Wenatchee Valley Erratics Chapter of the Ice Age Floods Institute to Meet

Wenatchee Valley Erratics Chapter of the Ice Age Floods Institute will meet at 7:00 p.m., Tuesday, June 13, at the Wenatchee Valley Museum, 127 South Mission, Wenatchee. “Spokane Valley’s 16,000 year old Glacial Lake Missoula outburst flood” 16,000 years ago a single megaflood deposit filled the upper reaches of glacial Lake Columbia to a depth of 1300 feet, extending from Rathdrum Prairie southwest to Fort Spokane. As glacial Lake Columbia filled with flood sediments, rising water levels breached the southern shoreline of glacial Lake Columbia, surging into the Channeled Scabland tracts. What is the implication of this megaflood in relation to subsequent Missoula floods that occurred between 16,000 and 13,000 years ago? Are numerous flood deposits located near the confluence of the Spokane and Columbia rivers the result of flooding from under the Columbia ice sheet lobe? Our speaker, retired geologist Mike McCollum, will discuss these radical ideas, developed with his EWU geologist wife, Linda. The program is free and open to the public. For overviews of the Ice Age Floods and more information on the Ice Age Floods Institute, please see our website: http://www.iafi.org; http://www.hugefloods.com; and quadricopter videos of Ice Age features, http://www.brucebjornstad.com.
