It’s time for #FossilFriday ! Have you ever seen Gastornis gigantea in the Museum’s Hall of Saurischian Dinosaurs? It lived in the Eocene, some 55 million years ago. This giant ground bird likely stood more than 6 ft (1.8 m) tall & weighed over 330 lbs (150 kg)!

@bobkopp  @RutgersEOAS  " @ScienceAdvancesConundrum  " almost seems an understatement describing the mystery of estimated sea-level behavior in a time without ice! "Large (>25 m), rapid (<1 Ma) sea-level changes during the Early Eocene pose a conundrum " Thoughts??

Microscopic images of ~55-million-year old pollen grains and spores uncovered in Maryland. These plant groups indicate that climates were warmer and wetter in the mid-Atlantic region during a global warming event known as the eocene-eocene thermal maximum'>Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM). #FossilFriday

WOW! Would you check out the state of preservation on this crab fossil! ? It lived in the Eocene, between 56 to 33.9 million years ago. It was found at the Monte Bolga lagerstätte, a site of fossils so incredible that even the organs are sometimes preserved! ​ ​?: @calacademy

"A world of searing heat and melted ice caps": Climate model of Early Eocene is "scary finding" for Earth's future

Comment on “Revised paleoaltimetry data show low Tibetan Plateau elevation during the Eocene”. We contend that their conclusions are flawed as the result of a number of failings of both the modeling and the data comparison. cc @nchazarra  #Naukas19

Without rapidly reducing emissions, we’ll quickly go back to a climate similar to the Pliocene or Eocene — about 3 million and 56 million years ago, respectively. Both would have hellish consequences and likely reshape human civilization permanently.

Last night a high school student thanked me for making a video about the eocene-eocene thermal maximum'>Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum, saying it helped her win an argument at a debate tournament on the topic of climate change. Her mom said they had talked about the PETM for weeks. I almost cried

A #FossilFriday  from Colorado in the form of a 34 million year old wasp of the genus Palaeovespa. The Florissant Formation where it was found is famed for its exceptional fossils of insects and plants dating to the Eocene.
