A day in Burgundy, including Jurassic outcrops and possibly a visit to the Museum of Semur-en-Auxois (stratotypic town for the Sinemurian, Lower Jurassic).

Maximum capacity: 24 persons

Field trip #2 (September 5-8, 2010)

Four days in Jurassic and Cretaceous outcrops in Lyon and Digne-les-Bains areas.

The fieldtrip will tour some of the most famous ammonoid-bearing outcrops in France. The first day will be devoted to the "Lafarge - Belmont" quarry, near Lyon (200 km South of Dijon), and where everyone will find ammonoids and associated faunas (especially belemnites, bivalves, gastropods and maybe some shark or marine reptile remains) from the Toarcian and the Aalenian stages (Lower and Middle Jurassic). Then we will reach Digne les Bains (320 km South of Lyon). During the next three days, we shall visit some of the famous Jurassic and Cretaceous outcrops inside the reserve geologique de Haute-Provence, one of the 35 European Geoparks. This will also comprise the famous dalles ammonites from the Sinemurian stage (Lower Jurassic, no hammer for this last outcrop as it is a protected area!). A visit to the Museum of the reserve geologique de Haute-Provence will be organized.

Cost: 400 euros, that cover guidebook, transportation, picnic lunches, and lodging for the entire trip. We will be back at Dijon September 8 at night (accommodation for this night not included).

Maximum capacity: 24 persons
