Neoproterozoic Borborema Province, Northeast Brazil

Caption: Geologist Tatiana Gonçalves Dias rests upon the normal flank of an inclined horizontal northwest verging similar fold, in an external fold and thrust belt of the Neoproterozoic Borborema Province, northeast Brazil. Further northeast, in the continuation of this fold belt, oceanic crust remnants are described in this issue. The photo was taken by geologists Fabrício Caxito, Mônica Mendes, and Julio Sanglard during a field trip in July 2008. See related article by Caxito et al., here: http://dx.doi.org/10.1130/G35479.1.
