    WEEK IN REVIEW -  September 17, 2020 (ZOOM #26)

3. View Brent's excellent PowerPoint HERE. Some of the images appear below.
Russ Speidel introduced Brent Cunderla, chapter president of the Wenatchee chapter of the Ice-Age Flood Institute (IAFI).    
Brent originated from Rochester, MN, received a B/S in Earth Sciences from Wisconsin U. (River Falls), an M/S in geology from Portland State and worked for 27 years as a geologist with the US Interior Dept.  Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in Wenatchee.  He retired at the end of 2015 and teaches classes and leads field trips on the geology of this region.
Brent explained how the glaciation and ice-age floods of north-central Washington have shaped local geology, and greatly influenced the use of the land and its resources from early native peoples to modern society today.
The Ice-Age Floods National Geologic Trail was established in March 2009, as a collaborative effort between the National Park Service (NPS) and many other partners including the IAFI.  It follows the pathways or routes of the catastrophic floods that occurred during the Pleistocene era (ice age), and educates the public using various interpretation methods, such as the Ice-Age Floods Trail as shown below.  It grew out of NPS scientific studies.
The story involves "FIRE" then "ICE", where first, volcanic hot spots formed the Columbia River Basalt Group (CRBG), supposedly millions of years ago.  This was followed by an ice age which produced great collections of ice in Canada, and formed several "ice dams" in northern Washington. The breaking of these dams periodically produced much flooding, between Missoula, MT and the Pacific.  A few of Brent's graphic images are shown below.
Credits for the all of the images used may be found in the PowerPoint linked above.
