Abstract "Dr. John M. Dennison spent his career studying the Appalachians, teaching and mentoring his students and professional colleagues, publishing papers, leading field trips, and presenting ideas at regional, national and international conferences. This volume is a collection of papers contributed by former students and colleagues to honor his memory. Learn about stratigraphy and paleontology ranging in age from Ordovician to Mississippian in Kentucky, New York, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia; Devonian airfall tephras throughout the eastern United States; a Devonian lonestone; a Middle Eocene bentonite in North Carolina and its relationship to a volcanic swarm in western Virginia; and a 3D model of a ductile duplex in northwestern Georgia. The stratigraphic and geologic diversity of the papers reflect Dennison's many interests and relationships with a large group of geoscientists"-- Provided by publisher.
General note"This volume is dedicated to the memory of Dr. John Manley Dennison (1934-2014), student of Appalachian geology, stratigrapher, mentor, and genuine academic. John dedicated his career to studying the Paleozoic rocks of the Appalachians, principally those of the Devonian Period. His efforts are preserved in more than 300 articles, abstracts, and field-trip guidebooks. This volume, an outgrowth of a memorial symposium held to honor John at the 2015 Geological Society of America Southeastern Section Meeting, is a collection of papers written by former students and colleagues for this memorial volume. The papers represent the diversity of John's interests, both stratigraphic and topical."--Dedication, page v.
