Summary and Info
About The ProductPublished by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Field Trip Guidebooks Series. In 1933, the Sixteenth Session of the International Geological Congress included an excursion into the Channeled Scabland that was prepared by J Harlen Bretz of the University of Chicago. Professor Bretz's work on the Channeled Scabland covered over 40 years. Now, we meet in 1989 on the same subject to see the evidence and vindication of his work, and to examine new research on this important event in Quaternary geology.
