Opening night for Bell Island Rosselia

on . Posted in Latest News


On Saturday we have the premiere of the first reconstructions of our Rosselia-like material from Bell Island.  Michelle Thoms is going to be presenting her preliminary 3D reconstructions of the Bell Island Rosselia from the Grebes Nest Point Formation at the AUGC conference here in Memorial University. 

During her undergraduate Honours research project Michelle performed serial grinding, with photographic data collection, and ultimately 3D tomographic reconstruction.  Her results are quite surprising, and give us some completely new insights into behaviours associated with Rosselia.   We are hoping that this work will find its way into print in the near future.  Michelle is in the final year of her undergraduate program and is off to a position in the petroleum industry in the new year, and this will be her first proper public presentation.

Good luck Michelle!
