    Winter Lecture: The 35-Million Year Geological History of the Bay

    Join us on Thursday, January 25, at 7 p.m. at the Annapolis Maritime Museum for our third winter lecture:

    The 35-Million Year Geological History of the Bay: How an Extra-terrestrial Event Created Toda’s Chesapeake Bay

    Topic Summary: 35-million years ago an asteroid blasted an enormous crater into the continental shelf 200 km southeast of Washington D.C., creating a long-lasting topographic depression which likely influenced the eventual location of the Chesapeake Bay. River diversion, disrupted coastal aquifers, ground instability and land subsidence are all active processes attributable to the influence of the impact crater, which is now buried 300-500 meters beneath the southern part of the Chesapeake Bay.

    Presenter Jeff Watkins is the managing partner of JX3 Energy, a Maryland-based energy company developing wind, solar and coal projects in western Maryland.

    Tickets may be purchased at the door: $10; or free for Museum members First Mate and above.
