chevron fold, or to be precise (bottom to top) chevron fold, unconformity, synform
Strike is 0 degrees and dip is 76.5 degrees? I marked the contours then calculated the dip angle by measuring the distance between each contour line and using trig with the depth difference. The strike was just the azimuth of the contours I think.I'm walking out in the desert when I notice a seam of gold ore outcropping right under my feet, at an elevation of 750 m. I then walk 80 m NW and come to another outcropping of the same seam (at an elevation of 1000 m). Eager to stake a claim to the bed, I run SSE to get back to my car, nearly missing a third outcrop 200 m away from the 2nd, at an elevation of 600 m. Assuming the ore forms a planar bed, what is the strike and dip of the bed? Explain your method for solving the problem.
75.6 degrees -- did you switch digits? :/
