The Southeastern Geological Society (SEGS) will be hosting a field trip to examine the Geology of the Coastal Plain Unconformity (Fall Line) in southwestern Georgia and southeastern Alabama that is scheduled for November 6 and 7, 2015. We will travel through parts of southwestern Georgia and southeastern Alabama to examine the coastal plain unconformity, separating the GA-AL Piedmont terranes from Coastal Plain strata that is exposed in the Columbus region and separates Precambrian to Paleozoic rocks of the Uchee belt, Pine Mountain belt, Dadeville Complex, and Opelika Complex in the Piedmont from Late Cretaceous rocks of the Tuscaloosa Group/Formation at the northern extent of the Gulf-Atlantic Coastal Plain.
The trip will be limited to no more than 40 participants. Current SEGS members will be given first priority. If you are interested in attending this trip you must register no later than October 17, 2015. After October 17, the trip will be opened to non-SEGS member interested parties. This time of year is very busy for the area so reservations should be made as soon as possible. We look forward to seeing you on this trip.
