Imaging and the Fossils

With this title, Professor László Kordos gave his presentation to the workers of the Ipolytarnóc Fossils Nature Reserve.

The presentation, which can also be interpreted as a kind of consultation training, took place on July 11, 2023, in the information center of the Ancient Pine Visitor Center. Dr. László Kordos presented the results obtained by introducing the latest technological tools and 3D CT, using the examples of fossils from Rudabánya and Ipolytarnóc. With the help of high-technology, a non-destructive new chapter opens in the field of paleontological research.

The employees of the Bükk National Park Directorate (BNPD) and the TETT Foundation listened with great interest and then asked many questions. A video recording was also made of the event, which will be available for viewing by the BNPD's other regional employees.

Professor Kordos has been the head of paleontology research in the area since the 1970s. Based on the fossil tracks, he has so far shown the presence of nearly 40 vertebrate taxa in the Ipolytarnóc prehistoric habitat of Lower Miocene age, preserved 17 million years ago.
