Friday Field Foto #89: Triassic sandstones in Brooklyn, NY
Hey, wait … this photo isn’t from the field … it’s of a building in an urban area! Well, it might not be the ‘field’ that we all think of — that is, rocks in their natural habitat — but they are still rocks and they still have a geological story to tell.
This week’s Friday Field Foto is designed mostly as an announcement for a special event next week. Monday I will post a brief review of the book Stories in Stone: Travels Through Urban Geology. Tuesday, I will have David B. Williams, the author of Stories in Stone, here on Clastic Detritus for a Q&A, which will include David taking questions from the comment thread.
David’s stop here on Clastic Detritus is part of the Stories in Stone ‘virtual book tour’ — I will post the full schedule of his ‘tour’ next week.
So, what’s the geological story of the brownish sandstones in these buildings? Check back Monday to find out!
