GEOL 4320/6320 Exercise _: A structural cross section|
At the request of your company, the Blockistani Ministry of Natural Resources has released for your examination the logs of nine more boreholes. The BMNR has also provided a map of the envisioned concession showing both its area and the Blockistani system of locating geographic features.
At the least, you should trace the tops in the Chancellor #1 Frett from well to well across your cross section. Doing so will lead you to find many of the important geological features. You may want to review the lecture on subsurface geology, both to review how to construct a cross-section and to see how geologists typically label geological features on cross sections. You also may find it useful to look at the figures of Bjørlykke's Chapter 12 to see some of the structural styles shown there.
The logs are available as both pdf and jpeg files:
The cross-section and report, which are required of all students on the Grads and Advanced Undergrads grading scheme (which is almost everyone), are due at the beginning of class on Thursday, October 20, 2011.
