When I agreed to do a TED Talk earlier this year, I assumed that I could simply do a short lecture on a geology topic of my choice. But after visiting with the Yakima TEDx committee, I realized that they were wanting more about me...and less about the geology. Not easy for me, but here's the 18 minute talk:
For a solid decade, we've had great luck with weather on our field trips. Ellensburg Chapter of the Ice Age Floods Institute. Well....that luck has run out. Our Ritzville trip has been snowed out - and we have moved the date to Sunday, Nov 19. Sorry for the inconvenience!
We have a new 'Lake Chelan' episode in the works for Season 2 of 'Nick On The Rocks' - the PBS geology series which airs on Seattle's KCTS station. Look for new episodes in January 2018.
In this little video, I'm talking to animator Donald in Portland. He will be creating an effective animation that shows the surprising glacial story behind popular Lake Chelan in north central Washington.
The mastermind behind 'Nick On The Rocks' is CWU's Chris Smart. He films on location...and then spends countless hours editing the episodes. I think this new segment in our 'Rock Columns' is some of his best work. Maybe you agree?
Finished product by the animators in Portland. Rock columns forming in cooling lava. Will be used in a new episode of 'Nick On The Rocks'. KCTS9 in Seattle. PBS.
