Román Colón1 Ashley, G.H., , Bituminous coal fields of Pennsylvania; General information on coal: Pennsylvania Bureau of Topo-graphic and Geologic Survey, 4th ser., Mineral Resource Report 6, p. Dr. Merschat’s research is focused on (1) the structure and tectonics of the Appalachian orogen; (2) the provenance of the different crystalline terranes of the Blue Ridge and Piedmont; and (3) the thermochronologic evolution of the orogen. He integrates geologic mapping, structural analysis, SHRIMP U-Pb geochronology, petrology, and geochemistry into his research and is currently involved.

Stratigraphy and structural geology are two fields in which Earth scientists try to interpret the stories told by rocks.
