Presented by:  Steve Goldberg

Steve Goldberg received a Ph.D. in geology from the University of Oregon, Department of Geology/Center for Volcanology, and served on the geology faculty at the University of North Carolina for more than a decade.  He specialized in the geochemistry and geochronology of igneous and metamorphic rocks.  Steve then entered government service, serving more than twenty years as administrator, manager, and chief scientist in nuclear counterterrorism and counterproliferation.

The Geology of Newberry National Monument: Introducing New Educational Aids

This presentation will introduce new slides and graphics intended to explain basic principles of geology and volcanology as they apply to Central Oregon, along with slides that explain the geology of the Newberry National Monument.  The presentation is estimated to last about 1.5 hours and is intended to help interpretive rangers, forest service staff, and others who will be explaining geological features to the public.  There will be ample opportunity to ask questions to a geologist, and take notes on specific features of interest.  The educational aids are small laminated posters that will be made available at Lava Butte and Paulina Visitor Centers, and the presentation will be in the form of projected Powerpoint slides.­
