Geology of the Seattle area (Video)

Geology of the Seattle area – Video:

If you’ve ever lived in the Seattle area, you will find this video by geologist Nick Zentner absolutely fascinating.

The geology of the Seattle, Washington, area is a direct result of multiple glacial advances that left drumlins, outwash, glacial troughs, and scattered glacial erratics as evidence of their passage.

Old tidelands filled by early residents of Seattle are now home to the SODO district, an active commercial area where both the Seattle Seahawks and the Seattle Mariners stadiums are located.

This video, entitled “Geology of Seattle and the Puget Sound,” was originally published on March 2, 2015

Tom Foster ( and Nick Zentner (Central Washington University) have been hiking together in Washington for years. ’Geology of Seattle’ is part of an “I-90 Rocks” video series.
