Earth’s 4.5 billion year history is an epic of dramatic change through physical, chemical, and biological processes. Large and growing data resources, coupled with new analytical and visualization methods, are revealing the ancient origins and evolution of Earth and life in new and vivid detail.
The school of Earth and Environmental Science invites you to a public lecture by Professor Robert Hazen, Senior scientist at the Geophysical Laboratory of the Carnegie Institute of Washington and Executive Director of the Deep Carbon Observatory. Professor Hazen will be introduced by Principal Sally Mapstone.
