Boise State Physics First Friday Astronomy
December 2 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm MST
Mud Volcanism: Insights Provided by Orbital Remote Sensing Datasets
Dr. Dapremont’s 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.
Join Boise State Physics on Friday, December 2nd at 7:30pm in the Multipurpose Classroom Building, room 101 to hear Dr. Angela Dapremont of Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab talk about the fascinating mud volcanoes on Mars. 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.
