Steven M. Stanley from the University of Hawaii visited the Astrogeobiology Laboratory as a guest scientist between July 24 and August 4, 2017.
The visit included field work at localities in Denmark, Gotland, and Kinnekulle.
Steven M. Stanley is one of the world’s leading geologists with a rich and creative scientific production acknowledged with numerous awards, see e.g. the links:
The text books on earth system history by Steven have been an important source of inspiration for the research that we now pursue at the Astrogeobiology Laboratory.
On August 4, Steven gave a much appreciated informal seminar for a small, invited group. We received the perhaps final answer on a question that millions of people have asked: Why does T-rex have so short arms?
