New Page: "Paleozoic Era Fossils At Mazourka Canyon, California"


New member
Just recently, I uploaded my latest fossils-related page: Paleozoic Era Fossils At Mazourka Canyon, California. Includes detailed text of a cyber-field trip to the region. Also, numerous images of fossils and on-site photographs.

At the page, I describe the remarkable assemblage of Ordovician, Silurian, and early Devonian Period fossil specimens (approximately 485 to 415 million years old) present within the Mazourka Canyon geographic corridor (a major drainage tributary of the mountain range which guards the eastern side of Owens Valley, situated in immediate proximity to the eastern flanks of the Sierra Nevada)--a plentiful and surprisingly well-preserved accumulation of Paleozoic Era invertebrate animal remains that includes (but is not limited to, of course) brachiopods, bryozoans, corals, echinoderms, graptolites, and trilobites. Stratigraphically speaking, this is the westernmost outcropping of the same series of world-famous fossil-bearing rocks whose most classically representative correlative geologic time-equivalent exposures occur in the Great Basin wilds of central to eastern Nevada and western Utah, stretching hundreds of miles farther east.
