For this week’s “Monday Geology Picture” post I thought I would share a few teaser pictures from the field trip I attended last week as part of the LASI V workshop on the physical volcanology of laccoliths, sills, and dykes. For the field trip, we spent three days exploring and learning about subvolcanic systems that are exposed in South Africa’s Karoo region. We stayed just outside of the town of Queenstown and went on field trips in the area. In future posts I’ll be writing in detail about the geology that we saw on the field trip. In fact, I’m spending some time working on my first proper LASI V post this evening. You can expect it later this week. For now, enjoy these teaser pictures!
