Geology Research & Resources

This page is being used to post materials that will likely be interesting and helpful to readers of Whence These Special Places?  Just click on the links shown below.  The resources include write-ups on Special Places not included in the book, as well as a report on the Shining Rock research project introduced in the book.  They also include Bill Jacobs’  more-academic discussion of the geologic history of the broader Appalachians, for those who want to dig deeper and more broadly than in Whence These Special Places?  In addition, Bill expects that continued research will result, over time, in refinements of the information presented in the book, as well as analyses of new Special Places.   So check back to see what else gets added.
