Description:

After learning how to plot planes, lines, and poles on stereonets, how to describe folds, and what simple fabrics are (see attached file), students analyze the simple fabrics of this real region using the rich data that are plotted on a beautiful outcrop geologic map. In the analysis, they compare the geometry of large- and small-scale structures using step-by-step instructions and multiple stereonet analyses, draw an accurate cross-section using data from the stereonets, and work out a sequence of events and geologic history.
