Welcome and join us as we visit Honduras searching for the evidence that the break-up of the Pangaean supercontent in the Jurassic Period occured in this area. We will visit Danli, in SW Honduras where a nearly 1000 meter thick sequence of conglomerate and sandstone strata is the target of our trip. This mass of rock is the correct age and has the correct characteristics to have resulted from deposition of a large river flowing along the axis of a Jurassic-age valley between fault bounded mountains.
We are Dr. Rob Rogers, CSU Stanislaus geologist along with students Kait Barber and Chris Hammond. The flight leaves Wednesday night (Jan. 13th) and we will be posting updates along the way on our 2.5 week long trip.
