First report on Colorado Plateau Coring Project workshop

Bill Parker ('Chinleana' blog) is just back from the Colorado Plateau Coring Project Workshop in Albuquerque with a short post and good links.

The project proposes to "core Triassic and Jurassic rocks of the Colorado Plateau [right, credit CPCP] to obtain detailed stratigraphic data including paleomagnetism, palynology, isotopic dates, etc..."

I hope we'll hear more about the results and plans for the project soon.

  1. More info is what I crave and this area dealing with plates and floating mounds is critical to all our understanding of tectonics and the earths formation.
    When do you start and what is your drilling time line?
