Glacial Lake Missoula and the Ice Age Floods
In 1910, Pardee, a Montanan who worked for the United States Geologic Survey (USGS), published a paper on Glacial Lake Missoula. He proposed that the lake had formed as glaciers moved south, blocking Clark Fork River. He estimated the lake covered nearly 2,900 cubic miles and held 500 cubic miles of water at its maximum extent. In his paper he never discussed what happened to the water that filled this glacial lake. Later in 1942, Pardee published Unusual Currents in Glacial Lake Missoula. Pardee discovered what he called "giant ripple marks" in an area that was once occupied by Glacial Lake Missoula. These ripple marks were far from ordinary ripple marks. With an average height of 15-30 feet and a wavelength of 250 feet, they would dwarf any ordinary ripple mark you might find on a beach or in a river today. Pardee attributed this phenomenon to the sudden failure of the ice dam that impounded Glacial Lake Missoula.

1910 Timeline of American History / Montana Heritage Project
After a few years of wandering the hills and mountain canyons around Missoula, and studying geology books, Joseph Pardee published "The Glacial Lake Missoula, Montana" in the Journal of Geology, sharing with the world what he had learned in his explorations of deep time. A vast, inland sea had once covered the mountain valleys of western Montana, caused by a glacier damming the river near today's Sand Point, Idaho, some 13,000 years ago.

Lesbian Mountains in Love / Christopher K. Ho
'Lesbian Mountains in Love' is a projection of two mountains side-by-side: Mount Rainier in Washington State and El Popo just outside Mexico City. Depicted in real time, they speak to each other in private, loving tones: "Will you remember to watch for the full moon?"
