to Meet August 11

The chapter is honored to have as guest speaker Vic Baker, Professor of Planetary Sciences and Geosciences, Univ. of Arizona-Tucson. In early July this year, Dr. Baker was the keynote speaker at an international geomorphology conference held in Barnaul, Siberia, that concerned ice-age megaflooding. His talk to us, “Ice-Age Megaflooding in Eurasia,” stems from that conference. With five decades of Ice Age Floods research, especially in central and eastern Washington, Dr. Baker is one of the leading experts on this subject, and a great story teller. Don’t miss this one! The program is free and open to the public. For an overview of the Ice Age Floods, please see and For more information on the Ice Age Floods Institute, see
