Still a work in progress. I wanted to do another head as a study for the previous jam sculpt… and then I kept going. SFW version here, definitely not in its original form though. Based on a picture by cookingpeach / Miupix .
Will post more as it finishes up so, Enjoy the WIP!
Geology 101 - Imbrication is depositional fabric with a preferred orientation of the clasts in an overlapping fashion (similar to fallen dominos). Common to conglomerates, imbrication is a good indicator of paleocurrent direction. Photos show a braided stream network in Kananaskis, Alberta, Canada. Lower photo shows large clasts, in older deposited sediment, that are dipping in an “up stream” direction to the left. The upper photo shows a similar senerio with modern deposition from the same river system. The imbricated clasts sit in the center of the photo, dipping up stream to the left.
Photo @ladzinski / Braided streams of sediment flow, known as Lahar, moving over the glacial wetlands of inland Iceland. #Lahar is the result of a volcanic eruption, or indirectly by the collapse of loose material on the flanks of a volcano. A variety of phenomena may trigger a lahar, including melting of glacial ice due to volcanic activity, intense rainfall on loose pyroclastic material, or the outburst of a lake that was previously dammed by pyroclastic or glacial sediments. information sited from Wikipedia. @chrisburkard @prana @3stringsproductions by natgeo
The kinds of neat things geologists can do in a laboratory. Here’s a flume tank, set up to run water down a slope, loaded with lots of sediment so that we can watch how it is redistributed. Various river processes like growth of bars, avulsions, channel migration, and channel expansion all make appearances.
