On February 23rd at 9 p.m. PST (10 p.m. MST), KSPS-TV (Spokane) presented the premiere showing of "Sculpted by Floods." This hour-long special tells the story of cataclysmic floods that swept across the Pacific Northwest when ancient lakes burst through their glacial dams 15,000 years ago. Producer-director Alison Kartevold worked with USGS scientist Richard Waitt (VHZ, Vancouver, WA) to document terrestrial evidence of the floods and with USGS scientist Bill Normark (CMG, Menlo Park) to discuss where the floodwaters went when they hit the sea. "Sculpted by Floods" will be made available for re-broadcast by other public TV stations, and a videotape will be available for purchase soon after the premiere. The video costs $28 (shipping included) and can be ordered from KSPS at 1-800-735-2377 or 509-354-7800.
