Bretz Club - Geomorphology for Oregonians
"Ideas without precedent are generally looked upon with disfavor and men are shocked if their conceptions of an orderly world are challenged" - J. Harlen Bretz, 1928
The Bretz Club brings together Oregon geomorphologists and those studing Oregon geomorphology to encourage new ideas, new friendships, and new collaborations amongst those sharing a love of the Earth’s surface. We draw inspiration from J. Harlen Bretz, whose ideas about the catastrophic flood origin of geomorphologic features in the Northwest was initially met with skepticism and derision and are modeled after the wildly successful Gilbert Club.
The Bretz Masterminds: Gordon Grant, USDA Forest Service, PNW Research Station; Sarah Lewis & Andrew Meigs, College of Earth Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences, Oregon State University; Jim O'Connor, US Geological Survey; Josh Roering, University of Oregon
