Graded bed sample

Today during Physical Geology lab, I used our grinding wheel to plane down a turbidite sample than I collected this past December down in Chilean Patagonia. Thanks to the technological miracle of blogging via iPhone, I can send it to you in a mere 45 seconds. Enjoy the graded bed: let it transport you back to the Cretaceous, in a deep marine basin with periodic influxes of mud and sand. Ahhh, turbidite; take me away!

  1. Ack! Kind of blurry. Trust me, it looked better on the iPhone screen. So much for the miracle…

  2. You saved me from making a snide comment about the focus. Aaah, the joys of life on the bleeding edge!
