Summer Reading - Adults

 Roy Torley, also known as The Gentleman Scientist, has a gift for making science fun and accessible.  His extensive science background includes volcanoes, Oregon geology and geophysics.  He has a Ph.D. in geology from the University of Oregon and was instrumental in developing the first wind-energy technology program on the West Coast.

July 16: Oceans: Wet and Wild

The oceans cover three-quarters of the Earth's surface, but how much do we know about them?  Take a journey above and below the oceans to learn more about the ocean floors, the coasts, islands, hurricanes, El Nino, tidal waves and more.

July 23: Volcanoes

Volcanoes can seem like any other mountain, standing quietly for centuries as sentinels guarding the countryside, then erupt violently.  Take a tour across the Earth and the solar system, examining volcanoes near and far.

 July 30: Do you have your Head in a Cloud?

Clouds are like different forms of life - denizens of the atmosphere.  They come in all shapes and sizes and perhaps personality traits.  Take a cloud-watching tour through the Earth's air envelope and become entranced by both common and exotic cloud formations.


Kids ages 7 and up are welcome to attend this lecture series for adults.
