Whidbey Island glacial stratigraphy series begun

I have published the first in a series of field trips to Whidbey Island beaches that expose late-Pleistocene glacial and interglacial sediments. The first one visits the west shore of Useless Bay and Double Bluff, where you can also see fabulous liquifaction features interpreted to result from earthquakes along the South Whidbey fault.

The next trip will go to Blower’s Bluff. I have visited and gotten photos, and will write it up soon. Please subscribe to this website if you want to know when I have posted it.
