This year’s field trip will focus on the geology of the Southside Virginia Piedmont.  Yes, Virginia there are rocks exposed in the Southside Piedmont! The 2018 conference will highlight new geochemical, geochronological, and structural insights into the geologic history of terranes in the southeastern-most Piedmont including the Roanoke Rapids, Raleigh, and Carolina terranes.  The conference will be based out of Petersburg, and the field trip will venture as far south as Skippers, near the Virginia-North Carolina state line.

More information and registration details will be forthcoming in August.
