Plesiosaur Update!

Dr. Storrs, William and Sharon worked the Plesiosaur site this week. The black shale that houses the skeleton is very dense and is the same color as the bones. A large, clear sheet of plastic has been laid over the site and each bone will be outlined and numbered to map their location. Removal of the bones has also started, large sections will soon need field jackets.Today, a professor from the University of Houston visited Mother's Day to evaluate the sediment for future ground penetrating radar analysis! This will occur after we close the site for the season and if it works, it would be a tremendous help in locating bones in the coming years. Fingers crossed!!!
