About The Product

Published via the yank Geophysical Union as a part of the Field journey Guidebooks Series.

This box journey is meant to illustrate the foremost lithologic sequences and the most tectonic and metamorphic positive factors in a phase of the Blue Ridge geologic province in northwestern North Carolina and adjoining components of Tennessee and Virginia. a few of the box destinations selected for the six-day box journey emphasize geological features universal to a lot of the southern and significant Appalachians. many of the localities to be visited are within the Blue Ridge, with a few within the Valley and Ridge province to the northwest and the Brevard sector and internal Piedmont to the southeast. The journey presents an summary of the anatomy and evolution of terranes subjected to the subsequent tectonic episodes: past due Proterozoic rifting, the advance of oceanic lithosphere, the following closure of this ocean, and additional amendment via a number of episodes of Paleozoic deformation and metamorphism.
