quote [ CWU's Nick Zentner from his home in Ellensburg, Washington during the global coronavirus pandemic. ]
Professor Nick Zentner is presenting a geological history of the Pacific northwest, livestreamed every day on Youtube. Nick is one of those teachers you wish you had, who knows his subject deeply, loves it, and is hugely entertaining as he passes that knowledge on to you. Material is largely taken from a series of public lectures he gives every year, and covers topics including the Yellowstone hotspot, Columbia flood basalts, the formation of the Cascades, and the many exotic terranes composing the Pacific northwest.
