Abstract

Prof. Richard Little hosts this 45-minute program, filled with air views, diagrams, animations, spectacular glacial locations from Canada to Alaska, some humor, and interviews with important geologists, investigating such things as groundwater, varved clay, concretions, sand dunes, pingos, and the nature and destruction of the Lake Hitchcock dam in central Connecticut. You will see how Lake Hitchcock was the most important event to shape the natural and human history of the Connecticut Valley.
