Description

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Field Trip Guidebooks Series, Volume 161.

This book was designed to guide the participants in a 9 day field trip held in conjunction with the 1989 International Geological Congress. The trip is about equally divided among three areas: eastern Tennessee, western Virginia, and Maryland. The three parts of the guide (a part for each of the areas) have been prepared by K. R. Walker, J. Fred Read, and Lawrence A. Hardie. Many stop descriptions can be used independently. The text for some stops is a separate, self-contained article that stands alone. Other parts of the guide are more continuous, and less directly keyed to field stops.
