Department Seminar - Simpson

Tue, Apr 26, 2022, 12:30 pm

A critical question to address as the planet warms under anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions is, how is regional hydroclimate going to change?  The US southwest has already experienced considerable aridification since the turn of the century and was plunged into exceptional drought conditions over the course of 2020, and is yet to recover. ...

Special Seminar - Jaffe

Tue, Apr 19, 2022, 12:30 pm

In this lecture, Dr. Jaffe will illustrate his past use of acoustic and optical sensors that have led to a variety of insights into plankton 

distribution and behavior. Current developments will also be described, which include the use of machine learning algorithms to obtain taxonomic

HMEI Faculty Seminar - Carruth

Tue, Apr 5, 2022, 12:30 pm

Carruth will discuss why data-driven doomsday stories of extreme weather and sea-level rise have proven inadequate in countering disinformation about climate change. While “the science is clear” has become a rhetorical appeal to accept the expert consensus on climate change, who holds this view is still defined by political affiliations and...

Department Seminar - Weldeghebriel

Wed, Mar 16, 2022, 4:30 pm

Long-term changes in the major ion and isotopic composition of seawater coincide with icehouse-greenhouse climate fluctuations, calcite-aragonite seas, and sea level changes. Currently, there is disagreement over what processes control the changes in ocean chemistry.

Department Seminar - Sharma

Tue, Mar 15, 2022, 4:30 pm

Wetland soils and hyporheic zones at the base of streams develop redox gradients, producing regions of aerobic and anaerobic microbial activity that make them active sites for biogeochemical processes.

Department Seminar - George

Tue, Mar 15, 2022, 12:30 pm

Exhumed metamorphic rocks provide unique geological insight into lithospheric processes of mass and heat transfer. They are an archive of information on the evolution of tectonic modes on Earth, the uplift of orogenic belts and strength of continents, and processes of mass and fluid cycling between Earth’s surface and interior.
