While at the University of Texas at Austin, where the Jackson School of Geosciences was hosting the Summit on the Future of Geoscience Education this past weekend, I was very impressed with the backdrop behind the main desk at the student center. It showed lovely meso- and macro- scale folds, and exquisite boudinage.
I never found out the source or story behind this rock, but it’s certainly lovely. I’m sure the UT-Austin geoscience students find it inspirational!
