The fossil cliffs of Joggins

Laing Ferguson, Mount Allison University, Sackville, N.B.

Introduction

In late May of 1992, the Geological Survey of Canada erected a bronze plaque in the little village of Joggins in north west Nova Scotia on the shores of Chignecto Bay in the Bay of Fundy (see Wat On Earth, Fall 1992 Issue). The plaque commemorated the work of Sir William Logan in the area and the 150th Anniversary of the GSC. Logan was the first Director General of the GSC.
