and we took out a new field assistant to help us map the outcrop!
Kelly is a great pilot and took some great shots of the rocks!
Droning aside, this is a pretty awesome reef! There were lots of great corals...
Sometimes there are even corals and rudists together!
Kelly will also be tackling this very interesting facies with algae/microbes/stromatolites, corals, and carbonate sediments! Microdigitate stromatolites on a coral!
In addition, there were some textbook borings in one of the corals!
We also found a couple of nice ammonites...
...and some forams.
And some gratuitous shots of the area because it was very pretty (although I could do with 50% less spiky plants!)
