"Surficial geology" refers to the study of landforms and the unconsolidated sediments that lie beneath them. The majority of the unconsolidated sediments found at the land surface were deposited during the late Wisconsin glaciation, 21, to 13, years ago.   The classification, management, and conservation of the state’s geological resources are vital for Iowa’s economic stability and growth. As a reliable source of information on water, mineral, rock, soil, and energy resources, the IGS can help resolve environmental issues and provide guidance for all .   Expert on Surficial Processes to join the department of geology and geography We are pleased to announce that Charlie Shobe, a geomorphologist specializing in cutting edge modeling of landscape evolution, will join the WVU Department of Geology and Geography as a new assistant professor in January
