DeFord Lecture: Jennifer McIntosh

January, 28 2021

Time: 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Evolution of Earth’s Deep Terrestrial Water Cycle over Geological Timescales

About Dr. Jennifer McIntosh (University of Arizona)
Hydrogeochemist who works at the interface of hydrology, geochemistry, and microbiology to understand micro (pore) to macro (continental scale) processes throughout the earth’s crust. Regional hydrogeologic phenomena and geofluids. Reactive transport.

DeFord Lecture Series
Since the 1940\'s, the DeFord (Technical Sessions) lecture series, initially the official venue for disseminating DGS graduate student research, is a forum for lectures by distinguished visitors and members of our community. This is made possible through a series of endowments.

UTIG Seminar Series: Emily Eidam, UNC at Chapel Hill

January, 29 2021

Time: 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Contactcosta@ig.utexas.edufor a link to join the live talk.

Speaker: Emily Eidam, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Host: John Goff

Research Areas: Fluvial and coastal sediment transport dynamics

LEO Seminar Series: Liz Catlos and Ginny Catania

February, 03 2021

Time: 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

The purpose of LEO is to create a more inclusive and educated community within the JSG by sharing and listening to each other’s stories. Speakers will interview each other and talk about why they are involved in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion efforts and the heart behind their work. By learning more about why individuals are involved in DEI, we will broaden our understanding of the impacts the JSG is making on students, faculty, staff, and greater society. Taking initiative to get to know each other, ask questions, and Listen to Each Other is a skill that will propel us further to be leaders in the geosciences.

DeFord Lecture: Kathleen Johnson

February, 04 2021

Time: 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

About Dr. Kathleen Johnson (University of California Irvine)

Speleothem researcher that specializes in reconstructing Asian monsoon and California coastal drought dynamics; utilizes instrumental climate data, paleoclimate data and isotope-enabled climate models to investigate the spatial and temporal patterns of natural climate variability, calibrate paleoclimate proxy data and investigate mechanisms of past climate variability.

Member of the Grand Traverse Band of Ottowa and Chippewa Indians and is actively researching with her native community.
