Advances in Western Interior Late Cretaceous Paleontology and Geology


“Advances in Western Interior Late Cretaceous Paleontology and Geology”
May 22 - 23, 2009
Dixie Center, St. George, Utah
With Pre-and-Post-Meeting Field Trips


This meeting is being convened by Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument and partners to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Kaiparowits Basin Project, a collaborative effort focused on researching all aspects of the Late Cretaceous geology and paleontology of south-central Utah. The conference’s vision is to provide an opportunity for the Late Cretaceous research community and the public to exchange ideas and present findings of recent work in the Western Interior of North America. Utah themed papers presented will be considered for inclusion in a compendium volume on southern Utah’s Late Cretaceous Geology and Paleontology expected to be published in late 2010 by Indiana University Press. Abstracts are due by 5:00 pm MST February 2nd.

For schedules, registration, hotel information and to submit an abstract, please see the website.

The meeting follows the 8th Conference on Fossil Resources, May, 19-21, also to be held at the Dixie Center. For information on this meeting, please see their website.
