Suspicious Content: Sediments and Soils of the Apostle Islands, Part 2 - Madeline Island Museum
Free and Open to the Public; Presented in Association with Madeline Island Wilderness Preserve
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.
Dr. Fitz has been a professor at Northland College for 18 years. He has been studying and teaching everything about geology of the Lake Superior Region, from the oldest bedrock to the youngest sediments.
