About the presentation

Most of us don't think about how the geology may affect our lives.  We don't think about what aspects of geology we might consider in decisions about where we want to live.  I intend to show: national climate change issues through a geologic lens; and how local geology impacts on daily life, using Ottawa's setting as an example.
