Wed, 11/30/2016 - 6:16am
Monday, November 14, 2016 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Between 15,000 and 18,000 years ago, a series of momentous floods crashed through the Pacific Northwest, reaching heights of up to 400 feet where Portland lies today and carving the landscape of the Columbia Gorge and Willamette Valley.

Geologist and gifted speaker Scott Burns will focus on the incredible story of J Harlen Bretz’s discovery of the Ice Age floods and the pioneering research that Bretz used to prove his discovery to the world. Burns will also discuss the floods’ effect on the formation of 16,000 square miles of Pacific Northwest terrain, from eastern Washington to Astoria and the Willamette Valley.  Whether or not you’re a geology buff, you’ll be glad you joined us for this fascinating and humorous presentation about our region’s natural history.

Scott Burns is a Professor Emeritus of Geology and Past-Chair of the Dept. of Geology at Portland State University. He has been teaching for 44 years, with past positions in Switzerland, New Zealand, Washington, Colorado and Louisiana.  Scott specializes in environmental and engineering geology, geomorphology, soils, terroir and Quaternary geology.
