  • Speaker : Victor R. Baker, University of Arizona
  • Date : Thursday, Jan. 14th, 2016
  • Time : 12:30 ~ 2:00 pm
  • Location : Saywell 10061
  • Blurb : Professor Baker has long studied the most spectacular and immense flood phenomena known to occur anywhere in the solar system.  Ice Age megafloods on Earth altered the circulation of oceans and changed the Earth’s climate.  Megafloods on Mars billions of years ago generated conditions like the Earth’s Ice Age, possibly producing a habitable planet.
