On Sunday October 22nd Natures Talk Shows hosts,Ken Boorman and Ken McKeighen will be discussing one fascinating Wonder of Nature,Hurricanes.This year has seen quite a few category 4 and 5 hurricanes hit land and in some cases completely destroyed large areas. Let’s try and find out what causes these major hurricanes and hear safety tips during these events.

Paleontology – Ice Ages in Paleo History Part 2

Paleontology – Ice Ages in Paleo History Part 2
On Natures Talk Shows Fine Art of Paleontology Ken McKeighen and Ken Boorman will continue their discussion on the many ce Ages evidence in the fossil record. A further point to consider is this: ice ages are rare and irregular in the geological record. This suggests that there may well not be a single cause for ice ages. If there was a constantreason why ice ages happen, then they would be a permanent feature of the geological record, or at least occur as cyclic events; the fact that they are sporadic suggests that they had singular causes. The best we can do in investigating the causes of an ice age is to look at the events leading up to it and see which of these events might, in principle, be the cause of that particular ice age.

Fine Art of Paleontology-Chenoa Ellinghaus

 

Airing On Monday
October 23rd 2017

10:00 am eastern, 9:00 am central and 7:00 am pacific

On Monday October 23rd  Natures Talk Shows Fine art of Paleontology is pleased to welcome Chenoa Ellinghaus back to discuss all the things going on in her very interesting life. Chenoa is an inquisitive natural history illustrator from the greater Denver area, and creator of striking fossil reconstructions. Picking through paleontological data, like a detective, she strives to capture accuracy as well as a fresh approach to expressing the myriad of anatomical possibilities hidden within the evidence. With a BFA in Illustration from Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design, over nine years experience in the natural sciences, and a lifetime of fossil collecting, Chenoa approaches her work from artistic, biological, and geological angles. Her love for ancient life, starting in her youth, has evolved into a fascination and passion for the study of bizarre prehistoric invertebrates. Today, her artistic merits are channeled through her Paleoartist in Residence position at the Morrison Natural History Museum, bringing the past to the surface.

You can support Chenoas project by purchasing one of her Paleo Pals.Let’s find out why she loves doing what she does.Thank you Chenoa for returning!

On the Brink – Animals in Peril – Dwarf Cetaceans
On Natures Talk Shows On the Brink Animals in Peril our hosts will be discussing the beautiful and critically endangered Vaquitas & Yangtze Finless Porpoises.So very few remain are so we need to try and find the solutions to help them recover,if this option is not to late!!

Paleontology – Climate Change in the Fossil Record

Paleontology – Climate Change in the Fossil Record
On Natures Talk Shows Fine Art of Paleontology the hosts will be discussing evidence of what we are experiencing now in the fossil record. Through the thousands of years the earth has undergone many climate changes and evidence shows in fossil records.Climate change has occurred repeatedly throughout Earth?s history, but the recent rate of global warming far exceeds that of any previous episode in the past 10,000 years or longer. Knowing how climate change altered the interactions between plants and animals in the past may help us understand whether there are identifiable patterns that could give us clues into what will happen in the future.

Paleontology – Pennsylvanian of New Mexico

Paleontology – Pennsylvanian of New Mexico
On this episode of Natures Talk Show Fine Art of Paleontology, our hosts Ken McKeighen and Ken Boorman will be reviewing the Pennsylvanian fossil record of New Mexico.

Nearly 60 percent of New Mexico was covered with sediments deposited in the Pennsylvanian System as shallow seas and sediment-shedding uplifts rippled up and down an area where, formerly, nothing but ancient granite, schist and a few thin outcrops of Mississippian limestone baked in the Paleozoic sun. Basins sagged on the continental crust and made space for mud, sand, and gravel weathered and eroded from the Ancestral Rocky Mountains, which were now practically rotting in the heavy rainfall and tropical weather of the time. Exotic plants and insects thrived and coal swamps darkened the margins of the basins. In times when sea level stood high, the warm seas clarified and marine organisms multiplied, secreting lime and leaving hard parts. Limestone is particularly abundant in the shallow marine shelves that surrounded the basins in New Mexico.
