Public Geology Lectures on the Second Friday of the Month
Convenient $5 evening parking is available after 5:00 p.m. in Parking Structure #2, 1724 SW Broadway, across from Cramer Hall. Note your license plate, so you can enter it and pay at the pay station. More PSU parking info here.
Join us at 6:00 p.m. at Pizzicato, 1708 SW 6th Avenue for delicious pizza and salads and beverages.
Join us in down the hall in the Geology Department office for snacks and discussion. Also check out our lending library in Room 69 staffed by Librarian Diane Gordon.
For People Using Public Transportation
Look for a convenient park and ride near a MAX train or bus stop. The #19 bus and the Orange Line MAX drop you off within a block or two of PSU. The bus gets scarce after 9:00 but MAX runs pretty frequently.
Lecture in Cramer Hall
Join us for lectures on topics of geologic interest. All GSOC lectures are open to the public. A $3 donation is requested. (Free for students.) Snacks are available after the lecture in the Geology Department Office, 17 Cramer Hall.
Dr. Bill Orr will speak on the topics of "Extinctions."
The Bonneville Flood was one of the largest floods on Earth. The cataclysmic flood-from the rapid 115 meter drop of Lake Bonneville from the Bonneville level to the Provo level-was nearly 200 meters deep in places and flowed at a maximum rate of about 1 million cubic meters per second — about 100 times greater than any historical Snake River flood. Jim O’Connor has worked at the U.S. Geological Survey since 1991, intent on improving understanding of the processes and events that shape the remarkable and diverse landscapes of the Pacific Northwest.
Bill Burgel will speak on the topic of Earthquake Early Warning Systems.
The Geological Society of the Oregon Country invites you to its 84rd Annual Banquet.
