SCULPTED BY FLOODS: The Northwest’s Ice Age Legacy
A story of the earth’s power, scientific discovery and human nature—the greatest story that is still just barely told. This DVD tells the story of cataclysmic floods that swept across the Pacific Northwest when ancient lakes burst through their glacial dams 15,000 years ago.
Producer-director Alison Kartevold worked with USGS scientist Richard Waitt to document terrestrial evidence of the floods and with USGS scientist Bill Normark to discuss where the floodwaters went when they hit the sea. Learn about the scientists who struggled to first decipher this story and those who continue to explore its meaning today.
