Geology Professor to Lead Trip

Dr. Clint Barineau, Associate Professor of Geology at CSU’s Department of Earth and Space Sciences – along with colleagues from Florida State University – will lead the 2017 Georgia Geological Society’s annual field trip on Oct. 7 – 8.

The trip will focus on recent research developments on the evolution of the southern Appalachian Mountains, especially the first phase of mountain building during the Ordovician Period.  Headquartered in Carrollton, Georgia,  the field trip will take participants to notable outcrops in western Georgia as part of a discussion on the geologic history of the region.
