  • Five Feet High and Rising: The Geology and History of Great Floods
    July 30, 2020
    1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
    - Datetime Description (optional)

Floods are awesome spectacles and are an essential part of the shaping of our landscape. All the geologic processes of rivers are on display during floods. Hydrogeologist Joe Haberfeld will introduce the stream processes which transport water and sediment during normal flow and during floods. We will look at some of the great floods in American history and around the world. Not all floods are due to rivers overflowing their banks and not all are due to natural causes. Coastal storms, glaciers, and volcanic eruptions can bring flooding, while man-made structures designed to protect against flooding have failed causing great loss of life and property.

This is a 2 session class. Register one time only and you are registered for both sessions.
