Field Trip to Quarry


Field Trip to Quarry

Hanson Aggregates Quarry 34.511901,-81.802535

Paul Schroeder has arranged a several hour tour of the Mary Lou Rock Quarry in Clinton SC, about 15 km from the CalzoneCZO.  We'll meet at the quarry Thursday 9 June (not far from I-26) from 9 to 11-plus am.

Bring cameras, questions, rock hammers, sample bags, and boots.

If you have deep Calhoun weathering profile data, bring it along to stimulate discussion!

We expect to talk hydrology, geohydrology, biogeochemistry, weathering profiles, mineralogy, critical zone science!!!

The entrance is at 34.514027,-81.809505

More info from Paul:
Hard hat is not necessary, as they will provide them (and safety vests).

We don’t really want any late arrivers, as we must all undergo a quick safety orientation and sign liability release forms.

Please feel free to broadcast the opportunity in any way you can.
