    "It’s about Time: Forty Years of Geologic Work in the Grand Canyon- Rocky Mountain Region"

    "Understandings of Geologic Time and Earth processes are assuming increasing importance as human populations exceed 7 billion on our small planet. Cognition of geologic time provides the vital and difficult- to- comprehend connection between human time scales, societal needs, and the million-year heartbeat of the Earth. Grand Canyon, the Colorado Plateau, and the Rocky Mountains provide important geologic laboratories; this talk describes the main contributions made by one geologist in his > 40-year-effort to study the rocks and landscapes of this iconic geologic region. The themes of the talk are deep time and the supercontinent cycle as recorded in the Grand Canyon region." Karl Karlstrom
