Geology EVA. Teach students about sedimentary rocks, deposition, lithification, and examination of the regolith. This is the second half of EVA #4 that was shortened due to the NPR reporter visit.
Goal: Complete the Geology EVA.
The location for this EVA was chosen in order to study different kinds of geologic structures and the methods by which they were created. The pattern of lithification in the sedimentary rock field was unique and interesting to the crew. Former evidence of a vigorous fluvial environment was observed at the second location. Determination of width and height were performed during the EVA.
