Trevor Contreras to Speak at Ice Age Floods Institute, Puget Lobe Chapter Meeting on May 6

DGER mapping geologist Trevor Contreras will address the Puget Lobe Chapter of the Ice Age Floods Institute on May 6, giving a talk titled “A Closer Examination of Hood Canal and the Puget Lowland.”

Trevor says,

I will be talking about some of the important findings from five years of geological mapping along Hood Canal. Hood Canal is a glacially carved fiord along the eastern margin of the Olympic Mountains. Geologists from the Department of Natural Resources, Division of Geology and Earth Resources, are mapping the deposits around Hood Canal for a variety of applications. Using modern mapping techniques, such as handheld computers with various imagery of the area, provides for a new understanding of the area and its complex history.

Trevor’s talk will be free and open to the public, so please feel free to attend!
