  • Randall Irmis excavation

    Free talk by Randall Irmis, Thursday, July 11, 2019
    Some 70 million years before the first dinosaurs evolved, Moab was situated just north of the equator ~ a desert on the coast of a shallow ocean. Despite these hot and dry conditions, the Moab area was teaming with life ~300 million years ago, including some of the earliest mammal ancestors. Dr. Irmis will discuss ongoing collaborative fieldwork and research that is uncovering what kinds of animals and plants lived during this time, and what they tell us about the last time the Earth transitioned from an icehouse to greenhouse state.
