Portland, Oregon, USA—the City of Roses—is located in the heart of one of the most dynamic geologic environments in the West, having been affected by megathrust earthquakes, giant flood-basalt eruptions, catastrophic glacial floods, continuing fluvial and hillslope processes, and human influences on the landscape. Founded along the banks of the Columbia and Willamette rivers, Portland is nestled between the magnificent volcanic arc of the Cascade Range to the east and the Coast Range to the west. Building on the exceptional local and regional geological features of the Cordillera, we have devised a diverse program reflecting fundamental and applied aspects across earth-science disciplines.
