Geology students visit ancient seas

This April, students from Tari Mattox’s Historical Geology class traveled to visit two different seas. Being historical geology students, the seas they explored existed a million years ago. Rocks exposed in Southern Indiana record a time when the North American Continent was repeatedly covered by shallow inland seas. On the geology field trip to this area, students described and collected fossilized remains of marine organisms that lived in these seas. It was a wonderful opportunity for GRCC students to study the fossil record and to see rocks “in their native habitat!”
