Buffalo Geological Society Meeting-Heather McCarthy – November 3, 2017- Buffalo, NY

The  Buffalo Geological Society Meeting on November 3 at 7:30pm at 100 Lee Street features guest speaker Heather McCarthy, a doctoral candidate at the University of Buffalo.  Her presentation will focus on her research at the Garnet Hill outcrop located near Roxbury, Connecticut.

The Garnet Hill outcrop contains the garnet-mica schist (GMS) unit of the Rowe Formation that formed as a result of a metamorphosed Ordovician and Cambrian oceanic shelf sequence. This study investigates the fabric and chemical composition of the schist at this location and includes a comparison with similarly conducted studies of differently aged schists along the east coast of the United States.
