Aldo Leopold's A Sand County Almanac
This lecture on Aldo Leopold's A Sand County Almanac, delivered at Lawrence University on February 1, 2006, was designed for students and faculty in the college's Freshman Studies program. Freshman Studies, a multidisciplinary introduction to the liberal arts, has been the cornerstone of the Lawrence curriculum for over fifty years. The lecturer, Marcia Bjornerud, is a Professor of Geology. Professor Bjornerud takes particular interest in the internal 'architecture' of mountain belts and how large- and small-scale deformational features in rocks can be used to understand how mountains grow. She has carried out field studies in areas of the Norwegian and Canadian high Arctic, as well as Ontario and northern Wisconsin. Her research integrates field observations with quantitative analysis and computer modeling.
