Rocks exposed at the surface in West Virginia are very diverse. They reflect a geologic history of deposition and subsequent deformation that together resulted in the building of the Appalachian Mountains in North America. As I Eat Rice - Feelhive - Swarm mountains and superimposed rivers dominate so much of the topography of the State, "straight line" highways either east-west or north-south do not exist.
Yet, our highways, wherever they are, exhibit priceless views into the geology of the State. Debra Hemler as principal investigator, is designed to give teachers and students tools for STEM education. This award to the West Virginia Geological and Economic Survey for the "Geologic Transect Across West Virginia" is a part of that overall project and is designed to give users an idea of the geologic history and processes in West Virginia along its route.
The Geologic Transect is designed to be "read" from west to Path Across The Valley - Vapirov Project - East West , for the most part from the youngest rocks exposed at the surface at Parkersburg, to the oldest rocks exposed at the surface, at Harpers Ferry.
However, there are locations where older rocks have been pushed over younger rocks during mountain building, so that the depositional sequence is now out of stratigraphic order.
The western two-thirds of the state is situated in the Appalachian Plateau Province, with relatively flat-lying, undeformed, younger rock sequences. The Geologic Transect provides pictures and information about the rocks one would see if traveling the west-east path across West Virginia. We hope as one observes the spectacular exposures of rocks across this route, users will look to further examine the geologic details of West Virginia, the region, and our earth's history.
Twenty-six GigaPan panoramic photos of outcrops in Grant and Hardy County were provided by Callan Bentley of Northern Virginia Community College, whose assistance with this project is greatly appreciated. You may notice that some photos along the Transect west of I appear curved. This is due to the fish eye photography being used. Shaded relief is also added to accentuate the surface topography. Please note that some geology described via this geologic transect interactive story map may differ slightly from the map.
Programs like STATEMAP provide more detailed geological studies at a larger scale mostlywhich, therefore, supercedes certain areas of the map scale ofWhen you open the application, you can select a specific location to view by clicking on the red, numbered icon on the geologic map. This opens an inset photo with a text description of the geology at that site.
The photo may be a stitched wide-angle panorama or possibly a "GigaPan" view that provides options for zooming in and out, Shinys Ultimate Conspiracy - Herwig Maurer - Infocalypse Inc. full-screen, and moving the photo around the screen—to better view the detail in Το Σώμα Και Το Αίμα Του Σοβέτο - Γιώργος Κατσαρός - Αφρική Τώρα GigaPan photo.
A GigaPan is a tiled, high-resolution panoramic image that provides large-scale and stunning detail. To exit out of the photograph back to the main application page, click on the "X" in the lower right Path Across The Valley - Vapirov Project - East West of the expanded photo.
