Expect Challenge. Achieve Distinction.

The Appalachians in central Vermont preserve a protracted history of metamorphism and deformation. Many of the structural boundaries that separate different episodes of mountain building remain enigmatic. This work used a combination of detailed geologic mapping and microstructural fabric analysis to better understand a major structure in central Vermont that separates rocks associated with two major mountain building events. Refining the modes, mechanisms, and timing of deformation along this zone will improve regional models of orogenesis and allow for more robust comparisons of similar structures along strike in Quebec.
