The Inner Piedmont is a large, composite, sillimanite-grade terrane that extends from near the Virginia–North Carolina border to central Alabama and consists of the eastern Tugaloo and Cat Square terranes. It is bound to the west by the Brevard fault zone and to the east by the central Piedmont suture.

interpretation for mid-crustal level channelized flow of the Inner Piedmont terrane. The Opelika Complex is not related to the Inner Piedmont, as is traditionally thought, but is continuous with the eastern Blue Ridge around the hinge zone of the Tallassee synform as originally suggested by Grimes et al.

(a). Abstract. The Inner Piedmont extends from North Carolina to Alabama and comprises the Neoacadian (– Ma) orogenic core of the southern Appalachian orogen.

Bordered to west by the Blue Ridge and the exotic Carolina superterrane to the east, the Inner Piedmont is cored by an extensive region of migmatitic, sillimanite-grade rocks. Inner Piedmont is divided into two groups of rocks, Dadeville and Opelika Complexes (Bentley and Neathery, ), divided by Stonewall line.

Dadeville Complex consists of Agricola Schist, Waresville Schist, Camp Hill Gneiss, Chattasofka Creek Gneiss, Ropes Creek Amphibolite, Waverly Gneiss, Simmons Crossroads metagranite (informal), and various unnamed mafic and ultramafic intrusive.

8, p. The Inner Piedmont is bounded on the northwest and southeast by narrow, intensely folded, highly sheared, and partially cataclastic belts of lower-grade rocks. The northwest belt is termed the Non-migmatitic-Brevard belt; the southeast belt is herein called the Kings Mountain-Wacoochee belt.

Through STATEMAP, The Geological Survey of Alabama has completed and published more than 50 new geologic maps at the minute (,) scale, and several more are in progress. The maps are color plots and are accompanied by explanations and booklets summarizing the geology. Alabama Rocks Alabama's diverse geology has produced great variation in terrain and physiography, ranging from the coastal lowlands of the southern part of the state to rugged mountainous areas of the north.

Physiographically, the state is divided into five sections: the Cumberland Plateau, Highland Rim, Valley and Ridge, Piedmont Upland, and East Gulf Coastal Plain. Callan Bentley teaches geology at Piedmont Virginia Community College in Charlottesville, Virginia.

He is a Fellow of the Geological Society of America. For his work on this blog, the National Association of Geoscience Teachers recognized him with the James Shea Award.

The Piedmont is a plateau region located in the Eastern United sits between the Atlantic coastal plain and the main Appalachian Mountains, stretching from New York in the north to central Alabama in the south. The Piedmont Province is a physiographic province of the larger Appalachian division which consists of the Gettysburg-Newark Lowlands, the Piedmont Upland and the Piedmont.

The Inner Piedmont is composed of the Waresville Schist, a diverse group of metamorphosed volcanic and volcaniclastic rocks that has been intruded by the Rock Mills Granite Gneiss. boundary between the Inner Piedmont and the Charlotte terrane. A total of eleven and possibly twelve westward­ transported crystalline thrust sheets compose these ter­ ranes in the Greenville quadrangle.

The Blue Ridge terrane consists of a stack of five thrust sheets; the Inner Piedmont is underlain by four and possibly five thrust sheets, and. Geology and ground water of the Piedmont area of Alabama, Files: Type: Chambers County.

This volume contains 36 original papers reporting the results of research performed throughout nearly the entire length and breadth of the Appalachian region, including all major provinces and geographical areas.It is proposed that the SSR amphibole cores were metamorphosed probably during terrane–terrane collision under amphibolite facies conditions, with the actinolite rims possibly being formed during thrusting of the SSR rocks onto the continental margin.
