Bedrock and Glacial Geology of the Pemaquid Region
with David Pope
Ever wondered about the white streaks at Pemaquid Point, or the variety of rocks in ledges along Route One from Wiscasset to Warren? This course will cover the origins of the bedrock and how glaciers formed our land surface.
The week before class begins will be spent getting students introduced to Zoom and Google Classroom by practicing individual and small group meetings. These intro sessions will enable introduction or review of a few rocks and minerals found in the area. A good internet connection allowing Zoom video is needed as materials are largely visual.
Self guided field trips will be introduced each week. Questions and feedback can be individually processed during the week. Field trips will include precise itineraries with maps and photos and references to the instructor’s book “Geology of the Pemaquid Region” (strongly advised, available at Sherman’s Bookstore, Damariscotta, or from the author (firstname.lastname@example.org, or 207-504-2380). It will help if you have practiced Zoom meetings before the course starts. Course is limited to 15 to keep the on-line meetings manageable.
David Pope grew up rockhounding in New Hampshire’s White Mountains. He holds both a BS and a MS in geology.
