Kashmir Triassic Fossil Park soon to serve students across the world

Srinagar, Jun 12 (UNI) “Kashmir Triassic Fossil Park” will soon be set up at Khanmoh, about 13 km from here to serve the interests of students, scholars and scientists from all over the world.
However, the geologists from all over the world, specially from USA, UK, Ireland, China, Japan and Scotland, have been visiting this area for furthering their research studies
An official spokesman said here today that, Nadeem Qadri, Founder of the Nature University, and member of Environmental Policy Group (EPG), during a recent meeting with the Governor N N Vohra apprised him about the discovery of Triassic Fossils at Khanmoh, which is located about 13 kms away from Srinagar.
Mr Qadri briefed the Governor about his plans to promote an International Kashmir Triassic Fossil Park, as an Open Air University, with educational and recreational facilities, for serving the interests of students, scholars and scientists from all over the world.
He informed that Permian and Triassic formations are stratigraphically located in Kashmir and the massive bio extinction which occurred 252 million years back, in the geological times of Permian Triassic Era, is fully stored in a great rock system at a place called Guryul Ravine at Khanmoh near Pampore.
This area also has invaluable fossil wealth. Besides the plant fossil of Gangmopteris, Glossopteris leaves consist of Foraminifera, Byzones, Brachipodes, Conodantes, Bivalve, ammonids, pelecypd and Claria.
It is perhaps known only to the interested scientists that the first ever recorded Tsunami is well preserved in the layers of these rocks. Geologists from all over the world, specially from USA, UK, Ireland, China, Japan and Scotland, have been visiting this area for furthering their research studies.
The rear side of the ridge leads to the Dachigam National Park, which is a protected Wild Life Park for Kashmir Deer, locally known as the Hangul.
