Southern Alberta Dinosaur Project 2011

July 25, 2011

We are just back from the summer field season in Alberta. This was the 8th consecutive field season of the Southern Alberta Dinosaur Project, which I have led with Dr. Michael Ryan from the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. We had one of our very best field seasons to date, we found several new ceratopsian specimens in the lower part of the Oldman Formation, and collected over 200 bones from the McPheeters Centrosaurus bonebed. We also located a number of new propsects for excavation next year. Thanks to all of the graduate students, techs, and volunteers for making this year such a success.

 

More detailed updates with photos from this year’s field season can be found on the ROM blog pages:
