UNG faculty and students search for fossils and data on Georgia's coast
2018 Aug 14
University of North Georgia (UNG) faculty members David and Jessica Patterson, alumna Kayla Allen, and twelve undergraduates searched for late Pleistocene-aged fossils by digging holes adjacent to a water canal in Brunswick, Georgia.
Funded through a UNG Presidential Incentive Award, the trip in late May and early June yielded a few marine fossils such as stingray teeth and small bone fragments, which were sent to Georgia College & State University (GCSU). GCSU wil house the fossils, and its students will collaborate with UNG students to create a Coastal Georgia Fossil Database, which will feature new and existing fossil collections.
