'Opened my eyes': U of T undergraduate students visit Turkey, where geology and culture collide
from University of Toronto
To an aspiring geologist, southern Ontario leaves something to be desired since it sits astride the geologically stable Canadian Shield. Not so the Cappadocia region of central Turkey. “For geologists, Turkey is exciting,” says Professor Russell Pysklywec, chair of the department of Earth sciences in the Faculty of Arts & Science at the University of Toronto. “It sits on the boundary between two tectonic plates and, as a result, is geologically very active."
