>Hi DEE ANN!

STUART ROBINSON, WHO I WORK WITH ON SEVERAL OTHER PROJECTS, MAY BE 
INTERESTED (AND MAY DO THE ANALYSES FOR FREE) - I'LL FORWARD THE 
MESSAGE TO HIM.

CHEERS,

JACKIE

>We have been working intensively in the Big Bend National Park 
>region of Texas on the Cenomanian-Santonian Boquillas Fm.  We would 
>like to know if anyone is interested in pursuing a project on the C 
>and O isotopes of this carbonate formation.  We have a number of 
>measured reference sections for the Ernst Member (lower) and San 
>Vicente Member (upper) of the Boquillas.  We have documented the 
>location of the Cenomanian/Turonian, Turonian/Coniacian and 
>Coniacian/Santonian Stage boundaries based on macrofossils.  In 
>addition, detailed mapping has been completed of the Boquillas 
>Formation encompassing approximately 100 square kilometers.  It 
>would be very beneficial to this ongoing project to be able to 
>reference stable isotope geochemistry.  Samples can be provided. 
>Cheers,
