On Friday April 24, Dr. Barbara John from the University of Wyoming will present several aspects of her work at Science Workshop. Dr. John has done groundbreaking work in understanding extensional plate boundaries across the globe, and has most recently focused on investigating dynamics of slow-spreading mid-ocean ridges. Come and learn about how to conduct geologic research beneath several thousand meters of seawater, and what we are learning about Earth’s last frontier.
