Friday fold: two samples from Tennessee Tech

Posted by Callan Bentley

I spent some time in east central Tennessee last week, visiting the Earth Sciences department at Tennesee Technical University in their lovely newly-remodeled home on the main campus quad. In a hallway display case, they had many beautiful specimens on display to educate and inspire. Here are two lovely examples of folding.

Disharmonic buckle folding

Symmetrical kink folding (small chevron folds)

Terrific rocks to take us into a terrific weekend. Have a good one!
