Earth Science- Sampling Rocks

Don Wason and Liz Connolly of Dover High School were able to send students to collect rock samples from Dover and surrounding areas of the Seacoast. The rocks were sent out to a petrographic lab to have thin sections (microscope slides of rock) made. These thin sections can be viewed microscopically by earth science students to develop a deeper understanding of the processes that formed these rocks with a more complete perspective on the geologic history of Seacoast New Hampshire.
