A Field Trip to See a Cross Section of the Crust and Samples of the Mantle

This field experience begins in Sonoma County, a few hours north of San Francisco. It moves south along the coast and then cuts inland. The end of the trip is in the Mojave Desert, in southeastern California. Return to San Francisco takes 5 or 6 hours. The itinerary described here requires about two weeks and constant activity.

Most people will probably want to select only some of the many stops we describe in order to make their trip more manageable and more relaxed. This trip is appropriate for anyone with an interest in geology. A certain amount of background knowledge makes it much more meaningful.

So, it is most recommended for geology majors who have completed a standard geology curriculum through a mineralogy and petrology course. UND students that go on this trip are typically juniors and seniors, although there are sometimes a few sophomores. The overall goal of this trip is to show students many of the things that they have heard about in their geology classes, but have not had a chance to see in the field. California has it all, and the fantastic scenery on the coast and inland is enough to keep everyone excited and motivated.

The trip was originally designed by making a list of some of the most highly recommended field stops in California, and then putting them in context. It was later modified as UND students and professors began to do research on crustal and mantle xenoliths.

Subsequently, it was modified again to include only those places that are generally accessible during the early spring, with the possible exception of Yosemite National Park which can be iffy in the spring.

It is highly recommended that anyone going on this trip contact some of the geologists that have been referenced before going. Although directions are given, some of the stops and outcrops are not easily found. In other cases, private property concerns can be a problem. Finally, it is important to remember that there are lots of people in California.

If you plan to go to some of these places during peak season, be prepared for traffic and delays and be sure to make campground reservations ahead of time. Normally, not much follow up evaluation is done.

The assumption is that everyone who goes on the trips will benefit from the experience. All the material normally given to students is in the field trip guidebook Acrobat PDF 2. References are given so that material may be acquired. Your Account. Author Profile. Show Daily Itenerary. Here you will see various lithologies associated with ophiolites. Continue on to camp in one of the parks near Bodega Bay—Doran Beach is especially nice.

Start with a visit to the classic blueschist locality at Ward Cr. Return to campground for the night. Drive south 5 hours to a campground near Pinnacles National Monument.

The Pinnacles Campground on the east side of the monument is nice but expensive. Alternatively, rustic camping is free in the Clear Creek Rec. Area near the New Idria serpentinite—approach from the south. Be sure to drive Hwy 1 south of Bodega Bay all the way south, rather than going inland. Stop at Pt. Reyes along the way, if time permits.

Visit the serpentinite body at New Idria. Collect gemmy jadeite from veins. Late in the day, drive a bit farther south to the spectacular San Andreas Fault outcrops near Priest Valley.

Return to Pinnacles for the night. Visit the classic blueschist localities at Pacheco Pass and at Panoche Pass. In the evening, a two hour hike allows you to do a spectacular loop through Pinnacles National Monument.

Return to Pinnacles for night. Take the back roads to Carmel, then stop to see geology at Pt. Continue down the Big Sur coast, visit granulite outcrops along the coast highway and elephant seals at San Simeon. Then camp in one of the many state parks. Continue south with a brief stop at Morro Rock. San Luis has spectacular pillow basalts and a great seafood lunch on the dock. Near Palmdale there are some nice exposures of the San Andreas Fault in roadcut.

Arfrive in Joshua Tree N. Group campsites are nice but reserve ahead of time. Drive the Geology loop in J. In the afternoon, hike into the Wonderland of Rocks—check with rangers for directions to see spectacular weathered granite and other desert features. Spend night in J. Drive north from the park, stopping for a while at Deadman Lake and Dish Hill to see the classic xenolith sites.

These sites have mostly been picked over. Drive farther north into the Mojave Preserve and excellent camping at Hole in the Wall. A right turn east on any of several dirt tracks the one toward the Aiken Mine is best provides access to many cinder cones where unlimited quantities of xenoliths may be found. They range from granulite to ultramafic. Return to Hole in the Wall for the night. Show Suggestions for modification. The fieldtrip guide provided here is a summary of several trips to California that the UND Geology club has taken during the past few years.

