Dr. Angela Dapremont, John Hopkins University, will present “Mars Mud Volcanism: Insights Provided by Orbital Remote Sensing Datasets”
December 2 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm MST
Join the BSU Physics Department for our First Friday Astronomy Event:
Friday, December 2nd, 7:30pm in Multi-Purpose Classroom Building, Room 101 and Stargazing at 8:30pm in the Sci/Ed Building
The event is free and open to the public.
For those that cannot attend in person, the lecture will be live-streamed on Youtube at boi.st/AstroBroncosLive. Those attending the live-stream are welcome and encouraged to ask questions via chat.
After the lecture we will stargaze in Boise State’s observatory, weather permitting. An indoor planetarium may be set up in case stargazing is not an option.
More information on the lecture:
“This talk will focus on the geologic process of mud volcanism, also termed subsurface sediment mobilization, on Mars. The lecture will include a discussion of the insights that orbital remote sensing assets currently at Mars have provided about the compositional characteristics of putative mud volcanoes, as well as details pertaining to the implications of studying this geologic phenomenon which include Martian climate, comparative planetology, and future landed mission exploration of the Martian surface.”
