MetadataShow full item record
Cone maturity is as follows- cone A, immature (picture 1); cone B, taphonomically degraded (picture 2); cone C, immature (picture 3); cone D, basal section (picture 4). A brown coprolite (> 100 microns) was identified in the matrix (picture 1), 32 small brown coprolites (> 25 microns) were identified in the matrix (picture 5).
DescriptionThese images were used in the research for a master's thesis from the Texas A&M University Dept. of Geology and Geophysics (Date of submission: May 2020).
Images were taken from unmounted peels of coal balls.
Cones A and C are immature cones.
Cone B is a degraded cone.
Cone D is a basal section.
33 brown coprolites were identified in the matrix.
Peels were made by Anne Raymond, the advisor for this thesis.
