The 2014 South Africa field camp will be in Cape Province (index map, upper left). Students will arrive and depart from Morningside Cottage in Tokai (near Cape Town). Mapping will begin when we move to the Langebaan area for 5 days, then continue in Gordons Bay (5 days) and conclude with 12 days mapping in the Ladismith area in the Small Karoo (geologic map, upper right). The camp will return to Cape Town for 3 days prior to departure. 



Students will study and map Recent sediments in Langebaan and Paleozoic rocks and structures in Gordons Bay and Ladismith. Gordons Bay is a simpler structure and prepares students to map the more complex structures in Ladismith. Students will prepare geologic maps, measure sections, construct cross-sections and write reports for all areas.
