Geology of Grenville-Age Basement and Younger Cover Rocks in the<br>West Central BLUE RIDGE, North Carolina<br>Carolina Geological Society Field Trip Guidebook 1990

The region to be traversed during the 1990 Carolina Geological Society field trip is centrally located in the widest part of the Blue Ridge Province. The trip will focus on results from our geologic mapping in the core of the province north and west of Asheville, North Carolina. Here, one may examine some of the region's oldest rocks and their relationships to the younger, flanking cover rocks. The field trip stops are selected to show: 1) the variable character of the high metamorphic grade, Grenville-age basement rocks; 2) relations at the faulted and folded basement-cover contact; and 3) the contrasting effects of Barrovian Paleozoic metamorphism on the basement and cover. By Carl E. Merschat and Leonard S. Wiener, 1990. 42 pages.
