Friday fold: Franciscan chert in Golden Gate Park

Posted by Callan Bentley

This week, the Friday fold comes to us courtesy of fellow AGU-hosted geoblogger Jessica Ball:

That’s chert cropping out in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco. Maybe you should check it out in December when you’re in the Bay area for the AGU Fall Meeting?

Outcrop location: Lat/Long: 37.771517,-122.4777. Annotated version:

Recall there are more chert folds from the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge featured here.

Thanks for sharing, Jess!

Happy Friday, everyone.
