TOPIC: Geology of the Grand Canyon
SPEAKER: Scott Brame, --
A trip down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon is a whitewater and geologic dream journey. Starting at Lees Ferry, it is a 215 mile long trip through a 5000 foot deep gorge with over 100 rapids that cuts through Paleozoic sandstones, shales, and limestones into metamorphic and igneous crystalline basement rocks composed of the Vishnu Schist. Scott Brame is a faculty member at Clemson, who has led several geologic field trips to Southern Utah. He organizes and creates geologic field trips for the annual Clemson Hydrogeology Symposium and mentors an undergraduate mapping research group.
