Magnificent. I really really need to get back up to Fort Peck and explore the dry land. I was always stuck doing water sampling up there.

I have heard (and will be involved in if it works out) that Denver has his eye on the Lance Fm next.  I can't wait  for that one.

Lance formation...upper cretaceous? Baculites and salamanders if I remember correctly?

Lance basically identical fauna to Hell Creek

That would be nice but not an easy task.

Very cool, I had to bust open a few books and web pages...can't figure out why there is something about salamanders in in my head with that formation.

I disagree.  The Lance has a lot more thick sandstone beds/lenses.  The mummy dinosaurs are found in this stuff which is why the Lance has a lot more mummies than the HC.

right, but Denver's paper is about stratigraphy.   (Thanks for posting it, by the way.)
