Geology of the Oneida Carry
May 31, 2018 at 7 pm
The region of the Oneida Carry is one of the few easily traveled routes from the east coast to the interior of the United States. The Mohawk River has carved this pathway through the bedrock of the Appalachian Plateau that has aided transportation and migration for thousands of years. Fort Stanwix Volunteer Bob Allers will describe the geologic processes that have modified the region and left the landforms we see today. Local rock types will be identified and interpretations of how and where they were formed will be presented. Maps, diagrams, and models will be used to show plate tectonic activity during the Paleozoic Era. Weathering, erosion, and deposition by water and glaciers during the Pleistocene Ice Age will complete the descriptions of modifications that left us with the carry as it appears at the present.
