Keith Crouse Geosc 001 Sec. 10 Field Trip: Bald Eagle Formation near Potter’s Mills During this lab there were many things that needed to be observed and were seen. These included cross bedding, the different sedimentary structures, an approximation of grain size, and the composition, and grain shapes. The Bald Eagle formation contained a multitude of geologic information that helped to better inform myself and classmates about how the area used to be and the different events that shaped it into the present day form. One of the first observations made while at the Bald Eagle formation was the multitude of cross bedding that were present throughout the area. This could be seen by walking over to different areas along the strip and observing the veins and lines that ran through the different structures. Many of them moved from west to east along the ridge indicating that long ago sand in the form of sand dunes or some form of marine environment was present.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
