woodshole_ocean Seafloor sediments are full of tiny shells like these, the remains of single-celled ocean organisms that lived, died, and sank to the ocean bottom, building up in layers over the ages. The fossil shells (seen under a microscope) contain chemical clues to the ocean temperature and atmospheric chemistry in the location and time that the organisms lived. Former MIT-WHOI Joint Program graduate student Fern Gibbons studied the shells to learn about patterns of monsoons in the Indian Ocean during thousands of years, part of WHOI research on past ocean climate.

Это аммолит,- ископаемый перламутр, остатки перламутрового слоя раковин вымерших ныне моллюсков - #аммонит ов. Аммолит с 80-ых годов 20 века внесен в списки драгоценных камней органического происхождения вместе с жемчугом, янтарем, кораллом. Аммолит такого качества найден пока только в одной точке мира, - в канадской провинции #Альберта , где он и добывается с конца 20 века.

Состоит из карбоната кальция (арагонит) с примесями. Чем больше в куске цветов и больше иризации (радужное сияние), тем выше качество. Чудесная штука!

quinnproperties Every answer or solution should create multiple new questions. Never stop wondering how and why. "How" and "why" should be celebrated. This thought provoking quote is printed on the wall of the incredible fossil collection at Utah Museum of Natural History. #utah #universityofutah #utahmuseumofnaturalhistory #fossils #dinosaurs #sljuniorleague #scienceeducation #geology #wilmotbradley #wilmithbradley 1h

quinnproperties Try this foot on for size. I'm not sure Vans make a pair of shoes large enough for this massive dinosaur foot.
