The Virginia Geological Field Conference for 2020 goes virtual!


This year the COVID-19 pandemic has affected all of us. With social distancing measures still in place, we have decided to have the first virtual Virginia Geological Field Conference!

The Full Trip (all 6 stops, plus “drive by” bonus material)

Or if people prefer individual stops of more limited scope:

Stop 1, the Hanging Rock Anticline

Stop 2, a traverse of Devonian clastic sediments at Baker

Stop 3, the Wallbridge Unconformity

Stop 4, Silurian and Devonian carbonates at Patterson Creek Mountain Anticlinorium

Stop 5, the Devonian-Mississippian boundary

Stop 6, up on the Plateau
