The Chuckanut, not just a good brewpub
Dr. George Mustoe will lecture on one of his favorite rocks, the Chuckanut Sandstone. In the late 1900s, it was a major building stone in the area, but its much more than that. Details to follow in 2022.
Carolyn will speak about the geology/history/hazards/impact of the exchanges at the Nevado del Ruiz and Mount Rainier volcanoes, which have twin catastrophic lahar histories and hazards. In Colombia, we have had many conversations with first responders and survivors of the 1985 lahar disaster, and they have motivated US officials to double down on local efforts. Our emergency management technologies and coordination inspire the Colombians. The experiences have transformed me, as well as the official preparedness efforts in both nations. More complete abstract and bio details to follow. This will be a Zoom broadcast—Stay tuned.
