A Geological Odyssey Through Deep Time: Whence Came These Bends? by Russell Kohrs

This past Sunday, March 7, 2021, Russell Kohrs gave an engaging overview of the story of how the Shenandoah Valley has been forming for the last 600 million years, and how that development continues today. Russ’s presentation explored much of this past, and set the stage for the most modern phase of the valley’s geological development, the downcutting work of the North Fork of the Shenandoah River.

If you missed the event on Sunday check out the recorded version of the talk here to discover: how has the deep geological past of the area caused the phenomenal meander bends we see today? You can also explore the virtual field trip Russ put together at your own pace and leisure here.

Thanks to Russell for presenting, and thanks to all who attended the lecture—we look forward to ‘seeing’ you all at lectures to come!
