SPEAKER: Dr. Jim Lacefield; Retired adjunct professor of biology and Earth sciences, University of North Alabama, Florence
The land of Mississippi has been shaped by major geological
events over the past
half-billion years, but evidence about some of these transformative events now lies buried far beneath the surface of the land. Alabama's rocks contain surprising details that can provide clues about several of these missing chapters of Mississippi's geological history.
