  1. https://www.fhsu.edu/news/2018/08/fossil-data,-images-from-sternberg-museum-now-available-online This is pretty cool. Sternberg museum is putting everything on-line. The search function is awesome. They still have a lot of stuff to get scanned, but everything is at least listed now. This can be a great tool.
  2. I went to the Cretacious!

    I spent the day at Old Hunstanton, and these are mostly from the Hunstanton formation, with one from the Ferriby Chalk formation. These are the ones that stumped me, but thought were worth picking up. I found belemnites and brachiopods but sadly no echinoids or crinoids. 108-99 mya.
  3. 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 based on percentages of particular fossil groups. The results obtained from the data will hopefully help to further understanding of the paleoecology of Møns Klint. Similar research has been done on places like Stevns Klint or Rügen, so I'd be expecting similar results for Møns Klint. Small preliminary hypothesis: fish remains won't have reach an abundance higher than ~5% Closeup picture of the "washout material"; taken from Meyer (2015) - "Fossilerne fra Møns Klint"
  4. During april i and a friend had the oportunity to spend a few days hunting in cretaceous of Normandy, hunting for echinoids. Day one : We drove from brittany through Le Havre to Saint Jouin de Bruneval and Antifer Cape. (3 hours and a half) We let the car on the beach parking lot and hiked south on the peeble shore looking for fossils in the boulders on the beach. The cliff is cenomanian with a bit of albian at the bottom. You have to look carefully on rocks surface for the familliar spherical shape. I found about 20 urchins but thats about it. No shark tooth, just a poorly preserved ammonite (mantelliceras) and a few rhynchonellas At some point we noticed tide was coming back faster than expected, most likely because of the wind pushing the water back. We had to quicken the pace, and made our way through the slippery covered with algae rocks. We finally managed our way back to the car and took the road to Fécamp where we had booked an hotel for the next 2 nights. some finds of the day : Crassiholaster subglobosus : Crassiholaster subglobosus : Cyclothyris difformis : See the all hunt gallery here http://www.thefossilforum.com/index.php?/gallery/album/2849-haute-normandie-april-2018/ or on my flickr : https://flic.kr/s/aHsmiwWft6

  22. Pink Cap-Blanc-Nez shell

    Hi all, Just wondering how I should go about with the prep of this one. It's from Cap-Blanc-Nez, France, and the matrix is Cretaceous chalk. Should I prep this using vinegar (and water)? If yes, how? Or is it better to go with the small metal picks? (The matrix is rather soft) Any other tips or things I should know before I tackle this one? Thanks in advance, Max
  23. Hello everyone, Tomorrow I'll be going for a day-long field trip to the Turonian chalk of Northern France - but I won't be going to the usual Cap Blanc Nez. Rather, I'll be going to a small exposure of chalk in a forest (near Hesdin). Last time I went, I didn't find much (apart from a few bryozoan fragments and a piece of a cidarid spine) - though I hope that this time, I'll find more material.. I plan to also take a few chalk nodules for me to work on back at home, and potentially find more fossils. I hope that what I find will be able to serve as some sort of "comparative research material" for my MKFRP project. Bucket list: -Echinoderm remains of any kind (except holothuroid or irregular echinoid) -Shark tooth -(I know it's a long shot, but hey) Coniasaur remains I'll of course post a report on TFF after the field trip. Best, Christian
  24. Hi all, Is this a shark tooth? I found it in the red chalk at Speeton, Yorkshire. It’s about 1cm in length. Thanks! Gillian
