Geologic History of San Luis Valley: From Deep Time to Present

Colorado Field Institute Hosts Winter lecture on the
Geologic History of San Luis Valley: From Deep Time to Present
by Bob Kirkham

The Colorado Field institute invites the public to a lecture by Bob Kirkham, local geologist, to be held at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, January 22nd, 2019 in Room 130 of Porter Hall, on the Adams State University Campus, 208 Edgemont, Alamosa, Colorado.
Bob will synthesize the amazing and complex story of the geologic history of the San Luis Valley in a lecture intended to be understandable by the general public, students of geology, and professional geologists. The lecture is based upon a chapter in a forthcoming book titled “The San Luis Valley: Its Geology, Ecology, and Human History”.
The San Luis Valley lies within the active Rio Grande Rift, and the San Juan Mountains are the eroded remnant of a huge, volcanic field that extended across much of the Southern Rocky Mountains from about 35 to 23 million years ago. What about earlier in the Earth’s history?
From about 500 to 310 million years ago, much of the San Luis Valley was episodically submerged beneath a sea filled with abundant marine organisms like crinoids, trilobites, and brachiopods. Approximately 315 to 290 million years ago, an element of the Ancestral Rocky Mountains called the Uncompahgre-San Luis Uplift rose up where today’s valley is.
Later, about 100 to 75 million years ago, the Western Interior Seaway spread across the region during the Late Cretaceous. Organic-rich, marine sediments deposited by this sea today are major sources of oil and gas elsewhere. Does this mean San Luis Valley has untapped potential as a petroleum- producing area, or did another ancient mountain uplift remove those rocks.
How do geologists know the ancient mountains existed or that the oceans once covered the area? These questions, and many others, will be addressed during the lecture.
Bob Kirkham is a registered and certified professional geologist who has lived in San Luis Valley with his wife Lois for nearly four decades. He is the author of over 120 published geologic maps, reports, journal articles, books, and abstracts. Bob worked for the Colorado Geological Survey and Colorado Mined Land Reclamation Division for 22 years, and has been the principal of GeoLogical Solutions for the past 16 years. He recently was one of only 60 geologists from around the world who were invited to attend and lecture at a geology conference on the shore of the Dead Sea in Israel.

The Colorado Field Institute is a nonprofit corporation organized in 2005 to promote greater stewardship of the natural and cultural resources within the San Luis Valley. For more information on this event, email us at coloradofieldinstitute@gmail.com.
