Mapping The Ice Age Geology Of The White Mountains, New Hampshire

    Improve listing Presented by

Woody Thompson will draw upon his 30 years of field work in the White Mountains to explain how geologic mapping has been used to unravel the Ice Age geology of northern New Hampshire.  He will discuss the use of topographic maps, aerial photographs, and recent laser imaging of the Earth's surface (LiDAR) to better understand the regional geology.  The evidence of late-glacial climate changes in the White Mountains will be related to actual features that can be seen on the land surface. 

Presented as part of the Museum’s summer exhibition: Wayfinding: Maps of the White Mountains. The Summer 2020 Speaker Series was made possible with support from New Hampshire Humanities, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Humanities. Learn more at
