Overview

Roadside Geology of Indiana by Mark J Camp, Graham T. Richardson, Maine


Hundreds of millions of years ago, warm, coral-rich seas deposited mud on the ocean floor, and in time it became limestone--the cornerstone of Indiana geology. From the fossil-studded rocks and twisting caverns of the southern hills to the coal seams of the Wabash Valley and the shifting sands of the glacial plains, Roadside Geology of Indiana provides a window to a vibrant and dynamic past. With this book as your guide, tour Indiana's timeworn topography and discover fossilized reefs, mastodon skeletons, geodes, buried bedrock valleys, and the site of a meteorite impact.

About the Author


Mark J. Camp, a native of Toledo, Ohio, began his teaching career at Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana, in 1974. He joined the faculty at the University of Toledo in 1976 and teaches courses in introductory geology, paleontology, the geology of national parks, and Ohio geology. He received his MS in geology from the University of Toledo and his PhD in geology from the Ohio State University. His recent research-focused on the history of Midwest geological studies, the use of building stones in historical buildings, quarry and mine development, and the architecture of railroad depots-reflects his long-standing interest in late nineteenth and early twentieth-century history. He is the author of Roadside Geology of Indiana, Railroad Depots of Northwest Ohio, and Railroad Depots of West Central Ohio.
