Description

From massive caldera eruptions to lava flows that can be found throughout the state, Oregon’s volcanic history has played an important role in shaping the stunning landscapes and waterways of the high desert. In this presentation, Dr. Daniele McKay, geologist and adjunct instructor in the Department of Earth Sciences at the University of Oregon, will explore geologic events that have created the stunning landscapes of central and eastern Oregon.
