Glacial Geology Field Trip & Publication

Learn about the Chippewa Moraine Ice Age Reserve through new publication


Kent Syverson, professor of geology at UW-Eau Claire, has written a Wisconsin Geological and Natural History Survey Bulletin (#103) and colored map describing the landscape and glacial history of Chippewa County. The publication will help people understand how a glacial geologist gathers and interprets data in order to understand the geologic history "puzzle." 

The bulletin (which includes a colored 1:100,000-scale geologic map and cross sections) is available from the Wisconsin Geological and Natural History Survey [WGNHS] for $15 plus shipping and handling. This publication would be ideal for people interested in the glacial history of Wisconsin.

Unfolded copies of the colored geologic map also are available for purchase.
