GigaPan w/Canon SD850


Outcrop of the Higganum Dike along Rt. 9 near Higganum, CT.

This particular structure is a diabase dike intruding metamorphic rocks - this is part of the "feeder" system for some of the Mesozoic basalt flows in southern New England.

We were here as part of a field trip with CCSU students in both the structural geology and field methods classes - they're here to examine the outcrop, possibly measure any joints or faults they find, and to record their observations for future assignments.

(The vests make the students easier to spot for oncoming traffic... helps in the photo, too!)
