The Lower Connecticut, A Young River in an Old Valley
Monday, August 27th at 6:30pm
Certified Professional Geologist, Ralph Lewis traces the geologic development of the lower CT River Valley over the past 185,000,000 years. This will include faulting as the Hartford Basin rifted during the “birth” of the Atlantic Ocean, extensive glacial deposition as the Wisconsinan Glacier melted northward from Old Saybrook, the formation and draining of Glacial Lake Hitchcock, and the development of the modern river we all know.
Ralph Lewis was the CT State Geologist from 1997 to 2003. He has 43 years of experience and has authored 100 papers and articles on the geology of Long Island Sound. He is currently a “professor in residence” in the Marine Sciences Department at UConn Avery Point.