They have all been combined to provide a comprehensive trip that includes much exciting geology. The stops involved provide a glimpse of most of the major rock types found in the Earth's crust and mantle, and also some good views of the San Andreas Fault.

At the start, the trip focuses on the Franciscan Terrane with visits to famous blueschist, eclogite and serpentinite occurrences. After that, the itinerary calls for driving down the California coast where granulites are seen, as well as pillow basalts and other supracrustals.

Then, the path moves inland to look at granites exposed in the Mojave Desert region, and also to visit volcanic areas where crustal and mantle xenoliths are found.

Mostrocks are interesting. Baylor, another geologist and lover of rocks, enriches the text. And best of all,. It may take your car a little.

There was only the burning and the hunger, and beneath them, the fear. She felt her heart pattering and pounding in her chest as her eyes darted about the road and across the hills.

 Пожалуйста, уделите мне одну минуту. Беккер отлично говорил по-французски, тем не менее обратился к этому человеку на языке, который тот, как он надеялся, должен был знать хуже. Убедить абсолютно незнакомого человека отдать вам золотое кольцо скорее всего будет весьма непросто, поэтому Беккер хотел заручиться хотя бы одним преимуществом. Пока старик собирался с мыслями, Беккер не произнес ни слова. Тот огляделся вокруг, указательным пальцем разгладил усы и наконец заговорил: - Что вам нужно? - Он произносил английские слова немного в нос. - Сэр, - начал Беккер чуть громче, словно обращаясь к глуховатому человеку, - я хотел бы задать вам несколько вопросов. Старик посмотрел на него с явным недоумением.

Меня зовут Северная Дакота. Нуматака подавил смешок. Все знали про Северную Дакоту. Танкадо рассказал о своем тайном партнере в печати. Это был разумный шаг - завести партнера: даже в Японии нравы делового сообщества не отличались особой чистотой. Энсей Танкадо не чувствовал себя в безопасности. Лишь один неверный шаг слишком уж настойчивой фирмы, и ключ будет опубликован, а в результате пострадают все фирмы программного обеспечения.

Он немного постоял, наслаждаясь ярким солнцем и тонким ароматом цветущих апельсиновых деревьев, а потом медленно зашагал к выходу на площадь. В этот момент рядом резко притормозил мини-автобус. Из него выпрыгнули двое мужчин, оба молодые, в военной форме. Они приближались к Беккеру с неумолимостью хорошо отлаженных механизмов. - Дэвид Беккер? - спросил один из .

 Итак, внизу у нас погибший Чатрукьян, - констатировал Стратмор.  - Если мы вызовем помощь, шифровалка превратится в цирк. - Так что же вы предлагаете? - спросила Сьюзан. Она хотела только одного - поскорее уйти.

Что тебя тревожит.

Подождите! - Сеньор Ролдан был коммерсантом до мозга костей. А вдруг это клиент. Новый клиент с севера. Он не допустит, чтобы какие-то страхи лишили его потенциального клиента. - Друг мой, - промурлыкал он в трубку.

Беккер держался центра башни, срезая углы и одним прыжком преодолевая сразу несколько ступенек, Халохот неуклонно двигался за. Еще несколько секунд - и все решит один-единственный выстрел. Даже если Беккер успеет спуститься вниз, ему все равно некуда бежать: Халохот выстрелит ему в спину, когда он будет пересекать Апельсиновый сад. Халохот переместился ближе к центру, чтобы двигаться быстрее, чувствуя, что уже настигает жертву: всякий раз, пробегая мимо очередного проема, он видел ее тень. Вниз.

Бринкерхофф почти физически ощущал, как интенсивно работают клеточки ее мозга. - Помнишь, что случилось в прошлом году, когда Стратмор занимался антисемитской террористической группой в Калифорнии? - напомнила. Бринкерхофф кивнул. Это было одним из крупнейших достижений Стратмора.

 Sientate! - услышал он крик водителя.  - Сядьте. Однако Беккер был слишком ошеломлен, чтобы понять смысл этих слов. - Sientate! - снова крикнул водитель.
