Where: Salida Community Center, 305 F St (corner of 3rd and F), Salida
Topic: The Story of Earth, Part 2
Speaker: Scott Adams
Geologist Scott Adams will present part 2 of his lecture on “The Story of Earth” at the Central Colorado Humanists’ Sunday Science meeting on October 5 at the Salida Community Center.
Please join the Humanists for this free, public, monthly Sunday Science meeting. Light refreshments will be served. (Please bring some to share if you can.)
“The Story of Earth” is the story of planet Earth’s origins and its evolution to where it is today. Whereas most Earth histories concentrate on only the last 12% of Earth’s existence – after life became abundant – and thus focus on life’s evolution, this story starts when Planet Earth formed, and tells about the coevolution of Earth’s geosphere, biosphere and atmosphere.
Scott attended the University of Kansas, obtaining a BS degree with majors in geology and mathematics, and an MS degree in geophysics. He pursued a 31-year career as a petroleum geophysicist, geologist, exploration program manager and reservoir manager with Chevron Corporation, with numerous domestic and international assignments. Scott and his wife Diana retired to Salida in 2006.
Sunday Science is presented on the first Sunday of each month by the Central Colorado Humanists. Its mission is to enhance our understanding of the earth and universe based on scientific principles and inquiry.
