Fire, Ice, and Water and the formation of Essex County
This course will begin long ago with the formation of the Canadian Shield and the long periods when this area was covered by the sea under tropical to arctic conditions. The region was then periodically covered by ice, up to more than 2 km in thickness, and meltwater lakes, and as the ice and water retreated, it was occupied by grazing mastodons, mammoths, and other large animals. In this course I will explain why this area is so flat, why the southern portion consists of sand rather than clay, and the origin of the local deposits of salt, oil, and gas. All aboard for a fascinating geological ride. Class Size: Max. 95

Instructor: Alan Trenhaile
