RVF and Callan Bentley's Regional Geology Webinar

by DrewLUD

The RVF geology committee is at it again. Committee member Callan Bentley is Assistant Professor of Geology at PVCC, and he is host of another information-packed online geology zoom presentation that took place live on Sunday, April 11th at 3 pm. This presentation reviews the past 1 billion years of local history. Diving deep into the geologic past, he examines two major periods of mountain-building, making now-dismembered supercontinents, two episodes of rifting, breaking up those supercontinents and filling the space between their fragments with new ocean basins, and also periods of tectonic calm, when sediments akin to those of the modern Bahamas piled up gently on the edge of the North American continent.
