Instructor: John Roth
Date: Saturday, August 6, 2016
Location: Meet at SFI, Selma, OR
Find out why the Klamaths are only loosely attached to the continent and why the coast moves towards Alaska faster than our own interior valleys do. This course will look at five river, road, and ocean cuts that sketch one of the world’s most complete exposed seafloors. We will start at the Illinois River (now pirated by the Rogue River) and end at its parent river at Crescent City. Learn the latest research about why our geology is so famous.
