2nd VIRTUAL Underwater in Salem Sound Lecture:
Geologic History and Evolution of Salem Sound

Presenter: Dr. Lindley Hanson - Professor Emerita of Geology, 
Salem State University

We welcome Dr. Lindley Hanson back to shine light on this always popular topic. In fact, she was our first presenter for the Underwater in Salem Sound lecture series in 2013. So many people attended that she had to return the next week to re-present the lecture for the crowd we had to turned away. 

Dr. Hanson will guide us through the geology of our place – Salem Sound and bordering lowlands. Do you know why Marblehead and Salem Harbors are northeast trending while the Danvers River estuary is southeast trending? Or why we our coastline is defined by rocky pocket beaches and outcroppings of volcanic rock? Come prepared for a fascinating evening learning about geological history with contemporary insight.
