Friday Field Foto #2: Shallow-marine strata

October 27, 2006

Sierra Dorotea, near town of Puerto Natales, Chile (© 2006

This week, another photo from southern Chile. This is a ridge called Sierra Dorotea very close to the town of Puerto Natales. We climbed up this on the very last day of our field season last March. These rocks are shallow marine and deltaic deposits of the Dorotea Formation (~60-65 million years old). More photos of Chile are here.
