We’ve had a lot of time off from work and school this week thanks to a late-winter snowstorm.
There have been some fun examples of post-snowfall deformation that resulted. Here’s one from my kid’s playground slide:
I posted this on Twitter the other day because it reminded me so much of a detachment fault, a big slab of snow detaching and sliding downhill under the influence of gravity. I like the little tear faults along the edges, too.
Brian wrote this one up on his (now hibernating) blog:
Snow is so great — not only for getting unexpected days off from work, but also for these serendipitous analogue deformation experiments.
Have a happy Friday all!
