Do you want to understand #geomorphology & #structuralgeology at intensely deformed area near world's mightiest ranges?
If yes, then come to #gilgit.

We record this video somewhere b/w Passu & Gulmit with cloudy view of Cathedral Peaks or Passu Cones at Karakarum Highway.

This is the core of an anticline along the cliff walk near Ballycotton, Co. Cork. This fold has a few interesting features. The thick blocky layers are composed of samdstone. These layers are competant and can be seen to hold their thickness across the gold hinge. The greenish middle layer is composed of siltstone. Siltstone is incompetant and deforms much easier than the sandstone. It can be seen the thicken at the hinge an thin out along the limbs. This is known as flexural flow #Geology #Rocks #Folding #StructuralGeology #Cork

Boudinage or dyke emplacement inflation and collapse? #geology #geologyrocks #structuralgeology

For #thinsectionthursday we've got an impressive photomicrograph of crenulation cleavage in schist. Crenulation cleavage is a fabric in a rock that results from multiple phases of deformation, and forms by small-scale folding of pre-existing fabrics. It is sometimes referred to as 'microfolds' and can be clearly seen in the thin section. The image shown is in XPL and the field of view is just under 3mm. #tectonics #thinsections #deformation #structuralgeology

Beautiful strain indicators in beautiful billion year old gniess. #cwugeology #geology #fieldwork #idaho #metamorphic #gneiss #structuralgeology

Moving stuff out of my office and found this classic! If you claim to be a geologist and don't know about this book or the author, you shouldn't. #geology #structuralgeology #classic

Cross cutting relationships - correlating the deformation event active during granite emplacement. These folds in the host rock formed during regional crustal extension. As the crust thinned ductile deformation gave way to brittle structures. Here, one of these fractures has crosscut the pre-existing fold and has been occupied by a fine grained tourmaline granite sheet telling us that the granite was emplaced during a brittle extensional tectonic regime.

Does complex folding excite you? Are you a professional or budding structural geologist?

You should register for the Structural Geology and Tectonics Specialist Group bi-annual conference in Denmark, Western Australia!
Learn about cutting edge research. Discover new fields. Make new friends and renew old contacts. With a mid-conference field trip, you'll even get to see some new rocks! (Folds pictured are from the Pilbara and don't feature in the mid-conference field trip.) Register now! https://www.sgtsg.org/

that time i took hundreds upon hundreds of strike measurements of lineations in/around chestnut ridge park with my good friend darlene #geology #gelogist #structuralgeology #outdoors #fieldwork #fieldgeologist #datagathering #bruntoncompass #chestnutridgepark #chestnutridge #orchardparkny #ny #tbt #throwbackthursday

Our fearless leader, Dr. Ferré.
One of the most intelligent, compassionate, and fun professors ever.
Cheers!

Highly deformed Geological structure which is located in zagros suture zone hawraman area and the structure is recumbent fold which is in the horizontal plane with surface #geology #structuralgeology #trip

Warning: dips and strikes ahead!
A group of 3rd year @macquarieuni geology students on the Geos307 mapping trip to Weekeroo, SA. Two weeks with a great bunch of students on some really interesting rocks!
