The following is a series of videos produced by SJ Climate News that features interviews with Dr. Kenneth Lacovara, founding dean of the School of Earth & Environment at Rowan University. Dr. Lacovara, a paleontologist and geologist, is best known for his discovery of the dinosaur Dreadnoughtus, one of the largest dinosaurs ever discovered and which lived in South America during the Late Cretaceous period.
