Product Description
A paleocurrent or paleocurrent indicator is a geological feature (typically a sedimentary structure) that helps one determine the direction of flowing water in the geologic past. This is an invaluable tool in the reconstruction of ancient depositional environments.
Students will measure using a protractor the palocurrents (sedimentary structures) of three regions. Students will use the data to determine the marine environment which created these sedimentary structures.
