42. The Geology Of The Grand Canyon
Geologists have this question pretty much wrapped up, aside from some missing layers, or unconformities, that have been completely eroded away.
The Geology of the Grand Canyon

Slopes of Dox Formation near Unkar Creek
How was it formed?
The truth is that no one knows for sure though there are some pretty good guesses. The chances are that a number of processes combined to create the views that you see in todays Grand Canyon. The most powerful force to have an impact on the Grand Canyon is erosion, primarily by water (and ice) and second by wind. Other forces that contributed to the Canyon's formation are the course of the Colorado River itself, vulcanism, continental drift and slight variations in the earths orbit which in turn causes variations in seasons and climate. Water seems to have had the most impact basically because our planet has lots of it and it is always on the move. Many people cannot understand how water can have such a profound impact considering that the Canyon is basically located in a desert. This is one of the biggest reasons that water has such a big impact here. Because the soil in the Grand Canyon is baked by the sun it tends to become very hard and cannot absorb water when the rains to come. When it does rain the water tends to come down in torrents which only adds to the problem. The plants that grow in the Grand Canyon tend to have very shallow root systems so that they can grab as much water as possible on those rare occasions when it does rain. Unfortunately these root systems do nothing to deter erosion by holding the soil in place. Now you've got lots of water, no place for it to go, but down to the

Welcome to the Department of Geology Web page!
Our geology program focuses on undergraduate geology majors, and we take pride in our emphasis on field geology. In addition to weekend field trips with most courses, we also run two field trips and two field courses every year, one of which, summer Field Geology (344), is the capstone course and is taught in Utah. Geology majors are strongly encouraged to pursue at least one research project in collaboration with a faculty member, all of whom have active research programs. Students majoring in geology choose among four emphases: 1) Professional Geology, 2) Professional Hydrogeology, 3) Liberal Arts, and 4) Secondary Earth Science Education. Our graduates are well prepared for the job market and for graduate school, and we have an outstanding record of placing graduates in both of these arenas. Please use the links on this page to investigate our program and to contact us with questions. Thanks for your interest in our program.

California's Geology
California's remarkable geology is the result of volcanic and tectonic activity. Its majestic mountains were shaped by glaciers during the ice ages as well as by wind and rain. The scenic coastline of California is continually shaped by the pounding waves of the Pacific Ocean. California has a wealth of mineral resources, including the rich soil of the Central Valley, the gold of the Sierra, and oil off the coast and in various locations across the state.

Flood Geology
"Lord, Lord! methought what pain it was to drown:
What dreadful noise of water in mine ears!
What sights of ugly death within mine eyes!"
- William Shakespeare,
King Richard III
Problems with a Global Flood
This article presents a list of questions that the story of Noah's Ark and a global flood leave unanswered and probably unanswerable, such as: How did all the fish survive? and, When did granite batholiths form?
Flood Stories from around the World
While flood myths are common to practically every culture on the planet, most of them are significantly different in detail. This article describes nearly a hundred flood myths originating from cultures all over the globe.
Sun Pictures and the Noah's Ark Hoax
In 1993, CBS aired a purported documentary called The Incredible Discovery of Noah's Ark . The show's producers, however, were the victims of a hoax.
"Man Tracks?": The Paluxy River Footprint Controversy
For many years, creationists claimed that a set of human tracks were found alongside dinosaur tracks in the Paluxy riverbed near Glen Rose, Texas. However, due in large part to the diligent investigative and scientific work of Glen Kuban, even most creationists now doubt the authenticity of the "man tracks".
"Polystrate" Fossils
Creationists and catastrophists have attempted to justify a global flood by claiming that there are fossils cutting through many geological strata. A number of so-called "polystrate" fossils are examined here.
