Research Proposals and Reports

Every group wishing to work in the area supervised by the Hanson Research Staion must submit a formal proposal to the Hanson Research Station which is reviewed carefully and approved before any on-site research is undertaken. These proposals must be specific and generally can range from one to four years in duration.

As part of its responsibility for the privilege of being permitted to engage in field work at the Dinosaur Project site, the research directors of the project are required to make periodic Research Reports to the Hanson Research Station summarizing each year's work.


These Proposals and Research Reports are available in PDF form. To access and read them you will need software such as Adobe Reader™ installed on your computer.
There is restricted access to the Proposals and Reports. You will need a user name and password to access them. Contact the Project Director for this access information.
