Carleton Connects: Cameron Davidson and Alaskan tectonics

Wed, October 25, 2023 • 10:00am - 11:00am (1h)
Professor Cameron Davidson

Thanks to plate tectonics, North America has been acquiring large chunks of real estate along its western margin for millions of years. Professor Cameron Davidson will show how modern geochronology is transforming our understanding of Alaska’s land masses and how scientific progress relies on the application of new tools to so-called settled scientific questions.

The webinar begins at 10:00 a.m. Central on Wednesday, October 25. Register via Zoom.
