Yesterday, Dr. Brooks Britt from BYU and his student Hero and I visited the site not to check for bones, but to find sedimentalogical evidence for the age of the fossil bones. Dr. Britt and Hero are working on a paper correlating the dates of the different quarries in the Cedar Mountain Formation. This will help us in knowing when the animals lived in relationship to each other.
We hiked around the area noting paleosols. These are ancient soil horizons. We measured sections and thicknesses of channel sands. These are sandstone layers laid down by stream deposits.
