Quest for a Gelisol- Re-envisioned—Kris Osterloh

For 2018, I will lead the charge to organize the inaugural climb. We tentatively plan to find a north face route up Mt. Hood around mid-August. This is a dangerous activity, technical skills will be needed. OSSS will not provide liability coverage, participants will be responsible for their own training, health, and safety. Please contact me if you are interested in helping me organize the Quest for a Gelisol.

Invitation from Pat O’Grady—Rimrock Draw Rockshelter Archaeological Dig

Last summer, during our discussions with these experts in zoo-, paleo-, and geoarchaeology we found that the way soil scientists understand sediment movement and soil development could be of great benefit to interpretation of the cultural artifacts found at each of the sites.

If you are interested in participation of archaeological site soil description, please fill out the google poll with the link below and we will keep you updated as details develop.
