Remapping of the Six Mile Quad
Dates: March 25, 27, and May 1
Field Trip Leader: Victoria Sellers, Clemson University
In the 1960s and 1970s, Villard Griffin of Clemson University mapped several quads in the Inner Piedmont of South Carolina. Advances in the understanding of the nature of the thrust sheets in the upstate of SC has neccessitated the need to remap some of these quads to make them compatiable with recently published maps. This trip will examine the logic used to interpret the structural associations in the southern part of the Sunset Quad and our attempts to extend those concepts into the adjacent Six Mile Quad.
