Classical Geological Sites in North America and Europe (New)


Designated Tuesday • 10:15 a.m.-11:45 a.m. • Mackey Auditorium

November 7

Come along on my sabbatical journey in 2005 to visit classical geological sites in the Canadian Rockies and Europe. We began touring Alberta to examine mountain building processes and for key fossil localities. Then we’re off to Great Britain to study landscapes and to find Nessie in Loch Ness. Italy shows us volcanic features near Naples and the processes that formed the picturesque Amalfi coast. We venture into the Alps to study the forces that uplifted this spectacular range and the glaciation that carved out the amazing peaks and valleys. Our final stop is in the Burgundy area of France for a goodbye toast.
