Friday Field Foto #102: Cross-bedded pebbly sandstone in Patagonia

January 29, 2010

This week’s Friday Field Foto is from the Magallanes Basin in Patagonia — an area from which I’ve shown lots of photos. However, this is not from the turbidite strata that I focused my work on; rather it is from the overlying shallow-marine and deltaic units.

I’ll post more about these rocks in the coming weeks — for now, just a taste.

Happy Friday!
