Field Trip to Enfield Glen, NY Finger Lakes Region part of Cutting Edge:Geoscience in the Field:Activities
This is a 2.5 hour field trip in which students search through strata of the Upper Devonian Catskill Delta for paleocurrent indicators that allow them to infer paleogeographic differences between Devonian and modern time. Through measurement of paleocurrent indicators, joint surfaces, and observation of local landforms, students construct the paleogeographic history of the NY Finger Lakes region.
