About the cover:
Graduate student Peter Lindquist (University of Vermont) examines exposures of Cretaceous gneiss in eastern Fiordland where crustal-scale reverse faults placed a large slice of lower crust up and to the east (right) over middle and upper crustal rocks. The faulting occurred at 8–7 Ma when a subducting slab of ocean crust collided with preexisting material at ~100 km depth beneath Fiordland. Photo by Keith Klepeis. See related article, p. 4–10.
