Missoula Floods and the Geologic Processes
 That Formed Your Soil 
with Dr. Charlene Montierth, 
Professor of Geology at Clark College

Charlene’s talk will be divided into two parts. First she'll talk about the general geologic processes that produce soil. Then she'll provide an overview of the geology of the region, with a detailed look at the Missoula Floods as the primary geologic foundation for Vancouver and Willamette Valley soils.

Charlene Montierth is the Head of the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Clark College, where she has taught for 18 years. The college has recognized her commitment to her profession with an Exceptional Faculty award as well as a Presidential coin and many of her former students have gone on to complete Geology degrees and work in the field. She completed her Bachelor’s degree in Geology at UCLA and her PhD at the University of Oregon, where she did research in the eruptive behavior of Hawaiian lavas. She is passionate about teaching Geology and routinely meets with school and community groups. She is also an avid amateur photographer and birder, loves to garden, and travels at every opportunity. She has happily lived in Clark County for 18 years with her wife and assorted dogs - the current pack consists of two, Ben and Jack.

Meetings are FREE to the public and members.
 No registration required.
