    Tides Played Important Role in Evolution

    Dear editorial staff, I’m not sure if this is permissible in this format. If it is can you edit the first page to stand upright? I am still an amateur! What I want to say is: This is so exciting to me because the fossils I find around here all indicate to me trauma, from tidal events! These events most certainly directed evolutionary change and development, including increasing the oxygen levels in the water much the same as filters do so in an aquarium. Where I live feels like an Paleozoic, evolutionary test tube. ARTICLE LINK

    Mortality hash plate

    Just found today in my back yard. First daylight in 430 million years. It was found about two metres down. We are working on a house project. I just washed it off in the kitchen sink. My question is what would you do next? I have been thinking about prep work in general, I like it, should I just enjoy it as it is?
  3. I made a trip today to Albion Falls in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada by public transportation. Albion Falls is a classical waterfall that cascades over the Niagara Escarpment in Hamilton, Ontario and is 19 metres high. The waters flow north along the Redhill Valley as Redhill Creek to empty to Lake Ontario. Once a popular tourist destination, climbing up the waterfall is not allowed anymore due to paramedics having to rescue irresponsible tourists who have hurt and died from slipping and falling. I mostly ended up checking out the Grimsby Formation which is nicely exposed near the waterfall.

    Pentameroides subrectus

    From the album: Hamilton, Ontario Fossils

    Pentameroides subrectus (Hall and Clarke, 1892). Found on a road cut along the Niagara Escarpment in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. Reynales Formation, Clinton Group. Silurian, Llandovery epoch, Telychian age. Size is approximately 10 cm across.

    Sam Lawrence Park, Hamilton, Ontario

    I was looking back at my pictures I took in the summer and I realized I forgot to share pics of a park I discovered up on Hamilton’s Mountain with nice exposures of rock formations of the Niagara Escarpment. The park is called the Sam Lawrence Park at Concession Street which is just south of Hamilton’s downtown core. The park has a walk where one can see a nice view of the downtown Hamilton skyline. This walk at Arkledun Avenue is a popular photography destination and quite breath-taking on a good day.
  7. After going around in Hamilton, Ontario looking for a river/creek to check out the iconic Niagara Escarpment of the city, I decided to check out the Devil’s Punch Bowl which is located in Stoney Creek, Hamilton. Most of the waterfalls located in the old city of Hamilton are out of reach/barricaded/no-go zones with fines for trespassing because of safety reasons. Nearby Albion Falls and other waterfalls like Tiffany and Chedoke in the old city of Hamilton cannot be explored close up because of the tourists and locals that have died and severely injured themselves from falling while on the
  8. Yesterday and today I scouted two waterfalls on the Niagara Escarpment in Hamilton, Ontario. I only intended to check on what the winter has eroded away but I ended up finding some small fossils. The first waterfall I visited was the Devil’s Punchbowl. I only visited the lower falls (the one that runs over the Whirlpool Formation) of the Punchbowl as the creek of the fall has yet to dry up from warm weather. I ended up finding some small brachiopods and an orthocone on the Manitoulin Formation of this fall. Wow, I dont think an orthocone has been reported on the Manitoulin Fo
  9. Hi, can anyone lead me on determining this species of brachiopod? This brachiopod originates from the Reynales Formation, Clinton Group of Hamilton, Ontario from the Niagara Escarpment. A name I found for this shell is Stricklandia canadensis when I was reading a document about the Escarpment, though when I went to the fossiilid.info and the fossilworks websites there is no mention of the species. I began to think this could be a Stricklandia lens. The shell in the centre is approximately 4 cm long.

    Tabulate coral

    Found this on our bluff, part of Niagara Escarpment, tip of Door County, Wisconsin. Would love any more detail.
  11. Today I managed to explore and observe an exposure of the Queenston formation up close here in Hamilton, Ontario. I chose a site along the Red Hill Valley Expressway that was easy to access and get down to for a close look. The creek is right next to the highway. I have always passed by this exposure and anticipated the day I'll be able to observe it. The Queenston formation is the last Ordovician formation in south-western Ontario before the rocks hit the Silurian age. The Queenston is what overlains the Georgian Bay formation, the formation I use to hunt in frequently in Toronto, Ontari

    Fossil Hunting in Hamilton?

    Hi guys Im thinking of fossil hunting at some of Hamilton, Ontario waterfall areas like Albion Falls and Webster's Falls and does anyone have any pdf papers relating to the geology of the area? I heard there are various Silurian formations that can be found at Hamilton.
