Paul Bauer presents a geo-photo-journey down the northern Rio Grande, emphasizing the river hydrogeology and the evolution of the sublime landscape, during his presentation, “Down the Rio Grande: A Paddler’s Perspective of Rocks and Rapids,” at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 9 at Fuller Lodge.
The talk is part of the Los Alamos Historical Society’s 2012-2013 lecture series, “History and Science.”
Bauer shares his thoughts on the birth and adolescence of the river, where it gets its water and its system of springs.
He explores the geologic setting of rapids along the river, the Tertiary battles between water and lava, and tidbits of riverside human history as diverse as gold mining and astronaut training.
Bauer is a principal geologist and associate director at the New Mexico Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources at New Mexico Tech.
He received a doctorate in geology from New Mexico Tech in 1988.
He served as manager of the state’s Geologic Mapping Program for 12 years, and was program coordinator for the New Mexico Decision-Makers Field Conferences for 10 years, a program designed to bridge the gap between earth scientists and policy makers.
He has spent much of the last 30 years investigating the geology and hydrogeology of north-central New Mexico.
