About the Event
GEOLOGY OF CALIFORNIA
July 16, 2022
With geologist Tim Elam
California has some of the most spectacular, beautiful, and unusual landforms on Earth. The state has virtually every type of rock and geologic feature. These are a reflection of dynamic geologic activities that have occurred over millions of years. Some of these activities continue today. The landforms we see today greatly reflect the rock types and geologic processes that influenced their formation.
Yosemite Valley, Death Valley, Mt. Whitney and the Sierra Nevada, San Francisco Bay, the Kern River Canyon, Mojave Desert, the San Andreas Fault, Lake Tahoe, and the San Joaquin Valley are just a few of the recognizable names of geologic features. How were they created? When? What are their evidences of geologic activity?
Join geologist Tim Elam as he presents a photographic overview of the geology of California. The presentation will be informal, and questions and discussion are encouraged. No geologic background is necessary to enjoy the event.
There will be no extra charge for attending this event…just the normal Museum entrance fee.
