor is a happy man.
