The unprecedented cold, snowy waves that swept across different parts of the globe during the winter of 2021-2022 cannot be attributed to the climatic changes that the world is currently witnessing.. Rather, its cause is due to the thousands of tons of sulfur gases that were emitted from the ground volcano Cumbre Vieja on the Spanish island of La P...

A thorough examination of composite volcanoes (stratovolcanoes) on the Martian surface by satellite remote sensing (via Google Mars) has revealed that these volcanoes are rarely occurring independently but frequently occurring as parasitic landforms which were re-erupted at the bottom floor of larger collapse calderas after re-filling of the magma...

A thorough examination of 300 craters on the Martian surface by satellite remote sensing (via Google Mars) has revealed that these craters which previously assumed to have been formed by meteorites are actually volcanic craters which were formed at the ground surface around a volcanic vent by lava flow or fragments of lava thrown out during eruptio...

Project - TU Vienna
Question
This is not a project. It is a title of a book edited by me (Khaled Ouda) in collaboration with Marie-Pierre Aubry, and which is already published in Micropaleontology Volume 49, 2003. It is listed in the contribution list of Khaled Abdel-Kader Ouda at the Research Gate. The name Kevin Ouda who posted this project on my page is neither editor nor a writer among writers inside the book. He looks a liar and a fraudster. It seems as a trial from this person to steal the research. I appeal to the management of the research gate to stop this tampering and to verify every research added to the pages of scientists registered in the gate.

The Late Cretaceous is a time of critical importance for our understanding of vertebrate evolution because it marked the final phase of non-avian dinosaur evolution, and was likely the interval during which the last common ancestor of all living placental mammals appeared. This was also a time period during which continental drift and rising sea levels isolated most of the major landmasses, and the unique patterns of faunal cosmopolitanism or endemism created by these forces provide data that may help to inform the pattern and timing of continental breakup and collision. Vertebrate paleontological reconnaissance in the Western Desert of Egypt was initiated in 2008. This project aims to recover vertebrate fossils from the Late Cretaceous exposures around the Dakhla, Kharga and Bahariya Oases. Recovery of archosaurs and mammals from this area would help to fill in a major gap in Africa's record of vertebrate evolution, which is very poorly documented from the Turonian to the late Paleocene. A substantial collection of dinosaurs, crocodyliforms, turtles, lungfish, and teleosts was recovered on this expedition, and these fossils have been deposited at Mansoura University Vertebrate Paleontology Center.
