      The complementary fields of geology and geophysics are combined in one interdisciplinary department, with graduate degrees offered in both disciplines. The undergraduate degree is in geology and geophysics. Geology offers unusual opportunities to interweave knowledge from many disciplines in the study of natural Earth phenomena.

      THE PLEISTOCENE EPOCH THE ICE AGE Yeager Rock [Mansfield, WA.] was left stranded at this location when the Okanogan Lobe of the Cordilleran Ice sheet retreated. See Yeager Rock viewed from north at bottom of this page. The flood torrents that gushed from Lake Missoula were possible only because the region was in the grip of the Ice Age. In northern Wisconsin, granite to granodiorite of varied texture. In southern Wisconsin (not mapped separately), red to pink alkali-feldspar granophyric granite associated with rhyolites of both peraluminous and metaluminous affinities (unit Xr of Marshfield terrane).

      Wisconsin was probably glaciated dozens of times during the Pleistocene Epoch (– Ma), but stratigraphical units provide direct evidence for at least four glaciations. Even though Wisconsin lies well north of the maximum extent of Quaternary glaciations, the Driftless Area in the south-western part of the state remained unglaciated (Fig. ). Figure Surficial Geology of MDI (Lowell and Borns, ). Thomas Lowell was from Lincoln ME and in earned a MS in Pleistocene geology from the University of Maine. The , scale MDI surficial map was a side product of his Master’s thesis work. Lowell was primarily concerned.
