Fauna of Waulsortian Mounds part of Cutting Edge:Geoscience in the Field:Activities
This is a field trip to local exposures of potential waulsortian carbonate mud mounds. The students will prepare by reading 1-2 publications on the subject and then we will travel to see and collect samples from the mounds. This will help them learn to research, analyze, and come up with hypotheses for whether or not the mounds are classic waulsortian-type mounds.
