Friday Field Foto #62: Folded strata in the Canadian Rockies
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to go on a field trip to see some Neoproterozoic turbidites in the Canadian Rockies (see this post). While the detailed sedimentologic and stratigraphic work is being done on a relatively undeformed section, the mountains in this region are chock full of folded and faulted strata. I thought this one was particularly spectacular.
Okay, all you structural geology geeks … what are we looking at? Give me some wildly comprehensive interpretations based on this one photo.
