Biography of Professor Kevin Pogue

     Kevin R. Pogue is a native Kentuckian who moved to the northwest after receiving his B.S. in Geology from the University of Kentucky. He received his M.S. in Geology from Idaho State University where he studied the structural geology of the western part of the Idaho-Wyoming thrust belt. He continued his graduate studies at Oregon State University where he concentrated on the stratigraphy, structural geology, and tectonics of the Himalayan thrust belt of northern Pakistan. Dr. Pogue is currently involved in research on the geologic and geographic controls on the terroir of the Walla Walla Valley American Viticulture Area and the Quaternary clastic dikes of the Columbia Basin. He is presently writing a book on the geology of City of Rocks National Reserve and Castle Rocks State Park, Idaho.
