Paleozoic Geology of Virginia/West Virginia

Northern Virginia Community College Geology Field Trips

NOVA’s Annandale campus offers 1-day weekend courses—essentially, field trips—related to our hobby. You can get more information at the Field Studies in Geology—GOL 135 Website.

This field trip will let you explore the late Silurian and Devonian geology of western Virginia and West Virginia, considering ancient depositional settings (tropical marine reefs, lagoons, shelves, deep basins, and terrestrial flood plains) and fossils, as well as later deformation (faulting and folding) associated with the Valley and Ridge Province.
