What do Rocks Remember?

Billion-year-old Mountains!

  • What is going on in the belly of a great mountain belt?
  • How do geologists tell time?
  • What does Ontario Canada have in common with the Himalayas?
    Michelle J. Markley, Associate Professor of Geology at Mount Holyoke College, likes to study mountains, specifically how they were formed.  Her research looks at rock deformation, at their folds and faults and how they get their texture, or fabric.
