Program Description

Event Details

Join Christopher Jones for Skype a Scientist! Jones is a PhD student at the University of California, Riverside studying geobiology, marine geochemistry, and marine geology! Come prepared with your questions about the ocean and Christopher will answer them!

This is offered as a part of the Winter Adult Reading Program.  

More about Jones: Christopher is interested in using rocks and sediments deposited in the ocean to investigate how the Earth’s atmosphere has evolved since the Earth formed and how that has been impacted by the evolution of life. Christopher is also interested in the ways that metals are cycled in marine sediments and rocks, especially how they are cycled during biological processes. One of the ways Christopher accomplishes this is through studying the modern ocean by going on oceanographic research expeditions. To sum it all up: Christopher studies the modern ocean and its processes to understand how the Earth has changed through time. 

Despite the name, this program will be hosted via Zoom. Please register with an email address and the Zoom link will be sent to you.
