Adult class -- Geology of New Mexico
The landscape of New Mexico tells the story of time and changing environments. Oceans once covered the state, camels and saber tooth cats roamed, and volcanoes erupted as recently as 3000 years ago (and some are still considered to be active). Do you know what New Mexico and East Africa have in common? Have you wondered about the geological history of the Bisti Badlands, El Morro, or the Mogollon Wilderness? This one-session course will teach you to "read the record in the rocks" and learn the amazing story of the unique and dynamic geology of New Mexico.
Jayne Aubele is Educator/Geologist at the museum. Her focus is volcanoes, and she has mapped and researched the geology of New Mexico and the Southwest as well as the Moon, Mars and Venus. She has authored or co-authored many technical articles and popular books/chapters about N.M. geology, including the Field Guide to the Sandia Mountians; and was geologic technical advisor and on-camera geologist for the KNME-TV programs Sleeping Monsters, Sacred Fires: Volcanoes of New Mexico, and The Sandias.
