Unfortunately, due to poor road conditions and a lack of four wheel drives, the majority of my trip did not occur. My trip was supposed to examine short cycle sequence stratigraphy up close and personal. However, we only viewed it from afar at best.
Sedimentology and stratigraphy are of a special interest to myself. As I was researching for a field trip topic, I stumbled upon the Arrow Canyon region of SW Nevada. Upon further discovery, it came to my knowledge that this site had a nice outcrop of 5 short order transgression-regression cycles. Also located here is the type locality for the GSSP designated time boundary for the Mississippian-Pennsylvanian by the occurrence of a specific connodont. With sed/strat being of great interest to me, this seemed like a natural fit.
It was disappointing to not view what I wanted to. However, the experience for my field trip overall, was positive.
