The Western Interior Seaway Revisited
Session Type:
Scientific Categories:
Paleoclimatology/Paleoceanography, Paleontology, Biogeography/Biostratigraphy, Structural Geology
Paleontological Society GSA Sedimentary Geology Division
Many aspects of the Western Interior Seaway are always under continuous study by a diverse group of professionals. This session is proposed as a continuation and expansion of the exchange of information such professionals in this work that began with a GSA 2008 Houston topical session.
Sponsor Acknowledgement:
Tentative List of Speakers:
Jan Smit, Peter Harries, Peg Yacobucci
This session is intended as a continuation of "The Western Interior Seaway" session held at GSA 2008. Ideally, previous presenters will be joined by others also working in any aspect of this important topic.
Memo or Comment for Technical Program Chair:
I think the title should allude to the previous session and "revisited" might not be the best option. I was also was behind on deadlines and will be contacting the Paleontological Society, guest speakers and the GSA Sedimentary Geology Division today.
