Swiss Tectonics Studies Group, Field excursion 2023
The easternmost Jura Mountains revisited following Nagra’s regional exploration: Extent, Age and Impact
The next STSG field excursion will occur on September 16th to 17th, 2023. This year's STSG excursion will lead into the easternmost Jura mountains, a region whose tectonics have been intensively investigated by Nagra including field work, seismic surveying and deep exploration drilling. During the first day, some key outcrops around Brugg/Baden will be visited to discuss structure, extent and age of this part of the thrust-belt. On the second day, Nagra will kindly provide access to its corelab where we will be able to study drillcores from the evaporitic section representing the décolllement horizon of the thrust belt and the above-lying units including the Opalinus Clay.
