The Geology of the Rocky Mountains – How to Share Earth Science in Fascinating Stories
Do you ever wonder about the geological history of the Rocky Mountains? When did they form? How old are the rocks and where did they come from? Why are some rock layers dipping steeply and others lay horizontal? We have a University of Calgary geoscience professor who studies mountain building in western Canada.
Join us for an interactive presentation to learn about the geologic past of the Rocky Mountains and surrounding regions, how climate and landscapes changed, and how we ended today with this fascinating landscape. Dr. Enkelmann will share some simple tricks to recognize key rock formations in the Rockies, how to tell rocks apart, and how to share geological histories with clients.
The presentation will highlight some earth stories from well-known locations followed by a Q&A period.
