Earth Science Week - Bad Movie Night

As part of National Earth Science Week, the Department of Earth and Environmental Science presents for its BAD MOVIE NIGHT "Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!", a horrible film that has an equally horrible depiction of science, specifically, meteorology, astronomy and pretty much anything that is logical. Siobahn Morgan will provide commentary concerning the bad science, as well as general bad acting and special effects. Free, but not for the faint of heart or anyone who can't tolerate bad movies.

Earth and Environmental Science Seminar

"The Winneshiek Lagerstatte and Decorah Impact Structure - An Unusual Setting for Exceptional Fossil Preservation", by Huaibao (Paul) Liu, University of Iowa, IIHR, Iowa Geological Survey. There will be discussion of recent findings in northeastern Iowa, including fossils of large (2-meter long) sea creatures associated with a recently recognized impact structure around the Decorah area.

Earth and Environmental Science Seminar

"The Geology and Natural History of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem," will be presented by Chad Heinzel, associate professor of earth and environmental science, and students who took part in the field course in August, which involved an exploration and study of Yellowstone National Park and surrounding areas. There will be information about the trip, as well as student experiences on this trip.

Sunday at the Quarry

The Earth Science Department, in conjunction with BMC Aggregates, is holding the 15th Annual Sunday at the Raymond Quarry in Waterloo. This event is a chance for the public to get an up-close look at what the inside of a quarry looks like and to learn more about the earth sciences. 

Attendees will have the opportunity to visit the working face of the quarry, be led on geology tours and visit presentations from area organizations including the Iowa Geological Survey Programs and Publications, the Iowa Flood Center Programs, the Black Hawk Soil and Water District Programs for the Rural and Urban Sectors and the U.S. Geological Survey Programs. Participants will also have the opportunity to collect mineral, rock and fossil samples from the site to take home.
