Glaciers Were Cool in Ohio

Saturday, August 3, 2019
10:30 a.m.-Noon
Presented by: Todd Stephenson

This class will touch on the topic of climate change in Ohio during its recent geologic past. The presentation will introduce the topic of glaciers and provide evidence for the presence of multiple episodes of glacial activity in Ohio (maps/landform pictures, samples, fossils, videos). There will be a short ‘CSI-like’ presentation on “The Burning Tree Mastodon” found in 1989 in Licking County, Ohio. Finally, Ohio’s glaciers had an impact on soil formation and how they directly influenced the location and construction of earthwork sites like Fort Ancient and many others found in Ohio.

About the Presenter
A retired petroleum geologist executive who spent 36 years in the oil and gas business with assignments in U.S., Canada, Europe, Africa and South America, Todd was born and raised in Kings Mills, Ohio, and earned a B.S. in Geology from Ohio University and a M.S. Geology from the University of Cincinnati.  A member of the Dry Dredgers, a local fossil collecting club affiliated with UC, as well as a member of the Dayton Society of Natural History, Todd was also a Boy Scout leader for many years and was very involved in STEM educational activities in Texas and Oklahoma. He didn’t realize until college that he lived near some of the best fossil beds, some of the best glacial geology deposits, and some the best archeological sites found anywhere in the world!
