Earth Science Week Field Trip 2017—Saturday, October 21
Location of trip: Carson Valley
A land in transition! Ancient river courses, young volcanoes, recent earthquakes, and modern debris flows in the Carson Valley
We hope you can join us on Saturday, October 21 as geoscientists from Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology explain the geology of the Carson Valley—in celebration of Earth Science Week 2017 and the importance of earth sciences to the people of the state of Nevada.
Major stops on this field trip will include the following:
- A "young" one-million-year-old cinder cone volcano
- Evidence of ancient rivers flowing from central Nevada to the Pacific Ocean before the Basin and Range of Nevada dropped down because of faulting
- Recently active earthquake faults
- Geothermal springs
- The 2014 Hot Spring Mountain flood and debris flows
NBMG coordinates annual geology field trips for the public during, or near, Earth Science Week. These field trips are fun, educational, family oriented, and always free. NBMG has been an active participant in Earth Science Week since it began in 1998.
