New England Geology: Ice Ages, Plate Collisions, Earthquakes & Climate Change

Saturday June 22, 2019
11:00 AM until 12:00 PM


Geologist Dr. James Lawford Anderson will present a talk and visual presentation entitled New England Geology: Ice Ages, Plate Collisions, Earthquakes & Climate Change.  

A lot has happened to the land we now know as Northwest Connecticut! From mountain ranges to climate change, geology helps us understand the world around us. Join us as Dr. Anderson, professor and the Director of Undergraduate Students for the Department of Earth and Environment at Boston University, leads a fascinating talk about our region. Dr. Anderson is an igneous petrologist and much of his work has been devoted to an understanding of crust formation and plate tectonics. Participants will learn how the Appalachian Mountains formed, what evidence the six ice ages left behind, and what New England’s earthquakes mean for coastal dwellers.
