After a long hiatus due to general craziness at work and at home, I am starting up the blog again with this call for a cool geology sign. The Ross Sandstone is a upper Carboniferous (Pennsylvanian) formation along the coast in western Ireland that is famous for its excellent turbidite channel and lobe exposures. See this page for more details. If you haven’t got the chance to go see those rocks and the beautiful countryside of the Emerald Isle, I highly suggest a trip.
In fact I will be there next week teaching a field trip, so maybe I will do a little day-by-day blogging about the rocks there. Stay tuned!
