Suspicious Content: Sediments and Soils of the Apostle Islands—Part 2

  • Madeline Island Museum 226 Colonel Woods Avenue La Pointe, WI, 54850 United States

Free and Open to the Public

Speaker: Dr. Tom Fitz,  Professor of Geoscience, Northland College.

This presentation will be about the sediments left at the end of glacial deposition, the soils that have developed on those glacial‐age sediments, and end with modern beach sediments. Dr. Fitz’s interest in soils has grown because soils connect the physical Earth to terrestrial life.
