Monday Geology Picture: A Student Field Map

Posted by Evelyn Mervine

A student field map made in Fall 2005.

One thing I loved about learning geology back in college was coloring. Yes, coloring… or colouring, for my South African and European friends. Most of the rough geologic maps I made for assignments back in college were made using colored pencils, such as the group map shown in this week’s Monday Geology Picture above. This map was made by a small group of students during a quick (3 or 4 day, if I remember correctly) mapping project in Montana. I won’t vouch for the map’s accuracy, but the coloring sure is pretty!
