Geology of Virginia book presentation

Dr. Scott Eaton, an editor and contributor to The Geology of Virginia, presented a copy of this volume to Governor McAuliffe in July.  The 538 page book is the first comprehensive review of Virginia's geology published in over a century, and represents the contribution of over 40 geoscientists, and covers all aspects of regional, historical, economic, and hazards geology, as well as fossil life..

“Every Virginian should be proud of the unique geologic diversity found within the Commonwealth,” said Governor McAuliffe. “The Geology of Virginia is an incredible tool for the academic community and amateur enthusiasts alike, and I am thrilled to celebrate its publication with the experts and editors responsible for its creation. This caliber of scholarly achievement advances the field of geology and underscores Virginia as one of the best places to study this topic in the world.”
