Update to the Precambrian-Cambrian Explosion of Marine Organisms: The Latest Fossil and Geologic Data from Virginia
By Dr. William F. Schmachtenberg, SL: Dae Miami
Virginia contains excellent exposures of Late Precambrian and Early Cambrian rocks and fossils. In this talk, I will share pictures of those rocks and fossils and possible theories that can explain the explosion of life in the oceans during the Early Cambrian. There will also be pretty touristy landscape pictures for Chantal and others who love the mountains of Virginia! If time permits I would also like to discuss Perseverance rovers search for life on Mars and why Virginia may be a model for the search for life on Mars. So a little bit of something for everyone!
