About Chuck Bailey

I am a professor of Geology at the College, where I teach courses such as the Earth’s Environmental Systems, Weather & Climate, Field Methods, and Earth Structure & Dynamics. My research focuses on structural geology and tectonics, this work takes me (and my students) from the Blue Ridge Mountains in Virginia to the low deserts in southern Arizona and many places in between. I am a 1989 graduate of the College where I doubled majored in Biology and Geology.

For more information about the W&M structure and tectonics group visit my personal website.
