Monday Geology Picture: Nooitgedacht Glacial Pavement

Posted by Evelyn Mervine

Sitting on top of the glacial pavement.

Today I’m continuing with my recent theme of blogging about glacial pavements, and I’m sharing a picture of me sitting on top of a glacial pavement at Nooitgedacht, which is near the town of Kimberley in South Africa. I’ll share more pictures and information about this pavement soon. For now, however, you can read a little about the pavement on Wikipedia here. Although this pavement is located about 700 km away from the pavement at Oorlogskloof (which I blogged about recently), it was carved by the same 300 million year old Dwyka glaciation!
