Outcrop Mapping at Woodall Shoals, South Carolina-Georgia part of Cutting Edge:Geoscience in the Field:Activities
Students work in groups of 3 or 4 to map relatively small parts of the outcrop at Woodall Shoals, which serves as a model of a complexly deformed high-grade metamorphic terrain. With the benefits of 100% exposure and a relatively small area, this provides a good introduction to mapping metamorphic rocks and associated structures.
