Description

Cooper Bay is an exposed tri-lobed bay at the southeast extreme of South Georgia. The rocks get interesting in this area. In the panorama, the right side of the bay has sedimentary rocks like the ones in Gold Harbor. Igneous rocks dominate the right side of the bay. Between them, in a region called the Cooper Bay Dislocation Zone, the layers of earth were dragged sideways a few kilometers creating tight folds and shearing the rocks. Finally, the glaciers that were here have retreated over thousands of years leaving the sculpted landscape that you see.
