New GigaPans from Team M.A.G.I.C. – hours of fun exploration
Posted by Callan Bentley
It’s been a long time since I’ve shared some of the work of our GigaPan making team. Here are some of the highlights from the last five months of work…
In the images below, see if you can find (a) ten thousand fusilinid forams excavated by Texas ants, (b) Devonian trace fossils in black shale, (c) resistant beds of graywacke in a vertical orientation, (d) gastropod-rich limestone sandwiched between redbeds, (e) Ediacaran fossils, (f) a Canadian “loonie,” (g) shear sense indicators in a metadiamictite, and (i) a vesicular sand grain from a Grecian beach.
In addition to the three students I supervise (Alan Pitts, Robin Rohrback, and Joshua Benton), images were also contributed by Aaron Barth (Oregon State University), Joshua Villalobos (El Paso Community College), and Jay Kaufman (University of Maryland).
