"The First Billion Years on Mars: Insights from Crustal and Sedimentary Records"
Thursday, February 4, 2016 - 00:00
DTM Weekly Seminar Series
Kevin Lewis, an assistant professor in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Johns Hopkins University, will give a talk titled, "The First Billion Years on Mars: Insights from Crustal and Sedimentary Records", at 11 a.m. on Thursday, 4 Febraury 2016, in the Greenewalt Lecture Hall as part of DTM's Weekly Seminar Series.
Lewis received his Ph.D. in planetary science from Caltech in 2009. His research focuses on problems in planetary geophysics, from the scale of a grain of sand all the way up to the crust of a planet. He has worked in depth on the nature of sedimentary rocks of Mars, and what they might record about that planet's past climate and habitability. He is also interested in understanding the large-scale properties of planetary lithospheres using magnetic, gravity, and topography data sets.
Coffee, tea, and a continental breakfast will be served before the lecture at 10:30 a.m.
