GEOS2190 – Structural and Field Geology changed its location in 2016!
Instead a mapping on km-scale in the Hill-End trough, we travelled to Potato Point and Mystery Bay in South Coast NSW. The objective was the mapping of bedding and younging in simply folded Ordovician turbidites of Potato Point to build a cross-section, and stereonet analysis. This exercise really pushes the idea that structure and stratigraphy must be worked out together in folded areas.
Then a short day at Mystery Bay introduced the notion that many areas have been folded several times. Next step, the multiply folded and metamorphosed meta-turbidites of Broken Hill.
My friend Stefan Vollgger from Monash Uni made the basemap used by the students with his UAV. It worked great. A 3D model is also available here: https://skfb.ly/ToHY Check it out!
