Fieldwork on the Hamilton escarpment

Had a great morning on the Hamilton Escarpment with Prof. Carolyn Eyles and her students. This work is investigating why some parts of the escarpment may be prone to collapse. In particular, the students are looking at the nature of fractures, their distribution and how this is controlled by stratigraphy.
