Friday fold: 3D syncline in Macigno Formation

Posted by Callan Bentley

Alan Pitts is the source of today’s fold, a beautiful 3D model of a differentially-weathered sycline in the Late Oligocene to Early Miocene deep water Macigno Formation from western Tuscany, Italy. Here’s a photo:


Now for the 3D model, hosted by Sketchfab; After it loads, use your mouse to grab this thing and finesse it around.

What an outcrop! What a great 3D model! Thanks for sharing this, Alan!
