Friday fold: anticline in Belgium
Reader Eric Fulmer contributed this week’s Friday fold. It’s a beauty! Eric writes that this outcrop is from “the Belgian Ardennes near Durbuy. There’s a well-exposed anticline along the Ourthe River. The stone is late-Devonian limestone typical of the immediate area that was later deformed regionally due to the Variscan orogeny. The Ardennes are classic fold-and-thrust belt, much like our Valley-and-Ridge province.” Very cool indeed. Thanks for sharing, Eric!
