This field trip will visit the only large outcrop of the Chaswood Formation in Nova Scotia, the West Indian Road pit in central Nova Scotia. We will then drive to the subsurface type section of the Chaswood Formation. This trip will also provide visitors from afar with a brief overview of the landscapes and rural economy of Nova Scotia. Chapter 1 of this field guide is a general synopsis of the Chaswood Formation updated from the 2008 version of this field guide and an assessment of the relevance of the Chaswood Formation to studies of the Scotian Basin. We hope that this brings together information scattered in numerous papers, Open Files and theses in a useful manner. Chapter 2 provides specific detailed information on the West Indian Road pit. Chapter 3 consists of notes on our two field stops.
