The landscape of Martha’s Vineyard and its geological story are strongly intertwined. From the coastal beaches and sandbars of Katama, to the cliffs of Gay Head, from the central plain of the Correllus State Forest to the rolling hills of Chilmark, all those features have been shaped by different forces through the island’s geological life.
In this course, led by Dr. Giorgio Caramanna, we will explore the Island in terms of how its current landscape has been created by ancient geological events and how this landscape will likely evolve in the future under the action of the current natural events.
We will also understand how the specific geological structure of the Vineyard influences one of its most precious and vulnerable resources: the groundwater.
Join us in this travel through time to better understand the natural history of our unique Island.
