The 2022 Field Conference of Pennsylvania Geologists will examine aspects of the glaciation of northwestern Pennsylvania, including beginning to develop an absolute chronology, as well as drainage evolution in Mercer, Lawrence, and Butler Counties. A number of Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL) and cosmogenic dating sites will be visited and their context will be discussed toward an understanding of those themes. Day 1 is planned to visit sites in Crawford, Erie, and Warren Counties. Day 2 will travel to the southern part of the glaciated region.
Thank you and we are looking forward to another great conference.
