Who Should Attend
Geologists and geophysicists interested in the role of preexisting passive margin configuration during inversion.
The aim of this field trip is the recognition of the key structural features of a fold and thrust belt detached on salt that has resulted from the inversion of a previous passive margin.
Transportation will be on a small bus assisted by minivans to have access to some of the outcrops.
Physical demand, equipment, and safety
This is an easy field trip with very easy and limited hikes to get to the outcrops. Outcrops will be from main sealed roads and a few mountain trails. Safety vests will be available to be used by everyone wherever required and asked to. There will be a First Aid Kit available in each car during fieldwork.
The climate during early November in the field area can be cold and rainy, although dry and sunny days may occur as well. The temperature for November in Pont de Suert can range between 30C and 150C. Participants should be prepared in case we should encounter bad weather and bring warm, waterproof clothes and suitable hiking boots.
