Connecticut Geology

Geologists marvel at the incredible diversity of earth history recorded in Connecticut’s rocks. This program provides a complete geological history of the state – illustrated with animations, video clips, maps and diagrams – and describes how fundamental geological forces worked over great spans of time to piece together and shape our region. Learn where continents once collided, how molten rock once flowed over and through the surface, how glaciers sculpted our modern landscape and more!
Brendan Hanrahan is the publisher of the Road to Discovery Series of guidebooks of day trips to explore the natural history of Connecticut. The guides aim to make it easy for anyone to explore local places where discoveries about geology,   dinosaurs and the State’s native wild places have been made for centuries.

Mr. Hanrahan also produced a series of videos capturing the life histories of native amphibians and reptiles. He is a graduate of Reed College.
