Mickle, Committee Chair Thomas Wentworth, Committee Co-Chair Elisabeth Wheeler, Committee Member Jenny Xiang, Committee Member Marianne Feaver, Committee Member Sediments from the Late Cretaceous Tar Heel Formation in the Atlantic Coastal Plain of North Carolina were investigated for occurrence and distribution of palynomorphs.
Quantitative analysis is consistent with the long-standing hypothesis of diversification and dominance of angiosperm pollen groups during the Campanian.
The palynological record of the Tar Heel Formation, based on some indicator taxa with modern equivalents, suggests that subtropical to warm, moist temperate conditions prevailed in the southeastern region of North America during Campanian time.
Representatives of the Normapolles pollen group (characteristic angiosperm pollen group of middle and high northern latitudes of eastern North America and Europe) occur throughout the Tar Heel Formation and collectively comprise 29%-54% of the angiosperm assemblages.
Palynological age assessment is in concordance with earlier dating determined by other workers based on invertebrate faunas.
They laugh when they learn that I ate corn on the cob in a high chair at James Taylor’s house, lost my first tooth at the Carolina Coffee Shop, and enjoyed my first date at the window table at Spanky’s the summer Star Wars debuted.
They understand “born, bred, dead,” the fast comeback of any Tar Heel whose loyalties are prodded.
Minimum variance cluster analysis in the R-mode (clustering of taxa) indicates the association of Campanian taxa in the same cluster.The Tar Heel 10 Miler is designed to celebrate YOU and showcase downtown Chapel Hill, the UNC campus and the surrounding historic neighborhoods.A true Carolina showcase with thousands of UNC alumni crossing the finish line each year.We’re proud to partner with these great brands to bring you an incredible event experience.Whether you’re drenched in sweat, dressed in costume or immersed in music, you've worked hard to get there and deserve to have the best time possible.
