GEOG 1111, Fall 2011 TTH 2:00 pm class CAMPUS GEOMORPHOLOGY FIELD TRIP Instructor: Stan Hopkins Assigned: September 29, 2011 Due Date: October 13, 2011 or before Directions: This assignment involves a self-guided tour of several exhibits and points of interest in the Geography- Geology (GG) building, and around campus. Since the directions are geared toward starting on the third floor of the GG Bldg., I suggest that you start there. Otherwise, the directions may be a little confusing, but not incomprehensible. (60 pt total) (It should take you about 45 - 60 minutes to complete.) Place your answers on these sheets or on a separate sheet of paper. DO NOT WRITE, IN ANY WAY, ON ANY OF THE MAPS, POSTERS, OR OTHER DISPLAY ITEMS. I. Walk up the main stairs to the third floor of the GG building. At the head of the stairs you will encounter a large rock sample known as Athens Gneiss . Read the information about the sample of Athens gneiss. 01. What type of rock (sedimentary, igneous or metamorphic) is Athens (biotite) gneiss? II. To your right is a sample of rock that was collected from the Pennington Formation . This particular sample is sandstone - a common sedimentary rock type. Read through the description to determine when the sediment that comprises this rock was deposited. The texture that you see on the exposed surface of this rock is the fossilized burrows of small marine organisms. 02. During what PERIOD of geologic time was the sediment of the Pennington Formation formed? (Note: Use the geologic time scale found in your textbook or on the class website.) 03. What specific term applies to the preserved remains of the actual animals or plants? III. Turn around and go through the glass doors behind the stairwell. Immediately in front of you will be a large display case. The case contains examples of several minerals. Take a look at the mineral samples. The shapes are a function of the crystalline structure of the minerals. Look around in the case at some of the samples. 04. What is the chemical formula of the minerals
