The Champlain Thrust newsletter is a memorable UVM Geology Department tradition.  We hope you enjoy reading about the activities of the department and of each other.

The newsletter is named for a unique, local, geologic feature known as the  "Champlain Thrust." The thrust fault is acutally a "reverse thrust" because the older Dolostone is above the younger Shale. The newsletter is a good mix of the old and the new.
