The main objective of this course is to show how tectonic and hydrologic systems can be studied in the field by observations and interpretations.
This is a Spotlight Course of the Week (Expires: 4/23/2021)
This course demonstrates how tectonic and hydrologic systems have shaped our landscapes of today. Based on my field study observations and interpretations, this course attempts to recreate the petrogenesis of The Cobbles outcrop over the last 600 million years.
Petrogenesis is the branch of study under petrology that covers a rocks origin and its past. The Cobbles outcrop is part of the Cheshire quartzite formation. Formation names include two key pieces of information: location and principal rock unit. Cheshire quartzite, describes its location in Cheshire, MA; and describes its dominant rock unit ‒ quartzite.
