The Glacial Development in Western Whatcom County. Join Doug Clark as he presents early results of his newest research project on the glacial development of western Whatcom County. The story is a fascinating tale of glacier advance and retreat interspersed with dramatic sea level rise and fall, all during a short period at the end of the last major ice age. This exceptional event shaped most of the landscape of the Whatcom lowlands and exemplifies the relevance of geology in under- standing the landscape in which we live.Doug Clark is an Associate Professor of Geology at Western Washington University, and has been teaching at WWU for the past 15 years. His research interests include processes related to mountain landscapes, glacia- tion and climate change, landslides, and active tectonics. His research areas include the mountains of central Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and western North America.
