DTM Weekly Seminar Series
Barbara Romanowicz

Barbara Romanowicz, a professor at the University of California at Berkeley, will give a talk titled "Mantle Plumes Rooted at the Core-mantle Boundary: Evidence from Seismic Waveform Tomography" at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, May 16, 2017, in the Greenewalt Lecture Hall as part of DTM's Weekly Seminar Series.

Romanowicz received her Ph.D. in geophysics from the Paris Diderot University in 1979. She is interested in deep Earth structure and dynamics using seismological tools, earthquake processes and scaling laws, real-time estimation of earthquake parameters, development of modern broadband seismic and geophysical observations on land and in the oceans, and planetary seismology.

Coffee, tea, and a light breakfast will be served before the lecture at 10:30 a.m.

"Global Warming: Geochemical and Geophysical Implications of a Higher Mantle Temperature"

Erik Hauri

Erik Hauri, a staff scientist at DTM, will give a talk titled "Global Warming: Geochemical and Geophysical Implications of a Higher Mantle Temperature" at 11 a.m. on Thursday, May 11, 2017, in the Greenewalt Lecture Hall as part of DTM's Weekly Seminar Series.

Hauri received his Ph.D. in geochemistry from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in 1992. The goal of his research is to understand how planetary processes affect the chemistry of the Earth, Moon and other objects, and to use that chemistry to understand the origin and evolution of planetary bodies.

Coffee, tea, and a light breakfast will be served before the lecture at 10:30 a.m.

Third Annual GL/DTM Poster Session

Poster Session

May 9, 2017
Annual Poster Session
DTM/GL

The 3rd Annual DTM/GL Poster Session* will take place at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, May 9, 2017, in the Tuve Dining Hall in which anyone on campus is invited to share recent results, crazy ideas, pictures, a video, or a demo of a recent invention. 

The annual poster session, planned this year by DTM postdocs Miki Nakajima and Erika Nesvold and Geophysical Laboratory postdoc Zachary Gaballe, aims to provide Carnegie postdocs, staff scientists, and admin a chance to see what others on campus have been working on. The hosts encourage participants to share ideas about anything related to the on-goings at BBR—data, models, publishing, building engineering, machining, electronics, microscopy, paying taxes, accounting, IT developments, lunch club innovations, etc.

Last year, the session was comprised of 42 original posters. Topics ranged from astronomy to material physics, drawing in more than 60 attendees. A buzz of excitement enveloped the room that afternoon, as participants and attendees mingled together going poster to poster to share their science with each other.

*This event is open to Carnegie personnel only.

"Recovering a Record of Asteroid Collisions in Marine Sediments"

DTM Weekly Seminar Series
Philipp Heck

Philipp Heck, the Robert A. Pritzker Associate curator of meteoritics and polar studies at the Field Museum of Natural History, will give a talk titled "Recovering a Record of Asteroid Collisions in Marine Sediments" at 11 a.m on Thursday, May 4, 2017, in the Greenewalt Lecture Hall as part of DTM's Weekly Seminar Series.

Heck received his Ph.D. in geo- and cosmochemistry at ETH Zurich in Switzerland. As the curator in charge and head of the Robert A. Pritzker Center for Meteoritics and Polar Studies, Heck oversees the collection of meteorites, the largest meteorite collection housed at a private research institution. Other responsibilities include the curation of the gem, mineral, rock and economic geology collections.

Coffee, tea, and a light breakfast will be served before the lecture at 10:30 a.m.
