Tuesday Talks at BCP -- Volcan Baru (Is it really dormant?)


Event details

58ffa8f8d2cc9_volcanbaru.jpg.6ea7dec85d550bcfeace24253d384dee.jpgTuesday, May 2  Baru’s Eruptions and Aftermath - A Geologist’s Observations. Volcan Baru,  even as a “dead" volcano, looms ominously on our western horizon. Will it ever erupt again, could it?  Dr. Paul Myers retired geology professor (University of Wisconsin, 1968-1997), with considerable volcano experience will share his ”observations” of Baru and  what they may reveal of its violent past,  even what they might mean for the future.  Why doesn’t Baru “look like” a typical volcano? Why no lava flows?  What’s the origin of all the steep-walled terraces and deep, rugged canyons?  No matter how good you are - in the Boquete area, no one is an “expert”.  More questions than answers. Dr. Myers will distribute hand-outs.
