Samples from Austin: Stretched pebble conglomerate

Posted by Callan Bentley

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, my friend and colleague Pete Berquist snapped this image of a stretched pebble conglomerate in the structure teaching lab:


Some nice examples of pressure solution evidence in there – fused pebbles; strong clasts impinging on their weaker neighbors’ boundaries…

Thanks for sharing, Pete!
