NEW! The Glacial & Geologic History of Rocky’s West Side

Jun 22, 2019
$72.00 – $80.00

In this course, participants will spend time in the field examining features of glacial and geological interest. The goal of this course is to provide both a general knowledge of the glacial and geologic history of the park’s west side as well as the thought processes and geologic tools used by geologists to decipher this history. We shall also find out that much remains to be learned about some of the geologic processes that shaped the geology and glaciology of…

NEW! Glaciers in Rocky

Jul 20, 2019
$72.00 – $80.00

During the ice ages, glaciers moved down the valleys of the Fall River and the Big Thompson. Glaciers carved U-shaped cross sections into formerly narrow stream valleys and left natural dams of glacial debris at their terminus. Striated and grooved bedrock, glacial erratics, and ridges of debris along valley walls are some of the other calling cards of ice. The ebb and flow of glacial advance is controlled by astronomical phenomena: the eccentricity of the earth’s orbit, the tilt of…
