  1. Hey hope y'all are doing well! Seems like I've been absent from here quite some time, huh? Between a rather intense semester at uni, and research work for the GeoCenter museum in Denmark, it's been a pretty darn busy past few months... But I'm back now, with some neat updates about the paleo stuff I've been up to lately Can't wait to browse through all the different TFF threads from the last weeks, too! The biggest thing I got up to - I participated for the first time in a paleontology conference!! It was really fun, I got to meet o

    I'm gonna be participating in a conference!!

    Just wanted to share this bit of good news with you guys - I was accepted, some time ago, to present at a paleo conference The conference, Progressive Palaeontology 2021, is organised by the Palaeontological Association and is hosted (online) by the University College London (my uni!). It runs from tomorrow until the 19th. Although registration is now closed, some talks will be uploaded to Youtube (it's possible for presenters to ask to have their talks stay up on Youtube, publicly, even after the event has finished). Now although the conference is mostly for master's and PhD
  3. Hi all Some of you may remember that I used to (and still do) research on fossils from the Late Cretaceous chalk of Denmark... Now there are 2 main chalk sites in Denmark, Møns Klint and Stevns Klint. My work focuses on the stuff from Møns Klint, but in all honesty there's some spectacular fossils coming out of both localities. One thing that both Møns and Stevns have in common is that fossils of mosasaurs (giant lizard-like marine reptiles) are extremely rare, with only a small handful of specimens found every year. A few years ago, I went to the Geomuseum Faxe (south of Copenhage

    Narrative Essay: Resurrecting the Cretaceous

    Looking through @KansasFossilHunter's blog, I saw one of his posts was a "narrative essay" (you should check it out, it's really good! ). This gave me the idea to write an account of one of my MKFE fossil hunts. I hope you guys enjoy it! Resurrecting the Cretaceous The fine, almost mist-like rain fell gently in sheets and imbued the skin of my face. Despite the lack of intensity, this slow downpour had been going on for the past half hour, and water was starting to seep through my clothing. I was beginning feel very cold. A loud metallic clank (p
  5. Just found out about this book - "Fossils of the Harrana Fauna and the Adjacent Areas" (2009), written by Hani Kaddumi. It basically describes the marine fauna of the Muwaqqar Chalk Marl Formation, a Maastrichtian unit represented in parts of Jordan. Due to faunal content and age, I think it'd be a good source for contextual information regarding my MKFRP project. Would anyone have a PDF of the book? citation details: Kaddumi, H. F. (2009). Fossils of the Harrana Fauna and the Adjacent Areas. Publications of the Eternal River Museum of Natural History, Amman, pp. 232-239.

    Plans for the 3rd Møns Klint Fossil Excavation

    Nowadays, I'm mostly focused on preparing for my high school finals. But in my free time... Well I started to plan the 3rd Møns Klint Fossil Excavation (MKFE), as part of the larger Møns Klint Fossil Research Program. This field session has been planned for mid-August, and will last about 2 weeks - needless to say, I'm pretty excited Especially when considering the success of the 2nd MKFE... Collection policy will remain mostly the same as last time, meaning that arthropod, cephalopod, echinoderm and vertebrate material will be the priority. Of course, there will be a slight ch

    The Echinoderm Collections

    Hey everyone, I recently came back from a trip to England. Most of the time was spent in museums, especially London's Natural History Museum. Over there, I met the Curator of Invertebrate Paleontology (Tim Ewin), who showed me around some parts of the Echinoderm Collections. Basically, the goal of this visit was to examine some of the echinoderms from the British Chalk, for some comparative research material for my MKFRP project. Some of the stuff in those collections is absolutely amazing - and the amount of material in there is really extensive. This thread will show some
  8. Hello, and welcome to my new MKFRP thread! In this new thread, there are going to be a lot more details, accounts, and of course… pictures, than in the previous one. I hope you enjoy it here For those who don't remember (or who haven't heard of this), the MKFRP is a research project based on the extensive collection and research of fossil material from the Lower Maastrichtian (Late Cretaceous) of Møns Klint, Denmark. The project was put in place given that this fossil site is highly diverse (more than 120 macrofossil taxa), but has been given too little paleontological attention.

    A bit of quantitative paleoecology

    Just got this new idea for a future MKFRP research avenue Basically, on the beach near the cliffs, there is this area filled with small bits of fossils washed out from the chalk (the so-called "washout zone"). I'll make a sampling of that area, with a few control variables included (i.e. sampling area, maximum sampling depth, fossil size class, quantity of fossils). The sampling will be done by scooping washout material with a bucket & spade, bringing it home and then picking out individual fossils. Based on the fossils collected, I'll then establish relative faunal abundances

    Møns Klint Paleontological Library - The "Storage Facility"

    If you guys might remember from a another tread, I said that some of the documents from the Møns Klint Paleontological Library are too large to be uploaded to TFF. Instead, the papers (see below) can be sent by email. This post can be considered as some sort of "storage facility", where all the records of large files are held. Keep in mind that not all of the papers make a direct reference to Møns Klint's paleo-fauna, but can instead be used as "comparative research material to contextualise and broaden understanding of MK's fossil fauna" (forgive my excess of pedantic language there)

    Fossils from Møns Klint

    A few days ago, I started in another thread a gallery of fossils from Møns Klint held at the "on-site museum" GeoCenter MK. I thought that it would be more appropriate to continue this gallery in the "A Trip to the Museum" forum. This post will deal with a multitude of fossils that are more common than the exceptional Danekrae fossils (but you'll see that some of them are rather rare). All the fossils pictured here are exhibited at "The Fossil Room". Hope you like them! 2 partial stems of the crinoid Isselicrinus sp. preserved in a single piece of chalk - uncommon

    Møns Klint Paleontological Library

    Hello everyone, and welcome to the Møns Klint Paleontological Library! It consists of (mostly) papers dealing with the chalk fauna from the Maastrichtian of Møns Klint, and a few related topics. Entrance fee is 10 eur- just kidding But if you guys want some of the larger PDF's (which can't be attached here), I can send them to you by email. Enjoy... -Adolfssen & Ward 2014: "Crossing the boundary: an elasmobranch fauna from Stevns Klint, Denmark" - describes the rather extensive record of various shark teeth from Maastrichtian and K-Pg boundary Danish sediments.
