Topic for Fall 2017: Geology of the Driftless Area
An exploration of the bedrock geology, mineralogy, geomorphology, and hydrogeology of the Driftless Area. The Driftless Area is an ancient landscape, unique in that it was not carved out by the the glaciations that have sculpted most of the landscape of the Upper Midwest. We will investigate features such as the ancient Wyalusing River, the mineral deposits responsible for Wisconsin’s nickname of “The Badger State,” and the hydrology and geochemistry that makes this area a premier trout fishery.
