Much of ICR's research is done out-
side the walls of its San Diego-area
facility. This is certainly the case with
the work conducted by Dr. John
Morris, whose field explorations at Mt.
Ararat, the Grand Canyon, Mount St.
Helens, the Paluxy River, and other
sites attest. In particular, Dr. Morris's
expeditions to Mt. Ararat in search of
Noah's Ark have given ICR wide inter-
national exposure. Much of Dr. Mor-
ris's research is now shared with
"Back to Genesis" audiences around
the country. He also teaches geology
in the ICR Graduate School.
Before coming to ICR on a full-time
basis in 1984, Dr. Morris served as an
Assistant Professor in Geological
Engineering at the University of Okla-
homa, where he had received his Ph.D.
in 1980. He had received his B.S. from
Virginia Tech in 1969.
Among his most recent books are
Noah's Ark and the Lost World, Sci-
ence, Scripture and the Young Earth,
coauthored with his father, ICR
President Dr. Henry M. Morris, and
the newly released children's book
entitled What Really Happened to the
Dinosaurs?, coauthored by Ken
Dr. Morris is also well known as a
debater, is a frequent guest on na-
tionwide television and radio pro-
grams, and is coeditor of Acts &
Facts and Days of Praise.
