‘Dinosaurs Under the Aurora’ presented by Roland A. Gangloff
Thursday, Aug. 16, 5:30-7:30 p.m.
UAA/APU Consortium Library, Room 307
Long before the North Slope of Alaska was being exploited for its petroleum resources, it was a place where dinosaurs roamed. ‘Dinosaurs under the Aurora’ immerses readers in the challenges, stark beauty and hard-earned rewards of conducting paleontological field work in the Arctic. Roland A. Gangloff recounts the significant discoveries of field and museum research on Arctic dinosaurs, most notably of the last 25 years when the remarkable record of dinosaurs from Alaska was compiled.
Roland A. Gangloff is emeritus associate professor of geology and geophysics at UAF and former curator of Earth Science at the University of Alaska Museum of the North. He is presently a visiting scholar at the University of California Museum of Paleontology.
This event is free and open to the public. There will also be free parking in the South Lot (the lot just across from the bookstore) for it.
