Geology EVA.  Teach students about sedimentary rocks, deposition, lithification, and examination of the regolith.  Perform Monsell Soil Color analysis, use Brunton Compass to determine strike and dip.

Goal: Complete the Geology EVA.

EVA departure was slightly delayed due to the presence of the NPR reporter, Rae Bichell. During the EVA, we examined pieces of sandstone and used a Brunton compass to obtain the strike and dip of the cap rock on a hoodoo located at the site. Everyone was able to learn and demonstrate how to use the compass. The whole EVA was successfully completed.
