Science Inquiry Lecture: Microbes, Carbon, and Climate: Impacts of a Changing Cryosphere

Date: Wednesday, April 14, 2021 at 7:00pm – 8:00pm

Winter/Spring 2021 Virtual Science Inquiry Lecture Series
Explore cutting-edge science topics, their latest developments, and their relevance to society. A question and answer period will follow speaker presentations. This speaker series is sponsored by the Gallatin Valley Friends of the Sciences and co-sponsored by Hopa Mountain and Museum of the Rockies.

Microbes, Carbon, and Climate: Impacts of a Changing Cryosphere
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.

Free and open to the public via Zoom.
