Field conference helps write the book on Pennsylvania geology

Gold, emeritus professor of geosciences at Penn State, said the story can be found in the pages of guidebooks published each year as part of the annual Field Conference of Pennsylvania Geologists.

“If someone was commissioned to write the history of Pennsylvania geology, 90 percent would come out from what’s in those guidebooks,” Gold said.
