A temperate deciduous forest Free-Air Carbon Enrichment (FACE) facility – results from seasons 0, 1, 2 (& 3) of 10

13:00 - 14:00 26 February 2020

Prof Rob Mackenzie, University of Birmingham, joins us for a Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences seminar. Abstract below. The land carbon sink is calculated to be the most important carbon cycle feedback to 21st century climate change, yet forecasts are highly uncertain and Earth-system models of the process contain ‘known unkno..

Interfacial network geometry: some effects of deformation and melting

13:00 - 14:00 01 April 2020

Dr Katharina Marquardt, Imperial College London, joins us for a Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences seminar. Abstract below. Rocks are made of mineral grains and grain boundaries in between grains that form a three-dimensional network. This network has an important contribution to mantle dynamic processes, including magma generati..

Organic/Inorganic interactions during analysis: Implications for life detection missions to Mars

13:00 - 16:00 15 April 2020

Dr Samuel Royle, Imperial College London, joins us for a Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences seminar. Abstract below. Attempts by both current (Mars Sample Laboratory/Curiosity) and imminent (ExoMars) Mars missions to find evidence of past or present life revolve around the detection of organic molecules in Martian surface and nea..

Is Earth’s atmosphere growing, or shrinking?

13:00 - 14:00 29 April 2020

Dr Sami Mikhail, MinSoc Distinguished Lecturer, University of St Andrews, joins us for a Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences seminar. Abstract below. The chemistry of a planet’s atmosphere is an archive of surface and subsurface processes, inclusive of volcanism, weathering, meteoritic influx, and biological processes. In additi..

Discovering new mercury methylating bacteria in the world’s oceans with meta-omics and protein structure/function modelling

13:00 - 14:00 06 May 2020

Dr John Moreau, University of Glasgow, joins us for a Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences seminar. Abstract below. Methylmercury (MeHg, CH3Hg+) bioaccumulates in marine food webs as a potent neurotoxin. Microbial methylation of inorganic mercury (Hg2+) produces most environmental MeHg. The gene pair hgcAB encodes for Hg(II) methyl..
