T100 top Wetland Science: Intersection of Hydrogeology, Geomorphology, Ecology, and Computer Modeling
GSA Hydrogeology Division; USDI-Geological Survey; Montana State University
Richard S. Sojda, USDI-Geological Survey, Bozeman, MT; Brian L. McGlynn, Montana State University, Bozeman, MT; Donald O. Rosenberry, U.S. Geological Survey, Lakewood, CO
We will explore the intersection of geologic disciplines that contributes to an understanding of wetland ecology. Papers should focus on integrative methodologies and might explore wetland geomorphology, soils, landscape hydrology, hydroperiods, plant and wildlife communities, and computer modeling. ORAL
Hydrogeology; Quaternary Geology/Geomorphology; Environmental Geoscience
T101 top Erosion, Exhumation, and Uplift: Complex Interactions and Feedback Mechanisms Between Tectonics and Geomorphology
GSA Quaternary Geology and Geomorphology Division; GSA Structural Geology and Tectonics Division
Kurt L. Frankel, University of California, Los Angeles, CA; Bernard Guest, University of California, Los Angeles, CA
This session will investigate complex links and feedback mechanisms associated with fluvial and glacial erosion and orogenic processes from a multidisciplinary approach. The necessary thresholds needed for these interactions will be a primary focus. ORAL and POSTER
Quaternary Geology/Geomorphology; Tectonics; Remote Sensing/Geographic Info System
T102 top Geological Mapping: Key to Successful Management of Water and Land Resources (Posters)
GSA Quaternary Geology and Geomorphology Division; GSA Hydrogeology Division; GSA Engineering Geology Division; U.S. Geological Survey; Association of American State Geologists
Richard C. Berg, Illinois State Geological Survey, Champaign, IL; Peter T. Lyttle, U.S. Geological Survey, Reston, VA; Harvey Thorleifson, Geological Survey of Canada, Ottawa
Geological mapping is a key to environmental protection and management of water and land resources. This session will highlight innovative mapping products that are being used by an increasingly broad range of users. POSTER
Quaternary Geology/Geomorphology; Hydrogeology; Environmental Geoscience
T103 top Comprehensive Landscape Analysis-A Predictive Tool for Mapping Surficial Deposits and Their Environmental Attributes
GSA Sedimentary Geology Division
Kathleen M. Farrell, Raleigh, NC; C. William Zanner, University of Nebraska, Lincoln, NE
This session will cover research that integrates predictive, geomorphic maps derived from electronic spatial data (GIS); subsurface investigations intended to map surficial sedimentary facies; and environmental attributes such as geologic processes, hazards, hydrologic characteristics, or geochemical signatures. ORAL and POSTER
Quaternary Geology/Geomorphology; Stratigraphy; Environmental Geoscience
T104 top "Noah's Flood" and the Late Quaternary Geological and Archaeological History of the Black Sea and Adjacent Basins
Avalon Institute of Applied Science
Valentina Yanko-Hombach, Avalon Institute of Applied Science, Winnipeg, MB; Jim Teller, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, MB
New data on the Late Quaternary geology and archaeology of the Black Sea and adjacent basins will be presented, and the hypothesized link of Noah's Flood to the Black Sea basin will be discussed. ORAL
Quaternary Geology/Geomorphology; Paleoclimatology/Paleoceanography; Archaeological Geology
T105 top Ecological Implications of Headwater Channel Processes

Michael K. Liquori, University of Washington, Seattle, WA
In this session, we will explore the relationship between hydrology, geomorphology, and ecology, particularly as it may guide land-use management. Authors seeking to express conceptual ideas, theoretical musings, and/or detailed analyses of data are encouraged to submit abstracts to this highly interdisciplinary discussion. ORAL and POSTER
Environmental Geoscience; Quaternary Geology/Geomorphology
T106 top Quaternary History and Stratigraphy of the Pacific Northwest
GSA Sedimentary Geology Division
Kathy Goetz Troost, University of Washington, Seattle, WA; Tim Walsh, Washington Division of Geology, Olympia, WA; Ralph Haugerud, University of Washington, Seattle, WA
This session seeks to present the latest findings of research on the Quaternary history and stratigraphy of the Pacific Northwest, including chronology, palynology, magnetostratigraphy, Quaternary deformation, landscape development, glacial processes and deposition, provenance studies, and geologic mapping. ORAL and POSTER
Quaternary Geology/Geomorphology
T107 top Records of Quaternary Landscape Change in the Rocky Mountains
GSA Quaternary Geology and Geomorphology Division
Benjamin J.C. Laabs, University of Wisconsin, Madison, WI; Jeffrey S. Munroe, Middlebury College, Middlebury, VT
Increasingly focused field investigations and expanding application of newly developed methodologies continue to refine details of Quaternary landscape change in the Rocky Mountains. This session will provide a forum for presenting results of recent studies of the interactions of geomorphic processes and landscape evolution in this region. ORAL
Quaternary Geology/Geomorphology
T108 top Sedimentary Records of Rapid Ice Sheet Decay and Intensive Ice-Calving Events
GSA Sedimentary Geology Division
Amir Mokhtari Fard, American University of Beirut, Beirut, Lebanon
This session will focus on the investigation in the sedimentary records of Pleistocene as well as present ice sheets, ice caps, and large Himalayan glaciers to reveal the deglaciation mechanisms under rapid ice sheet retreat and intensive ice-calving events. ORAL
Quaternary Geology/Geomorphology; Sediments, Clastic; Stratigraphy
T109 top New Insights into the Origins of Glacial Landscapes
Staci L. Goetz-Ensminger, Northwest Missouri State University, Maryville, MO; Nelson R. Ham, St. Norbert College, De Pere, WI; Jeffrey C. Strasser, Augustana College, Rock Island, IL
This session will focus on interrelated glaciological and geological processes of modern and ancient glaciers and ice sheets in an effort to develop a better understanding of the origins of glacial landscapes. ORAL and POSTER
Quaternary Geology/Geomorphology
