Geology! Are we the only place on Earth with flood basalts? Are these giant lava flows related to mass extinctions? How has drilling for oil & gas in Washington helped us learn about these great lavas? Where in Washington can we find the volcanic vents that created these monster lavas? Have recent eruptions in Hawaii and Iceland helped us better visualize the Pacific Northwest 16 million years ago? CWU Geology’s own Nick Zentner will talk about these and other beguiling questions in his own inimitable style in a new, FREE lecture that EVERYONE is welcome to attend (until seating runs out).
When: Wednesday, January 25, 2017, 7:00 pm.
Where: Hal Holmes Center, Ellensburg Public Library. 209 N. Ruby Street, Ellensburg, WA
Lecture will be recorded for CWU’s YouTube channel.
