2011 MSU Marquette Stucture/Geology Fieldtrip

As part of the annual structure/plate tectonics course offered through the Department of Geological Sciences at Michigan State University, faculty, graduate students, and 18 undergraduate students are conducting geologic mapping and geologic analyses on ancient Precambrian rocks exposed in the Marquette Range of northern Michigan. 

Over the course of the next few days, follow along as faculty and students explore and learn about some of the oldest and more enigmatic and unique geologic formations in North America.
