“Deep sea dives and antarctic geology
Sacramento Science Distilled
Wednesday, November 16th, 2016
6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Old Ironsides
1901 10th St. Sacramento
21+ event, FREE TO ATTEND

Come to Sacramento’s Science Distilled series! You’ll hear a short, idea-centered talk from a local expert in the sciences. After the talk, we’ll have a lively discussion that brings science into context for everyday life.

November’s topic- Deep sea dives and antarctic geology.

Our speakers will be Dr. Amy Wagner of CSUS and Dr. Steve Skinner of CSUS. Dr. Wagner studies the skeletal material of reef corals, which can reveal prehistoric oceanographic and climate information, and offer valuable comparisons to present-day ocean and climate conditions. Dr. Skinner studies rock samples from Antarctica to understand changes to the earth’s magnetic fields. He looks particularly at the Cretaceous period (before the mass extinction of the dinosaurs).
