Field Trip Stop 1-1 of Demko, et al., 2005.

This field trip stop is at the northern pinch-out of lacustrine sediments of Mesozoic Lake T'oo'dichi'. The sediments are found in the Brushy Basin member of the Morrison Formation (Upper Jurassic).

Literature Cited:
- Retallack, Gregory J., 2009.  

Near this location, just west of the highway are the paleosol collection site in the Morrison and Cedar Mountain Formations used by Retallack in his 2009 study of greenhouse crises of the past 300 million years. Retallack used stomatal index data for fossil Ginko and related leaves as a proxy for past CO2 spikes and paleosol chemical data as proxies for temperature and humidity changes. These data show that global warming due to CO2 rise is a not a unique event in earth history and that the magnitude of the coming anthropogenic greenhouse pales in comparison with past greenhouse spikes at times of global mass extinctions.
