Senior field school in Cape Breton Island

Senior field school is now well under way in Cape Breton Island. Students have been busy wading streams, discovering the complex geology, and enjoying the perfect weather (so far!)

First day, first outcrop, on the lip at Limestone falls. What are we supposed to do here?

Getting into the swing of things - examining the huge gypsum outcrop on Goose Cove Brook. This outcrop has really grown over the years as the river has swept away the talus that used to bury the bottom 15 m of it. Now we can see a basal shear zone with duplex structures and S & C fabrics!

Lunch on Day 1 in Goose Cove Brook.
