Shorelines of the World  

Coastlines or shorelines bound all our land masses - or do they bind the oceans? We will begin with a tour of some coasts around the world: Ireland, New Zealand, Mexico’s Baja and Yucatan Peninsulas, Cape Cod, and the coast of BC and the Pacific Northwest. Then we will see how the processes and energy at the coastal boundaries shape their nature: crustal motions, changing sea level, waves, beach deposits - all shape and reshape our coastlines. Linda Khandro, MAT, is a geologist, with over 25 years teaching college earth and space sciences in the Seattle area - astronomy, astrobiology, environmental science, geology, meteorology and oceanography.
