Jack Ridge, Ph.D., is Professor of Earth and Ocean Sciences in the School of Arts and Sciences at Tufts University.  His research interests include layering in the reconstruction of the last deglaciation in the northeastern United States, primarily as indicated by the annual layering (varves) of sediments from glacial lakes.

Professor Ridge can speak about:

  • Environmental geography and geology including environmental issues
  • Geomorphology – land surface processes (soils, erosion, rivers, etc.)
  • Quaternary and glacial geography and geology including glacial deposits, past glaciation, and modern glaciers and their relation to climate
  • Geology of the Boston area – rock formations and glaciation
