The GLY 4544 Sedimentation & Stratigraphy class took a 3-day field trip to Alabama and eastern Tennessee, with the first stops in the gulf coastal plain of Alabama to look at well-developed Eocene to Pliocene soils and unconsolidated marine sediments. Afterwards, the group spent the rest of the trip in the Valley and Ridge province of the southern Appalachian Mountains in northern Alabama and eastern Tennessee to look at some fabulously exposed middle Cambrian through early Silurian sedimentary rocks deposited in ancient marine and terrestrial environments.
