This May the department went on a trip to Scotland! We saw some classic geology such as Hutton’s unconformity, and Arthurs Seat. The team gets ready to go out to the Garbh Eileach islands to look at ~720 Ma carbonates and glacial diamictite thought to be related to the Sturtian Snowball Earth. The group departs from the zodiacs onto Garbh Eileach Huttons unconformity on the southern coast of Scotland, subvertical greywacke and shale are overlain by gently dipping red sandstone and conglomerate. The unconformity has a lot of topography, where the greywacke in the foreground is higher than the redsandstones in the mid distance!
