Description

Over a period of fifteen years, Dr John Rogers & colleagues trained 2nd yr students to map faulted and folded sedimentary rocks at the top of the Cape Supergroup (Rooinek Pass) and the base of the Karoo Supergroup (from Rooinek Pass to the Cape Town to Johannesburg railway line). The Witteberg Group, capping the Cape Supergroup, was found in Rooinek Pass overlain by the Dwyka, Ecca and Beaufort Groups of the Karoo Supergroup. The illustrated talk will show the finer geological details in this world-class & famous teaching area. The disastrous flood of 1981 will also be mentioned.
