Extreme Aquatic Environments in The Antarctic Dry Valleys
Thursday, March 23, 2006
4:10 PM in 204 Natural Science Building
Refreshments are served at 3:30 PM in 207 Natural Science Building.

     Peter has broad research interests focused on field techniques in aquatic and Quaternary sciences.  Example research areas include

·         modern hydrological and biogeochemical processes in polar lake systems

·         paleolimnology and paleoenvironmental reconstruction

·         sedimentology of high arctic lakes

·         origins and nature of boulders and glacial till on perennial lake ice,

·         biogeochemistry of deeply ice-covered lakes,

·         paleolake deposits in the Antarctic dry valleys and their significance to the search for evidence of past life on Mars

     Peter is currently a co-PI on the McMurdo Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) project in the McMurdo Dry Valleys of Antarctica.  Current work also includes a NASA Exobiology project investigating dry valley lakes in the context of the past lakes on Mars, an NSF OPP project to evaluate past climate change sediment cores in the dry valleys, and a NASA ASTEP (Astrobiology Science and Technology for Exploring Planets) project to do life detection in an ice-sealed lake.
     I hope that you will be able to attend.  Please inform others of this talk.  Thanks!
