Geology Open Night
Start Date: 10/23/2015Start Time: 7:30 PM
End Date: 10/23/2015

Event Description:

Speaker: Deanne Rogers, Assistant Professor, Geosciences

Topic: Deciphering the Climate History of Mars through the Mineralogic Record

Clear evidence for fluids moving across the Martian surface suggest a warm and wet climate may have persisted on Mars over 3.5 billion years ago. Yet climate models are unable to produce such an environment. Examination of the mineral types found on the Martian surface, and their geologic context, provides clues about the aqueous history and environmental conditions that may have persisted on ancient Mars. Prof. Rogers will discuss some of these findings and how they have advanced current understanding of Martian aqueous environments.
