Great Divide Basin


The Great Divide Basin (GDB) Project collects and studies mammalian fossils across the Paleocene-Eocene boundary (ca. 55 mya) in southern Wyoming. In addition, we apply tools and techniques from the geographic information sciences (e.g., satellite imagery, drones, photogrammetry, and LiDAR) to generate predictive models for the location of fossil localities.

The project is led by Dr. Robert Anemone of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Core team members include remote sensing specialist Jay Emerson, biological anthropologist Brett Nachman, geologist Ron Watkins and vertebrate paleontologist Michele Stocker. Photo credit: David Wilson

The data in the Great Divide Basin are currently restricted to project members.
