Description:

Students use patterns observed on an outcrop geologic map and stereoplots to study the structures in this real, polyphase deformed and metamorphosed belt in the United Kingdom. There are at lest two, and perhaps three episodes of deformation recorded on this map. Students learn how to systematically analyze polyphase folds and complex mesoscopic fabrics by dividing the complexly folded map area into small simple fabrics domains. They also learn how to extract information from a map and stereonets and piece together the geologic history of a region that has experienced polyphase deformation.
