Geology of Fidalgo Island by Scott Petersen

Join us on Zoom (details below)

Fidalgo Island has a fascinating geologic history that includes rocks from deep in the crust, volcanoes, and sediments that were deposited in the deep ocean. We will discuss these features as well as fundamentals of plate tectonics and how our island fits into the complex geology of northwest Washington. Scott will identify locations on the island where you can hunt for evidence of the geologic history he presents.
Presenter Scott Petersen has done extensive academic field and laboratory work in complex geologic areas. Most of his career was spent in environmental remediation. He holds a Ph.D. in geology and geochemistry.

Helpful Hints on Using Zoom 

  1. Zoom has been in the news for having some security concerns. You'll be happy to know that those issues are addressed in the way that we are using a meeting code and password that gives you private access. 
  2. The easiest way to access these presentations is to download theZoom app to your computer, tablet (ipad) or mobile device. Use the App Store on your device to download the free Zoom app. All you have to do is enter the meeting ID number and password before enjoying the presentation. 
  3. Here's a Zoom Tutorial on YouTube.
  4. You don't need to have your camera on and its best to stay muted. There is a chat box function for questions during the presentation and usually  will be an opportunity to interact with the speaker at the end of the talk.
  5. We can only have 100 people sign in at a time. We don't foresee that as a problem, but who knows?!
  6. If there is a problem with signing on live - rest easy because we are recording the talks and putting them up on our website.
