Monumental Discoveries at Dinosaur National Monument

Abstract:  Dinosaur National Monument was established in 1915 to protect and preserve the significant paleontological resources of the historic Late Jurassic Carnegie Quarry. The monument was expanded in 1938 and now protects 210,844 acres in northeastern Utah and northwestern Colorado. Dinosaur National Monument is situated on the eastern end of the Uinta Mountains, a broad anticline that formed during the Laramide Orogeny. The historic Carnegie Quarry was actively excavated from 1909 to 1922, with over 1,500 dinosaur bones still on display at the monument. A large diversity of work has taken place throughout monument's Mesozoic ecosystems, from studies of Triassic and Jurassic age trackways, to late Jurassic and early Cretaceous fossils, including the discovery of new species of lizards, frogs, salamanders, and dinosaurs. This talk will explore these notable discoveries and highlight future research directions.
