Colorado Springs Science Center Project

 

 

 

Dr. Christine Siddoway is a professor of geology at Colorado College.  Her current geological field research is conducted right up the road in the Rocky Mountains but also takes her to Antarctica.  Dr. Siddoway’s scientific pursuit is best described as understanding human civilizations (past and present) when considered from the standpoint of their geological context.

The Mediterranean region offers an extraordinary record of catastrophic geological events that have had both disastrous and beneficial consequences for civilization. Oral and written accounts – the subject of studies in History, Religion, Classics and Literature -- are corroborated by physical records from Geology and Archaeology (rocks and ruins). Science on Tap will examine physical records, from the Mediterranean, that provide a record of unimaginable floods, destructive earthquakes, incendiary eruptions, and rapid environmental change, in parallel with a selection of events in human history that are represented in myth and in classical literature. Understood within the contemporary scientific frameworks of plate tectonic theory and integrated climate science, the conversation may shed light on the vulnerability and resiliency of societies to instantaneous geological change.
