Science Inquiry Lecture - Microbes, Carbon and Climate: Impacts of a Changing Cryosphere
- Wednesday, March 11, 2020 at 7:00pm
- 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.
What can the study of microbes living in cold temperature environments tell us about the physical limits of life? Dr. Christine Foreman, Associate Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering at MSU, will discuss how her research with deep ice cores and current environments provides insights into bacterial processes in cold places, past and present, and how carbon moves through these living systems in the context of a changing climate.
Hager Auditorium lectures have a limited capacity and are open on a first-come, first-served basis. The doors open 30 minutes before each lecture. Attendees may not save seats for others.
Free and open to the public.
