Research is an exploration. One never knows what will be found. Kevin is traveling to Poland this semester on a research sabbatical. There are we hope scientific discoveries to be made, but also encounters in an unfamiliar culture to pehaps be recounted when there is time. Kevin research speciaty are the silicoflagellates (“silicos”), single celled plants that float in ocean waters, which he has been studying since 1984. For information on silicoflagellates, see Kevin’s silico page. The principle focus of Kevin’s exploration are sediments from the Cretaceous (Age of Dinosaurs), but there are other potential projects as well. This blog will document Kevin’s research journey into the Cretaceous and around Poland.
