The Ice Age Flood: The Washington Soil Mosaic
September 28, 2023 @ 2:15 pm - 3:30 pm
The class will start with a discussion on the ice age floods that inundated portions of the Pacific Northwest. Then we’ll take a closer look at the impact of the floods upon soils; including the thin soils found in the Channeled Scablands, the formation of the Loess deposits found in much of Eastern Washington, and assorted soils found in the Puget Sound area that were derived from Glacial Till.
