Location: Stanford University
Anyone wishing to attend the lecture only is welcome at no cost.
This will be the 337th meeting since 1954.
Does the Patuxent Formation in the Pensacola Mountains, Antarctica (pictured above) correlate with the Kingston Peak Formation in Death Valley, California? This is one of several tests proposed by Eldridge Moores in his 1991 paper Southwest US-east Antarctic (SWEAT) connection: A hypothesis. Jim Calzia has completed this and other tests of this fantastic hypothesis; you are invited to hear him SWEAT the details at the next PGS Meeting May 1, 2001.
Jim Calzia is a Research Geologist at the U.S. Geological Survey in Menlo Park, Calif. He has spent most of his 28-year career studying the geology and mineral resources of the southwest US, especially the Death Valley region. He received his PhD in Geology in 1990 from U.C. Davis; Eldridge Moores was his PhD advisor!
