  • FTG-10: Appalachian Basin Stratigraphy, Tectonics, and Eustasy from the Blue Ridge to the Allegheny Front, Virginia and West Virginia
    Haynes, John T., Alan D. Pitts, Daniel H. Doctor, Richard J. Diecchio, B. Mitchell Blake, Jr., 2018, Appalachian Basin Stratigraphy, Tectonics, and Eustasy from the Blue Ridge to the Allegheny Front, Virginia and West Virginia: West Virginia Geological and Economic Survey, Field Trip Guide FTG-10, 86 p. This guide is from a two-day field trip in western Virginia and eastern West Virginia held before the 2015 Geological Society of America annual meeting in Baltimore, Maryland. The field trip examines exposures of Paleozoic sedimentary strata in the Appalachian Basin starting in the Blue Ridge physiographic province, going through the Valley and Ridge physiographic province, and ending in the Appalachian Plateau physiographic province. Most of the field-trip stops are along US 48 (Corridor H) in West Virginia.
