About this Book
Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Field Trip Guidebooks Series, Volume 227.
Folded and faulted-rocks of Proterozoic through Permian age record both the sedimentary and tectonic evolution of the central Appalachian fold-and-thrust belt. This trip will focus on the styles of deformation in the major lithotectonic units that have been affected by the multiple accretionary and compressional phases of the Appalachian orogen.
