Friday Field Foto #89: Triassic sandstones in Brooklyn, NY

August 14, 2009

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!

    Very cool twist on field photos – and am looking forward to the review and interview.
