(SANTA BARBARA, CA) The Santa Barbara Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation welcomes Dr. Edward Keller to its free, open to the public, bi-monthly mixer on Thursday, June 20th. Keller is Professor of Earth Science and Environmental Studies at UC Santa Barbara, where he has been a member of the faculty since 1976. He is one of the foremost experts on tectonic geomorphology, the study of processes that create, among other things, the wave-cut terraces of the Pacific coast. The author of several widely used textbooks on environmental geology, tectonic geomorphology, and environmental science, with over 20 years of experience in public service and consulting on a variety of subjects including erosion, coastal processes, and landscape history, Keller’s timely discussion of the history of Goleta Beach and its present erosion problems, the options science offers for dealing with these problems, and his views on how we can plan and implement a solution that will reflect our values, should offer spirited discussion!
