GigaPan w/Canon SD850


More of the Hebron Gneiss (Gillette Castle State Park, CT).

A lovely outcrop that is full of abused rocks - some form boudins (stretched crystals), others more deformed ("sigma structures", where the crystals are stretched into almost 's' shapes by the forces altering the rock), and others simply melted under the stress (see the snapshot "pseudo-tachylytes").

More info on the geology of the park can be found at www.ct.gov/dep/cwp/view.asp?a=2716&q=325132&depNav_GID=1650 Will open in a new tab or window
I was here with a group of geology students from CCSU learning how to measure and record the stresses that formed these rocks. You can see some of the other places we stopped at gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=11171, and gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=11168
