Science Inquiry Lecture: Flying Bacteria As Potential Rainmakers
- Wednesday, April 18, 2018 from 7:00pm to 8:30pm
- Museum of the Rockies, Hager Auditorium - view map
Join MOR and the Gallatin Valley Friends of the Sciences as we explore cutting-edge science topics, their latest developments, and their relevance to society through speaker presentations followed by an engaging question and answer session.
"Flying" Bacteria As Potential Rainmakers: Certain plant-infecting bacteria that can be found circulating high in the atmosphere can also promote the formation of ice crystals needed to produce rain. Dr. David Sands, Professor of Plant Pathology at MSU, will discuss the possibilities of such “bioprecipitation” and its implications for potential mitigation of natural events including droughts and wildfires.
Cost: Free to the public
