Description

Ancient Underwater Forest


Dr. Kristine DeLong

Join LSU Department of Geography & Anthropology Associate Professor Kristine DeLong as she shares her research on an underwater cypress forest discovered off the coast of Alabama. DeLong dived the underwater forest, excavated it and analyzed samples of the wood and ancient pollen to find out how old the ancient forest is. What she found offers a new look into a much colder, windier climate in this region than today.

Doors open at 5 p.m. for networking and light refreshments, and the talk will start at 6 p.m. Remember, people of all ages are welcome, so please spread the word and join us for a fun and informative night.

For more info, please call 225-578-3870.
