Within these pages you will discover what led to the formation of this magnificent orogen.  Areas of focus include geology, tectonics, geophysics, and geochemistry.  The inspiration for this interdisciplinary approach to studying orogens was provided by George Zandt and his Spring 2001 Orogenic Systems class.  For additional student projects, please visit the GEOS 527 course webpage.  Have fun exploring!
