Hey everyone Hope you're all good Some of you might remember, I was talking last year about the fact that I was writing a paper about the wonderful opalised fossils of Australia.. For numerous reasons (including some of which still persist e.g. high school deadlines), I basically put that project 'on hold' - despite the fact that I absolutely love opalised fossils. Unfortunately, the project will mostly have to stay the same way until late May.. On the other hand, I might be able to fit in some time, during the winter vacation, to do a bit of work on that paper All the best, -Christian P.S. A lil' reminder as to why opalised fossils are so cool :
Hi everyone! Sorry it's been a long time I haven't posted anything, I was busy with many projects.. Now, for the good news!… I'm writing a paper!! It's an overview of the opalised fossils of Australia; I focus especially on the diverse reptile remains from Lightning Ridge, New South Wales. The paper is 25 pages approx., and intend on publishing it in Deposits Magazine, a popular geology review. Best wishes, Christian
