Patagonian geology from the air
I’m now down in Chilean Patagonia and will be for the next five weeks doing some geological field work. I’m going to try and post a bunch while down here — wi-fi willing — so be forewarned that these posts will be short and probably contain typos and sloppy errors. It’s either that or no posts :)
I took the above photo a few hours ago from the flight from Santiago to Punta Arenas. It’s always fun to see the geology you’ll be working on from the air before or after. We won’t be going to this particular place, well probably not, but will be going to some outcrops just outside this photo.
I forgot to mention — the outcrops in upper left of this photo, the more buff-colored stuff, is the locale from the previous Friday Field Photo: https://clasticdetritus.com/2012/02/03/friday-field-photo-166-thin-bedded-turbidites/
