Description:

This virtual field trip takes students to view an anticline, a large fold in the rocks, near the Virgin River in southwestern Utah. Photos, diagrams, and aerial imagery of the feature, accompanied by written narrative and thought questions for students, explain how anticlines form and how they can be detected by investigating the surface geology. There is also a brief description of how they can act as trapping structures for the accumulation of petroleum.
