The Tennessee-Virginia Valley and Ridge is one of the best developed and best-studied foreland fold-and-thrust regions in the world. It is surprising that this structure does not extend northward into Pennsylvania where we have to stretch the definition of a foreland fold-and-thrust belt just to include it. a report entitled "Evolution and Macroscopic Structure of Valley and.

The focus of this field trip is the Plateau and the Valley and Ridge where sedimentary rocks show the least indication of metamorphism. During mapping of Paleozoic deformation in these two provinces, the 19th century geologists, H.D. and W.B. Rogers, first realized that there was structural regularity along strike to both asymmetric folds and.   Roeder et al. () show that more than km of shortening occurred in the Valley and Ridge during the Late Paleozoic (Alleghanian) deformation. Thus, rocks which are above Al- leghanian detachments east of the Valley and Ridge must be positioned more than km east of their present positions to approximate their pre-Alleghanian posi- tions. a valley, 3 miles or so wide, whose floor is feet or more below the general level of the Plateau. Valley and Ridge In this province, 40 or more miles across in Tennessee, is a generally comformable sequence of Paleozoic (Cambrian to Pennsylvanian) sediments of varying thickness but which probably averages 3 or so miles.

  The Great Valley is known by different names in different states, and includes the Lebanon Valley (Pennsylvania), the Shenandoah Valley (Virginia), the Hagerstown Valley (Maryland), and the Great Valley of East Tennessee. Some of the most scenic features of the Valley and Ridge province occur where rivers and streams cut through ridges to form.

Two explore aspects of the Nashville dome, including Mississippian Waulsortian mounds and meso-scale structural deformation. Various aspects of the Valley and Ridge are visited on three trips, including the Scopes trial in Dayton, Tennessee, structural aspects of the Sequatchie Valley, and regional Silurian Red Mountain/Rockwood stratigraphy.   Callan attends the Geological Society of Washington's fall field trip, examining the relationship between grape-growing and the underlying geology of two provinces in northern Virginia: the Blue Ridge and the Valley & Ridge. With GSW compatriots, Callan visited Hume Vineyards in the central Blue Ridge province and North Mountain Vineyard and Winery in the Shenandoah Valley. This is part .
