Geology Emeritus Professor Martin LockleyFor Decades Geology Emeritus Professor Martin Lockley has been studying the Dinosaur Ridge repository west of Denver, which is now facing encroachment from development. His team had recently discovered dinosaur "scrapes" at the ridge and at other sites in western Colorado, which he believed to be evidence of prehistoric foreplay. Lockley says by their sheer size and scope car dealerships proposed for a nearby site would have had the effect of diminishing access to the treasure trove of prehistoric fossils and tracks. Jefferson County commissioners agreed with him, and decided against allowing them to be built last month.
