Ongoing Research Projects - The Quaternary (all listings)
Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History: On the campus of the University of Oklahoma in Norman. One of the finest university-based museums in the nation, with an active Paleontology research program and extensive collections.
Database of the Former British Petroleum Microfossil Collection at the NHM, London: In 1991 BP donated to The Natural History Museum their Micropalaeontological Collection. This collection has an extensive geographical and stratigraphic coverage and is a record of BP’s exploration activity since the 1950s.
The database hold details of material from over 3,500 individual well runs. The collection includes micropalaeontological assemblage slides and residues; palynological slides and residues and nannofossil slides from wells and outcrop from over 120 countries world-wide.
The Former Aberystwyth Microfossil Collection: This on-line catalogue is designed for university academics and industrial micropalaeontologists who are interested in post Palaeozoic ostracods and foraminifera. Searching this database gives broad information about discrete collections within the Former Aberystwyth University Micropalaeontology Collection that is now housed at the NHM.
Late Pleistocene Vertebrates of the El Paso Region: Contains a checklist of the Late Pleistocene fauna (mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and birds) from the Chihuahuan Desert of southern Texas.
Wade E. Miller PaleoProfile: Miller is Professor of Geology and Paleontology at BYU, and does field research in central Mexico.
Big Sioux River: Descriptions, photos and maps showing the Big Sioux River geology, origin, flora and fauna, with emphasis on Sioux Quartzite formations.
Ice Age Paleontology of Southeast Alaska: This site discusses research by Timothy H. Heaton of the University of South Dakota, which aims to establish a complete chronology of mammals, birds, and fish living in Southeast Alaska before, during, and following the Last Glacial Maximum, and up to the present day.
Fossil Bats of the Americas: This site provides information about the Cenozoic fossil record of bats in North America, South America, and the West Indies. The research emphasis is on the late Cenozoic era, mostly the mid-late Tertiary period, with Quaternary records only for extinct genera and species.
Foraminifera illustrated catalog: Foraminifera illustrated catalog by genus, locality and geological time
