A Window into a Fossil Subduction Zone

Authored by Carolyn Tewksbury-Christle. Whitney Behr and Mark Helper, both fresh off several weeks of field work in Alaska, joined me in another field season exploring the geology of the Condrey Mountain Window. Straddling the California-Oregon border, the Condrey Mountain Window is a part of the Klamath Mountains and belongs to both the Rogue Valley and Klamath National Forests. This

Fall field work on Syros – lots of sunshine, cats, and cool rocks!

In case you didn’t know… Syros represents a fossil subduction shear zone. Rocks were brought to eclogite facies conditions in the Eocene and exhumed through the Miocene, partially along the plate interface and partially by crustal scale low-angle normal faults of the North and West Cycladic Detachment Systems. We go there to study the structural and rheological evolution of several different
