Virtual Discontinuity Mapping using Digital Photogrammetry 2010-2011 Field Trips: Part II of the popular Olympic Peninsula Field Trip Series is tentatively scheduled for the weekend of Sept. 9-11, 2011. The field trip is being organized by members of AWG (led by Wendy Gerstel) and AEG (led by Tom Badger). This trip will focus on the western Olympic Peninsula, its glacial history, tectonics, coastal erosion, and associated land, river, and road management challenges. We'll look at evidence for repeated alpine glacial advances, tectonic uplift and incision, coastal retreat, and channel migration of the large rivers draining the core of the Olympic Mountains. We're hoping to visit a very large engineered log jam on the Hoh River. We'll traverse landslides from head scarp to toe, as well as walk some telltale sections of coastal stratigraphy. Come explore some of the last wild places and learn about the dynamic geologic processes that created them. Come prepared to get wet, dirty, and tired (and happy), and to discuss solutions and hypotheses to classic PNW geologic problems. We are trying to make this second field trip to the Olympic Peninsula more rustic, hands-on, and self-reliant (and less expensive) than Part 1. We are hoping that more members, as well as more students will be able to attend. We will be staying at the National Park campground located at Kalaloch, drive time 4-5 hours from Seattle. We will have a portion of the campground all to ourselves, and we will reserve a block of premium tent sites right above the beach. Small cabins with kitchenettes will also be available. Attendees will be responsible for their own transportation on the trip but we will organize carpools. Attendees will be responsible for their own food and cookware, but we are also researching the use of the campground’s facilities for food preparation. Depending on cost and logistics, we may have a catered meal for one of the two nights. The planning is in the preliminary stage. More details to come. We hope you can attend.
