Brussels Hill

Steven Dutch, Professor Emeritus, Natural and Applied Sciences, University of Wisconsin - Green Bay

A steep hill near Brussels with numerous Silurian exposures. The layers are tilted in the roadcuts on Highway 57 but the disturbance seems to be due to karst collapse rather than tectonic disturbance.
