Brookhaven Women in Science (BWIS) Activity

"Biogeophysics: Geophysical Sensors for Biogeochemical Hotspots and the Search for Life"

Estella Atekwana, UC Davis

Wednesday, March 13, 2024, 4:00 pm — Videoconference / Virtual Event (see link below)

Biogeophysics merges the study of microorganisms with geophysical sensing to uncover their significant impacts on Earth's materials and processes. This interdisciplinary field leverages advanced sensors to detect the physical alterations caused by microbial activities across diverse and hard-to-access environments from deep oceans to Antarctic ice. In this presentation, Atekwana will provide examples of how geophysical sensors are used to sense microbial activity below the earth's surface. Future directions such as the search for life on other planetary bodies will also be explored. Pre-registration is required.
