Manchester, an M.S. in Geology from New Mexico Tech and a Ph.D. in Earth and
Planetary Sciences from the University of New Mexico. He has worked for almost
30 years at various institutions of higher education and museums.
Adrian first conducted fieldwork in the Late Cretaceous of
the San Juan Basin in 1980. Subsequently, he has published on the stratigraphy,
sedimentology, vertebrate paleontology, taphonomy and ichnology of the Fruitland
and Kirtland formations. With Spencer Lucas, he has named five of the
stratigraphic subdivisions of these units and two of their hadrosaurian
dinosaurs (Anasazisaurus and Naashoibitosaurus). Hunt has also published widely
on the vertebrate paleontology, ichnology and stratigraphy of the late Paleozoic
through late Mesozoic.
