May 1 - 15, 2014
Patrick Abbott has a Ph.D. in geology from the University of Texas at Austin. He is a long-time Professor of Geology at San Diego State University. Patís research on reconstructing ancient continental positions has focused on the region stretching from coastal Mexico to coastal Alaska. His college textbook, Natural Disasters, published by McGraw-Hill, is in its ninth edition, and discusses in detail the plate tectonics, earthquakes, climate change, and volcanic history of the Pacific region. He appeared in the TV series The Real Gilliganís Island on TBS and contributed to a History Channel program in spring 2012 on geological and meteorological phenomena. Pat will lecture on the plate tectonics and volcanic activity in the areas visited on this cruise, and why these regional phenomena are significant on a global scale.
