Southwest Utah straddles the transition from the Colorado Plateau to the Basin and Range physiographic province. This transition also coincides with the leading edge of the Late Cretaceous to early Tertiary Sevier orogeny. A 3-D Geologic Map of the St. George 30x60 Quadrangle is used in Google to analyze overprinted compressional and extensional structures within an important geologic transition. Outcomes: Increase student ability to 1. describe the occurrence and geometric characteristics of structures. 2. gain experience reading geologic maps. 3. collect, analyze, and display quantitative structural data. 4. gather regional kinematic and dynamic information from structures. 5. Summarize findings in a scientific analysis 6. work with others to organize data, analyses, figures, and conclusions into a scientific report.
