Sisir's field trip to South Africa

Sisir's field trip to the Bushveld Complex, South Africa (2004)

As a postdoc of the AMNH I visited the Eastern Bushveld Complex with my supervisor Ed Mathez for field work and collected samples
for the UG2 chromitite project funded by the NSF. In addition, we mapped a section of the UG2 pyroxenite in underground mine.
