Exploring Washington’s Geology
with Eugene Kiver
A short introductory course that covers the geologic development of the State of Washington over the past 1800 million years. Examples of geologic sites in all parts of our state will be covered in an illustrated lecture format. Included will be plate tectonics, the Northern Rocky Mountains; Columbia Plateau; Cascade Mountains (and our local volcanoes); Salish Sea and San Juan Islands, and the Olympic Mountains. The final session may be a field trip. No prior geologic training is necessary.
Instructor: Eugene Kiver, Ph.D., R.G.Dr. Kiver graduated from Case-Western University in Ohio and later earned his doctorate in Geology from the University of Wyoming in Laramie. He taught Geology for 34 years at Eastern Washington University in Cheney and conducted an active research career that emphasized landforms and surface processes. One of his major interests is the Missoula Floods story that he has researched over 30 years. He has co-authored three books: “Geology of U.S. Parklands”; “On the Trail of the Ice Age Floods”; and his most recent book: “Washington Rocks!”
