The Virginia Commonwealth encompasses five distinct geologic provinces, and contains a rich variety of igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks that range in age from the Proterozoic to the present. Virginia also has a wealth of distinctive landforms and active processes that continue to modify its surface. Few states can match Virginia’s geologic diversity.

Research into Virginia’s geology has been conducted for well over two hundred years. This volume provides a modern overview of Virginia’s geology and updates the geologic community on recent advances made in understanding Virginia’s geologic history.

This volume is intended as a resource for professional geologists, graduate students, and upper-level undergraduates. Geologists unfamiliar with Virginia will be able to use this volume as a primer to the region. The volume brings together, as a coherent package, information that is currently widely dispersed throughout the geologic literature.
