Underwater in Salem Sound Lecture Series:
"Rock, Gravel, Sand - The Geology of Our Local Beaches"
Presenters: Dr. Lindley Hanson, Geology Professor, Salem State U.
Abbot Public Library, lower level meeting room
235 Pleasant Street, Marblehead, MA 01915
Free and Open to the Public.
Have you ever noticed that our local beaches can vary from largely mud, sand, gravel or sometimes boulders? And that each beach takes on a different form? What causes these variations? How and why does each beach respond differently to storm activity? Dr. Lindley Hanson, from Salem State University Geological Science Department, will describe and explain the array of beaches on the North Shore to address the variability and dynamics of our local beaches. In addition, she will show evidence of a higher sea level in our past and discuss the future of our beaches with expected sea level rise.
Thank you, Dr. Sara Grady, presenter on"Horseshoe Crabs - The Ancient Blue Bloods" and Ted Maney, presenter on "On the Rocks - Life Underwater".
