Presentation Transcript

  1. How to use this template(DELETE THIS SLIDE) • This is only a guide, you may add to this if you wish. • Do not add pictures as background, to hard to see and looks messy. • Less is more, don’t fill slides with words, add brief bullets and a picture or diagram. You should explain in your talk not have other read your slide. • Your presentation needs to be 5 minutes long so practice and be sure to hit all important points and discussions. • Be sure to cite everything that is not yours!!!

  2. Ordovician Carbonates in Northwest Lewis and Parts of Southeast Jefferson Counties Andrews, J Teacher Block 1

  3. Purpose Statement • Using field data collected personally and with other geologists from 2003 field season. • “Rework” the complicated naming system that is defined previously.

  4. Introduction • Collecting field data (via walking waterways) • Naming system used incorrectly. • Rocks in this area were formed underway and have fossils in the rocks. Harvard Geology department Titus 1986 and Isachsen 2000

  5. Methods • All researchers including myself walked rock outcrops where ever possible. • Measurements of the formations made with Jacobs Staff • All data recorded, faults, dipping layers and fauna

  6. Results • Rock layers were described by Johnsen(1971) and Walker (1973) based mainly on formation thickness and fauna. • Discuss results of methods of research • Any possible issues with the research?

  7. Discussion • Formational ID new • What are your conclusions from your research? • What are the results of this research? • Compare results to you purpose statement

  8. Trilobites Triarthrus Cryptolithus Prasopora Sowerbyella

  9. Brachiopods

  10. Conclusion • Work done by Kay (1930’s) was correct and properly cited, thus must be used (ACSN 1982). • Future research included mapping of faults for natural gas and the use of radiometric dating.
