The Accretionary Wedge: Favorite Field Site

December 9, 2008

This week is turning out to be one of the busiest weeks I’ve experienced in a while — so, I’m going to be super-lame and recycle an old post for the latest Accretionary Wedge geoscience blog carnival. It’s being hosted by DaveS over at the Geology News blog — check it out.

This month’s theme is “favorite places to do field work”. Although I talk about Patagonia a lot on this blog … probably seems like every other post to you guys … it is because it truly is a magnificent place. I have now spent more combined weeks doing field work there than anywhere else on the planet.

So, instead of just copying in the whole post here, you can simply click here to read about the site where I did a large component of my Ph.D. research. After that, check out this post, which summarizes a recently published paper about the study.

If I had more time with this, I would love to highlight some of my other favorites areas — Utah, west TexasCanadian Rockies, and, of course, California.
